History and sights

Its wall attracts many tourists. According to the tickets for access to the wall, construction of the wall, originally over 6 kilometres (3.7 miles) long, began in the Jin Dynasty (266–420) and was not finished until the Sui (581–618) and Tang (618–907) Dynasties. The northern portion, along a high ridge, and the western & southern portions, along the Lin River, still exist and are in good condition.
