Great wall of China is safe or not?
 
The Great Wall of China is a military defense barrier along the previous northern border of China. The Great Wall consists of many different walls which were built, rebuilt, connected, and extended at different times and using different construction techniques. In 2002 the China Great Wall Academy conducted a 45 day survey of the wall and visited over 100 sites in total. Their results showed that over 70% of the wall is in such disrepair that it is no longer safe for walkers and so those wishing to trek the length of the wall have to leave the structure at various points and trek through the mountains, grasslands and plateaus that surround the ruined parts, well the the most popular section of the wall includes an optional segment with over 5000 steps up to the summit and although climbing the Great Wall of China is a feat in itself, hundreds of visitors do it everyday. In fact, over 1500 people join in the Great Wall of China Marathon each year - a race that includes climbing the 5164 steps before going down the other side.

100 % its safe !According to the history books of China the Great Wall began life as a series of separate walls that were designed to protect individual Chinese states. It was only when Emperor Qin Shihuang, the first emperor of the the Qin Dynasty, came to power that the walls were joined to create the Great Wall that still stands today. Most of the wall that is still usable was built at a much later date during the Ming Dynasty and the differences in culture and architecture can clearly been seen.

Thanks

The Great Wall is composed of many different walls that were built, rebuilt, extended and linked to different times and with different construction techniques. In 2002, China Great Wall Academy has conducted a survey of 45 days from the wall and visited more than 100 seats in total. Their results showed that over 70% of the wall is on the decline, it is safer for walkers and so those who want to hike along the wall to leave the structure at various points and Hiking through the mountains, prairies and plateaus surrounding the parties in ruins, and the most popular part of the wall includes an optional segment with more than 5000 stairs to the top, and even climbing the Great Wall China is a feat in itself, hundreds of visitors do every day.
