Ko & Will at the Great Wall

It's more than 2000 years old, but the Great Wall of China remains one of the great wonders of the world, an engineering feat rarely matched in the 22 centuries since its construction began. Stretching 4500 miles from the mountains of Korea to the Gobi Desert, it was first built to protect an ancient Chinese empire from marauding tribes from the north. But it evolved into something far greater a boon to trade and prosperity and ultimately a symbol of Chinese ingenuity and will. Located about 120 kilometers northeast of Beijing, this part of the Wall at Simatai has not been rebuilt or restored. It was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD).
