The Great Wall of China. The Great Wall runs more than 13,000 miles—the distance by plane from New York to Beijing and back. In Chinese, it’s called changcheng, literally “long wall.” Over thousands of years these walls have been destroyed, rebuilt, maintained, and extended; much of the wall you see today dates to the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644). A handful of sections of the Great Wall are accessible from Beijing.
