|This portion of the wall is said to be a favourite for photographers, and it is easy to see why once here. In the snowy month of January, the surrounding mountains are beautiful. The wall rises and falls with the landscape for as far as you can see and evokes a feeling of vastness that is perhaps equal to this country’s history and culture.|
