As the longest and earliest man-made wall in the world, the Great Wall is the precious heritage of all the human being and considered to the one the TOP 7 Wonders in the ancient time in the world. The Great Wall was the important military defense project in ancient China which consists of a wall, watchtowers, pavilion, etc. Its history dates back to the West Zhou Dynasty, over 2000 years. In the Qin Dynasty, Emperor Qinshihuang unified the country, connected and repaired the walls which were built by other 6 kingdoms as a whole wall. Hence it was named as “The Great Wall”. During the Qin, Han, and Ming dynasties, all extended the wall over 5000 km. If we add all the ancient walls which were built in the past 2000 years, it’s believed that the total length is more than 50,000 km.

Jinshanling Great Wall is the name given to the wall situated on the Jinshan Mountains. Its earliest section was built in the 6th Century but most of what you see now also dates from the Ming Dynasty. The walkway along the top is paved with square bricks providing a level surface wide enough to construct batteries. Poems and tablet writings can be found here, left from the time General Qi Jiguang directed building of this section of the Great Wall. Barrier walls were built leading to the enemy to protect the towers. Some of the towers were storerooms for food, hay and weapons.In 1378 (the 11th year of Emperor Hongwu’s reign in the Ming Dynasty), General Xu Da ordered this section of the Great Wall rebuilt. Lunch will be served with snacks, fruit, water as there is no restaurant available during the hiking.
