Great Wall Overview
 
The Great Wall of China is an awe-inspiring feat of ancient defensive architecture. It is the world’s longest wall and biggest ancient architecture. The Chinese Great Wall winds its way from west to east: across deserts, over mountain peaks, deep into ravines till at last it reaches the sea. As one of the Eight Wonders in the world, the Great Wall of China has become the symbol of the Chinese nation and its culture.

The oldest parts of the Great Wall of China are eroding from wind, water, tourists and even sheep. Still, the Great Wall is an incredible sight to see, and also learn about.

Today the Great Wall has become a place of interest not only to the Chinese but to people from all over the world. Many of them have come to know the famous Chinese saying"He who does not reach the Great Wall is not a true man."
