Ok I can answer 3. The wall was made of packed earth. Then a layer of stone. The wall is 30ft tall. Messages were sent in day by smoke and at night fire. The messages traveled along towers until they reached the capital.

this looks like a damaged wall.

Yes but imagine what it looked like 2,000 years ago.

Hi Brittany,
Are you kidding? You mean walk the Badaling Great Wall in Beijing or the whole Great Wall in China? Badaling is easy for you to walk, only taking several hours; but if you mean the whole Great Wall measuring 6,700 kilometers (4,163 miles), it's hard to caculating the time. It's up to your speed! Last year, a young couple from Britain had walked the Great Wall using 167 days. :)

Your probably right. If you tried to you'd have to be in your best shape.

Is there any way of getting to any part of the Great Wall in Beijing by subway? We don't mind a walk of a mile or so. Thanks!

Is it true that the men that built the Great Wall were burried in the wall?

Hi, Emily
Thanks for your question.
We should say that this kind of saying is not true. But there were indeed tens of thousands of men died during the construction work. That is why there was Meng Jiangnu's Bitter Weeping.

Thanks for visiting beijingtrip.com!

this is the most amazing thing i have ever seen in my entire life and this is a very big wall in the world. I bet no one could ever climb the whole thing in the maximum of 2 hours. Thats just Imposible. Well unless you were running then thats different from walking. Well I have to Go ttul8r. Peace. TTUL8R means talk to you later. Bye

I just read :Alone on the Great Wall" by William Lindsay. published in 1968. He lives in China now with his Chinese wife
& two children. He has written
another book about the Great Wall. I strongly recommend people to read his books.
