The present Great Wall extends across a northern area of China   covering approximately 5,500 miles and was declared a World Heritage   Site by UNESCO in 1987 and was voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of   the World in 2007 and must-see for your China travel deals. The wall spans a diverse terrain of mountains, high   plateaus, grasslands and deserts which provides an amazing variety of   scenery along its snaking presence.

Originally erected as a separate series of defense walls against the   nomad raiders from the north during the Qin Dynasty of 221 BC, the Great   Wall was added to, strengthened and connected over the years by several   dynasties with the Ming Dynasty contributing the most to its size from   1388 until 1644. Eventually, the Mongols and other threatening tribes   were conquered and annexed into China causing the abandonment of the   Great Wall as a serious defense.

During Great Wall tours, you can walk along this world architectural   wonder which is 20 feet wide and could accommodate 5 horsemen abreast.   Peer through the archer slits, behold the army-hindering moat, enter the   watch towers and gaze upon the beacon towers which were used to release   smoke signals along its massive stretch as a rallying alarm against   attack.

Because of its great length, there are numerous Great Wall tours   which can be enjoyed along its expanse. Badaling is one of the most   popular as it is one of the best preserved sections and can be included   in top 10 China tour packages from Beijing. The Badaling section winds   like a mythical Chinese dragon through treacherous mountain terrain   which offers incredible views.

Visit the Gubeikou Great Wall which includes the Panlongshan section   where most of China’s historical battles occurred. The Huanghuacheng   section is bathed in yellow wild flowers during springtime, thus   providing its name. From Tianjin which is the famous travel destination for your popular China tours, explore the Huangyaguan Pass. Take   astounding photographs at the Jiankou Great Wall, one of the most scenic   sections. Also consider the Jiayuguan, Jinshanling, Juyongguan,   Mutianyu, Shanhaiguan, Simatai, Yangguan, Yanmenguan, Yumenguan and   Zhenbeitai sections of the Great Wall.

As you can see, travelers desiring to explore the Great Wall of China   in earnest can enjoy many return trips to this world treasure and   encounter a different experience every time. For about others, you can check out China tour guide.
