The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China

Today we visited the part of the Great Wall named Mutianyu. In its entirety, the Great Wall winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 5,500 miles from east to west of China.

The Mutianyu Great Wall winds 1.4 miles through lofty mountains and high ridges, many sections of which are made of granite. The unique structure makes the wall almost indestructible. It measures 23 to 26 feet high and four to five yards wide.

It is rumoured that  once the wall was finished, all those working on it were executed to protect it’s secrets, and those who died during the construction were used as extra materials to build the wall.
