Han Great Wall

Great wall of Han Dynasty in Dunhuang made full use of the local advantages and geographical location for material. Fortress walls were built by hamming at some places, while moats were dug at other places. Some legs are pure natural screen, while others are simple beacon towers and fence-like defense works. Through huge ups and downs of 2,000-year weathering, sand covering and man-made damage, such great walls have completely changed their appearance. Some have been flattened with on sign of existence or just low bank of earth and ditches, so the past charm has disappeared. Only the beacon towers at their ruins are telling people of the trend and history of the Han fortress. Despite the historical regret of advancing sand and retreating human beings, we have more tourist attractions today as clues preserved for mourning the history.
