China restores Great Wall’s western end

US$ 319 million project includes “world cultural heritage theme park”

A huge project has got underway to patch up the deteriorating western end of the Great Wall. Costing the equivalent of US$ 319 million, the project in northwest China’s Gansu province will also include the construction of a “world cultural heritage theme park and a heritage inspection centre”.
This part of the wall runs through the city of Jiayuguan, including the Jiayu Pass, and was originally built during the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). The Gansu project follows similar reconstruction and upgrading of tourist facilities the Badaling area north of Beijing (2009) and in Liaoning province along the border between China and North Korea (2010).
