Beijing Great Wall Map
The Great Wall was built across six districts or counties in Beijing, such as Pinggu, Miyun, Huairou, Yanqing, Changping and Mentougou from east to west. Forming a half hoop shape, it protected the safety of this city. It measures about 1,258 li (391 miles). The repaired part is only 58 li (18 miles), comprising about 5% of the full length. The famous sections of Beijing Great Wall include Badaling, Mutianyu, Jinshanling, Simatai and Jiankou.
