Great Wall is crumbling

Great Wall is crumbling


A damaged section of the Great Wall in Laiyuan

Parts of China's famous Great Wall are being damaged by illegal mining for minerals.

At one remote section in the Laiyuan county of Hebei, the wall has completely crumbled after fly-by-night operators stole reserves of iron, copper, molybdenum and nickel, buried along a 150km stretch of the famous landmark.

A survey has revealed more than 80 per cent of the Great Wall in Hebei is in bad shape due to tourism and inappropriate infrastructure, reported people.com.cn.

But it is illegal mining that has caused the most damage.

"We have no idea how many enterprises are engaged in the mining along the Great Wall site," said Guo Jianyong - an engineer from the Hebei provincial ancient architecture protection institution.

"The cultural heritage department has no knowledge of the specific information on the passages in the mining, either."

Guo said the government should play a more active role in protecting the Great Wall.

"Because of the remote locations and the length of the Great Wall, its protection needs the attention and support from the local government."

"We suggest that more personnel be deployed and more financial assistance be given,"

Re: Great Wall is crumbling

It is hard to control and maintain the Great Wall, due to its size

Many parts are gone now because of the materials used to built them have eroded. The current standing one was built in Ming Dynasty

Some people don't appreciate history. If it's this irresponsible act continue, Great Wall of China will be out of the 7 Wonder list.

Re: Great Wall is crumbling

Oh my.. they should start checking/monitoring the wall because that might be dangerous for tourists. They should also start doing maintenance on it because it's part of China's history, people know them for that 'Great Wall'

Maintenance ? Later the funds used for maintenance are taken by those corrupted officials...

Re: Great Wall is crumbling

Great Wall of China is too difficult to manage as it ranges through so many provinces and county, I went to Mutianyu Great Wall, everything was still very nice, one should go there and have a look in their lifetime.

Re: Great Wall is crumbling

It's ironic that such a national and cultural treasure is being destroyed by people who seek their own kind of treasure. I agree that the illegal mining should stop, but people are going to steal if they can get away with it. You can't police the world.

Re: Great Wall is crumbling

I would love to see and walk on parts of the Great Wall of China. I know it will be many years in the future before I can ever afford to travel there, so I hope it lasts a long, long time.
