The Great Wall of China, the longest wall in the world that stands tall at 5 to 8 metres at a length of 21,196.18 km, is a winding path over rugged mountains. Located in northern China, it is made up of stone, brick, wood and other material, and was built to prevent invasions from northern nations. The wall depicts China's ancient history and culture and is proof of the nation's architecture and creativity. Ever since it has been opened as a tourist attraction, tourists throng to it every day. The Badaling section is visited by as many as 70,000 people every day.
Erected to protect its people and territories from nomadic invasions, The Great Wall of China is a grandiose series of fortifications that have been propagating legends from generation to generation. From mythical creatures to mighty soldiers that are said to have fought wars on its structure, the Great Wall is considered one of the Greatest Wonders of the World, radiating beauty and loyalty to a country that never forgets its people. Come and experience the breeze of magnificence, folkloristic anecdotes and ancient protective tactics that have kept the Empire safe for just about hundreds of years. Extending its majestic structure from east to west of China, the Great Wall is much like a fierce dragon that swerves up and down across the immense sea of trees that characterizes the beautiful land around it.
