If the wall was in such a state, why it has not been mentioned in the stories of the Japanese militarists?
Japanese troops near Beijing simply not noticed the wall?
If before 1950 the whole wall was in ruins?
Or walls have never been?
And another version-Great Wall of China was built in 1950 from the remains other buildings.
Only this can explain the old age of the building material.
Can The Great Wall is one of mankind another hoax? How Gardens of Babylon?
Just hype?
I'll tell you a story.
The story took place in ancient Greece.
"In ancient Athens lived a respected citizen named Pariklos.
One day our hero was sent to conclude a peace treaty with Sparta.
Sparta was the worst enemy of Athens.
Pariklos speak to an audience in the main hall of Sparta.
"Athenian democracy the most wonderful thing in the world.
Other countries are not the bulwark of democracy.
They need the Athenian democracy.
A peace treaty with Athens will bring a peaceful life."- he said.
Suddenly one Spartan jumped up, ran to Pariklos and mechanically plucked from his head wig.
Throwing a wig on the floor,the Spartan gave a speech:

"What truth can say is this man?
If he's cheating not only in the heart and on the tongue, but on the head? "

Our hero was expelled in disgrace from the city."

The story ended, but the deception and the lies continue in our time.
Why residents of Maryland refused to hear the speech of Barack Obama?
Because all his words are nothing but lies.
All of his presidential term, he lied to his people and the world.
Liars that he and his government.
Donald Trump was right.
Barack Obama and his government are guilty of the deaths of civilians in Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and South-East of Ukraine.
Barack Obama and his government in the blood of innocent people of these countries.
Barack Obama and his government is the murderer.

I am ashamed that we have such a President.
I curse Barack Obama and his government.

陈家堡长城

Chen Jia Bao Greatwall
http://www.ngmchina.com.cn/bbs/viewt...tra=#pid603889

Today I went on a hike of the Chen Jia Bao great wall, it wasn't a hard trek, I found it challenging because I am not a keen hiker, but I was pushing myself, I didn't want to lag behind!

This section of the wall is mostly unrestored, making it treacherous, particularly on the steepest parts!

Chen Jia Bao greatwall -3

陈家堡长城位于延庆石峡关长城西边,长城比较偏僻,去爬的人不多。
不过总体来看,陈家堡长城保存的还是不错的,也不少很陡,适合各类人群攀爬。

Hello everyone, past few months when I had time I marked Great Wall of China ( I was bored ) on Google Earth, some marks might be fake or false, because I don't know if it was real Wall or not. I'm gonna post some pictures from Google Earth, first ones are gonna be overall what I marked, I will try to pinpoint exact coordinates so you may find it too. Wall is marked as a white line on maps. On some pictures it may be hard to spot a White line, but later I will post bigger pictures. I used Wikipedia as source where to search for a wall.

Climb to the top of the Dayingpan wall 大营盘 ( Big Camp Plate Great Wall ) . The stairs are steep upward, and even steeper down...
On top you will have a view to remember the rest of your life. Breathtaking.
