The Great Disappearing Wall of China

发布日期:10-25-2015

Visitors walk near a section of the Great Wall of China.
Visitors walk near a section of the Great Wall of China.

The vast majority of the Great Wall of China is badly protected and suffers from erosion and vandalism.

Most of the wall is in poor condition. Research shows that 74 percent of it is badly protected.

The wall stretches thousands of miles across northern China. It attracts tens of thousands of tourists each year. Near cities like Beijing, the wall is maintained. In rural areas, it is not maintained and is quickly eroding.

Rain, drought and wind contribute to cavities and cracks in the wall.

The Chinese government has issued regulations to protect the wall in urban and rural areas, says the Beijing local government.
