The majestic Great Wall of China is the greatest ancient military fortification in the world and has been listed in the World Heritage by UNESCO since 1987. Starting from Shanhaiguan Pass in Liaoning Province to Jiayuguan Pass in Gansu Province, Great Wall winds through the mountain and desert areas of northern China from east to west.
It is recorded that construction of the wall began in the Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC - 476 BC) in China's history. By defeating other six warring states, Emperor Qin Shi Huang unified the country and built up the first dynasty in China's feudal society, the Qin (221 BC - 206 BC). To consolidate the defense of the northern border, the emperor sent, Meng Tian, a famous Qin general to connect the incomplete wall structures of the previous six states and build a continuous wall construction.
The ancient Qin wall has experienced continuous extensions and restorations throughout the 2,000-year history of Chinese feudal society. Two construction campaigns in the Han (206 BC - 220) and Ming (1368 - 1644) dynasties brought about the remarkable extensions to the wall. The present wall remains in Beijing are mainly the result of the Ming period.
The wall sections in Beijing include Badaling, Jinshanling, Mutianyu, Simatai, Huanghuacheng, Jiankou and others. Among them the best-preserved Badaling Great Wall is the most popular choice for tourists. In China, there is a saying that the man who has not been to the wall is not a real man. The Great Wall is the symbol of China, the spirit of the nation and an object of pride for the Chinese people.
