It isn’t sufficiently wide for five steeds side by side
Well it is, yet just on a few segments around Beijing which were worked as both divider and street. Different parts of the Ming divider, strikingly the edge that keeps running over the pinnacles of Simatai, are just sufficiently wide for a solitary individual. Westwards there is frequently no walkway. Ponies and officers needed to walk along the Wall’s base.
Marco Polo did in reality observe it
Genuine, Marco never referenced it, which has been utilized as a contention that he never went to China. At the time (in the late thirteenth century) all China was governed by the Mongols, so the divider had been excess since the intruders crushed north China under Genghis Khan more than 50 years sooner. The Mongols, who had overlooked the Wall in war, had no compelling reason to make reference to it in harmony. Marco more likely than not crossed it a few times on his voyages from Beijing to Kublai Khan’s royal residence in Xanadu (Shangdu), yet had no motivation to take any notice of it.
