Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China, one of the best ponders of the world, was recorded as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Much the same as a monstrous winged serpent, it twists here and there crosswise over deserts, fields, mountains and levels, extending around 21,196 kilometers from east to west of China.
Having a wonderful Great Wall tour is a must for one’s China trip. Along this super long wall, Beijing ranks the top destination for its proper maintenance of the abundant wall relics of the Ming Dynasty. Badaling and Mutianyu are best sections to see neat and complete walls and beacon towers; while Jinshanling and Simatai offer challenging Great Wall hiking routes with open and wild scenery.
