Because of it end wall shape similar with a long dragon which is the head in get into water, they called Laolongtou. On the top of Laolongtou, the visitor allow to climb up to the wall then see the view directly of sea panorama. I think it stairs which Chinese people say as thousand stairs has become main interest there. And now, not only the visitor, even the people can visit it everyday to do usual activity like recreation and exercise in the morning.

When it viewed from above thie Great Wall really looks like dragon with pretty long tails. Accompanied by many green hills winding around, absolutely make the view more beautyful, moreover when see the sun rising. Even when it still covered by morning fog, its beauty is not diminished.
