Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is among the world’s most famous landmarks and also believed to be one of the most haunted locations in the world. 

Construction of the wall started around 7th century BC, the first wall was believed to have been built by the Chu State and throughout history other states and dynasties have added to it, building their own walls, from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west.  China’s first comprehensive measurement of its Great Wall started in 2007 and completed in 2012 shows it to be 13,170 miles long – thousands of miles longer than previous estimates over 6,700km in total. 

Over the course of its construction an estimated 1-2 million people died building The Great Wall.

Unsurprisingly many travellers have reported seeing apparitions walking the wall or hearing the sound of marching footsteps but seeing no people. 

Some tourists complain of sudden uneasiness, illnesses such as nausea, headaches and body pains. Others have reported being physically assaulted, grabbed, punched and slapped by an unseen force. Local legend states “If you visit the Great Wall, the spirits of the fallen workers will haunt you until you cross a line of firecrackers to scare them away”.

Many of the ghost stories focus on a part of the wall north of Beijing known as The Wild Wall. Recently, several hikers died along this portion of the wall. 

Those deaths were attributed to fatal falls and lightning strikes, but not everyone believes the reports.
