an unusual shot,few people go that far. Greetings from Hong Kong. Percy FAV
This is the restored section of the Great Wall at Jiayuguan that was built with mud and sand across the valley at Heavenly Pass. During the Ming Dynasty and for a long time afterwards, this is what separated the great Chinese Civilization from the barbarians of the west. Now it is crossed by a four lane highway and high speed trains. In the far distance of the photo is located the "First Pillar" watchtower that is the official "End of the Great Wall of China" It is a "must see" tourist attraction for any Silk Road traveller.
