Far from madding crowd on Great Wall

REMOTE sections of the Great Wall of China will open to tourists in northeastern Liaoning Province with a road-building program across mountains.

Yong'an section of the Great Wall in Suizhong County was built about 1381 in the Ming Dynasty. The province plans to integrate several sections of the wall into a bigger tourist attraction with appeal to more travelers, according to web portal

The Yong'an section is one of the most completely preserved sections of the wall and has not been renovated. Because of its location in inaccessible mountains, few tourists have visited it, with fewer than 30,000 sightseers last year.

The more famous Shanhaiguan section of the wall near Beijing attracts 2 million visitors a year.
