Wild Wild Wall - Miyun Laoyemiao, Xiaohuangyankou South Section

There was a road in the world. No one left, and it disappeared. Walk the Great Wall and witness the trails that the ancients used to defend their lives, pondering the years of the bonfires, gems and iron horses, appreciating the uncanny workmanship, majestic and magnificent nature, comprehending the changing times, the evolution of civilization and the progress of society.

History needs to look back. The former does not forget the teacher of the later incident. Walking the Great Wall is a process of comprehending the heavy history with both feet and exploring the footprints forgotten by modern civilization.

I. The Great Wall of Laoyi Temple and the South Section of Xiaohuangyankou

The Great Wall climbed northward from May 1st and came down to Laoye Temple, and climbed to Xiao Huangyan, where Bingyingfang Village was located to the north and west. From Laoye Temple to Xiao Huangyan, because of the steep mountains and towering peaks, most of the sites are not built with continuous walls. They only have towers at several commanding elevations in view, and they have a short distance to the masonry. Stone wall. Throughout the entire journey, a total of 1 tower (left only) and 5 towers (not the remnant of the temple) were built. The three sections of the stone walls were located in the mountain beam and the first to the northwest of Laoye Temple. After a tower has been built on the side of the mountain (the two stone walls are about a hundred meters long), the third section of the stone wall is less than 20 meters long at a lower elevation after the fourth enemy building.

This kind of pedestal is dominated by towers, and some short walls are built between the low ridge of the ridge and the ridges on both sides of the crossing. Starting from this paragraph, it can be continued until the Great Black Gate and even the Great Horned Owl. Figure).

The main reason is that individuals think that it is the steep natural terrain that forms a natural barrier. The horses and horses of a small number of nomadic peoples in the north cannot pass through. Therefore, it is only necessary to build a barrier wall at the point where it is likely to pass through, and to build a platform at each commanding point as an outpost observation station. There is an enemy situation where you can report a wolf. Such mashups also indicate that the difficulty and risk of climbing and crossing are increasing, and you need to be brave enough to face, prepare carefully, overcome difficulties, and move ahead!

Second, through the line

The car stops at Beizhuang Town and goes to a certain place on the cement mountain road in Ganzigou Village (about 362 meters above sea level). It goes up the mountain road and passes through Ganzigou Village (hills in the mountains). It arrives at the ruins of Laoye Temple and begins to cross from southeast to northwest. This section of the Great Wall. Take a stone wall foundation first, then walk up and down the uphill ridge, pass the remains, go to the 1st platform, walk the second section of the stone wall, then the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th buildings, after a short wall of less than 20 meters, Along the faulty cliffs, winding and winding back to Tower 5, and then along the south valley (said that the north valley can also be lowered to the camp where Xiao Huangyan mouth is located, I do not know whether safe?) Rapidly withdraw to the cement road, back down to the parking.

The following is a trajectory map: The blue line is the GPS trajectory, the entire journey is 13 kilometers, the starting point is 362 meters above sea level, and the highest point is 833 meters above sea level, with a total increase of 780 meters, which takes 10 hours and 41 minutes. The crossings of the 5 towers are all undulating on the ridges. They try to walk through the shrubbery and carefully recognise the blurred roads. The general feeling is that there are many cliffs and steep cliffs. It is difficult to reach the cliff between the 4th and the 5th floors. It is more frightening to deal with it. You must take care to deal with it. , American donkeys are better to wear goggles and magic towel.

Third, the scenery along the way

The car parked here, along the way, "Mountain House" marked a lot, "Mountain House" is located in Ganjigou Village.

Go up the concrete road and go to Ganchaogou Village. The scenery is good all the way.

There is 2.9 km from Ganzigou Village.

Found "Tianmen Mountain" in front of you?

It turned out to be the "Little Tianmen Mountain". Although this landscape is rare in Beijing, it can't be compared with Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie.

The villages that have passed along the route are red roofs and blue roofs. In the summer, they are accompanied by mountains and green waters and have no other view.

Located in the village of Ganzigou, the “hills in the mountains” is cold and chilly, and there are already many vacations to visit. In the season of flowers, people are bound to shake their heads.

After the village of Ganchaogou, go up again and the farmhouse has been abandoned.

Not far in front of you will have to go to the Lao Temple.

The ruins of the Temple of the Loyal Masters, two weeks ago, the spring of the river --- fifty-one assault --- the LaoYe Temple Great Wall has been visited.

The remnants of the wall that rises from north to southwest from the lofty temple are the first section of the wall that the Great Wall crosses. It is more than a hundred meters long, and you can walk to the ridge in front of you.

Looking back at Laoye Temple, there are two Tai She chairs. It is a good place for tea viewing. Unfortunately, it is moderately hazy today and visibility is limited!

The first building after the “烽燧” was very honest, and the following several establishments were similar, except that the degree of damage was not the same.

The second section of the wall after building No. 1 feels like a single wall.

The ridge on the furthest right front looks like Building 2.

Looking back at the ridges that passed by, the tallest building in the farthest place is No. 1 building, but it is not close to Building No. 2!

Finally came to look forward to building 2.

Building 3 was damaged more seriously.

Building No. 4 is not at a nearby commanding height, but is built on a ridge where the line of sight is wider. In addition, I feel that Building 4 is also a more complete one in the five buildings.

Look back at the 4th and 3rd floors.

The north peak is very tall and handsome.

Tower 5!
