I cant write on my experience on the great wall without first giving an overview of the great wall.
UNESCO enlisted the Great wall os china as one of the greatest wonders of the world, in the world heritage in 1987. It was originally built in the spring, autumn and warring state periods as a defensive fortification by the three states: Yan, Zhao and Qin. Just like a gigantic dragon, the great wall winds up and down across deserts, grassland,mountains and plateaux stretching approximately 6,700 kilometres. (4,163 mile) from east to west of china. With a history of more than 2000 years, some of the sections of the great wall are now in ruins or have completely disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions around the world owing to its appealing architectural grandeur and historic significance.
The great wall went through cconstant repairs and extension in later dynasties. In fact, it began as independent walls for differnet states when it was first built and did not become great until the Qin dynasty. emperor Qin Shihuang succeeded in his effort to get the wall oined together in his effort to fend off the invasion from the Huns in the north after the Unification of China. Since then, the Great wall has served as a monumen t of chinese nation throughout history. A visit to the grat wall is like a tour through the history backwards; it brings great tourist attraction in each step of the wall.
The great wall has been incorporated into the chinese mythology and popular symbolism. The most popular of several legends is the collapse of a section of the wall caused by Meng Jiangnu who cried bitterly over the death of her husband in the construction of the great wall.
The legend has been spread widely through textbooks, folk songs and traditional operas. it is well known in china
Stepping through thee great wall was for me like a lifetime achievement. I saw the zealous and collective effort of a people that shared the same aspiration of fortifying their city against attacks. Walking on top of this wall could be tedious as one's legs could pain enormously but in my view, it is worth it
