Day Tours to the Great Wall of China

An enduring symbol of Chinese genius, the UNESCO protected Great Wall was built as a defensive structure to protect China against marauding invaders from the north. Although the present wall dates mainly from the Ming dynasty, some 20 states and dynasties were involved in its immense construction over a period of 2,000 years. Snaking some 6,700km across barren hills, deserts, mountains and plateaus, the now partially ruinous Great Wall stretches east to west in northern China. Today a visit offers a healthy, if steep and vertiginous walk with breathtaking views of the Chinese countryside.
