... that the wall was constructed based on the geography and materials available in an area. Thus in this area, the wall was made of clay. There was also a great model that showed the wall and fort and how it provided a great defence as no one would have been able to cross through the valley. We got on the golf cart again and it drove us to a suspension bridge that crossed a river. They are building the area into a big ...

Waking up at 5.30 in the train is not so pleasant but we are rewarded by a beautiful sunrise over a flat desert backed by the snow-capped mountains of the 5-6,000 metre Qilian Shan. Jiayuguan is completely new city, built in the 1950s to service a new steel plant and the nearby satellite launch facility - sadly strictly off limits to us, but a lot of our fellow passengers disembark there.
