About Great Wall
Stretching some 20,000 km from the east to the west of China across barren desert, lush grassland, and winding mountain peaks, The Great Wall is an awe-inspiring sight to behold. Dating back more than 2000 years, construction on The Great Wall began under the Qin Dynasty and today is recognised as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and gained status as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. Although unfortunately much of The Great Wall now lies in ruins, one of the best-preserved sections of the wall, known as Badaling, can be found 50 miles north of Beijing and offers travellers a taste of the size and majesty of this impressive architectural feat. The more adventurous at heart can visit more remote regions of the wall, like the isolate Jinshanling Scenic Zone which offers an alternative view of the wall, scattered with elegant watchtowers and fantastic scenery.
