Discover The Ruins of the Great Wall of Han Dynasty
Unlike most famous sections that were renovated and built by using stones and bricks during the Ming Dynasty, the ruins of the Great Wall in Dunhuang, which has a story of long-standing history over 2000 years ago from the Han Dynasty, was constructed mostly using sand, reeds, woods and became a part of the thriving history of the Ancient Silk Road. The wall is currently in ruins and there is very little left, but it is a great ancient relic that can show you how old it truly is and how long it has existed. Standing desolate and remote in an arid, sandy region, the Ruins of the Great Wall of Han Dynasty is a far cry from the more photogenic grandiose structures under the same name in the Eastern China. Still, the distinction of the wall itself makes it a true voyage back in time to witness what is truly belonged into the ancient time as its own right besides telling you the full story of the Great Wall. For those interested in Chinese history in the earlier time or in the Silk Road, this is a must-see attraction that can easily be added into a day tour outside of Dunhuang.
