  • Photos! Nankou Great Wall towers

    The closest fortifications to Beijing that I know of, not including Beijing city walls, are at Nankou. In addition to the Nankou city wall remains, there is a tower on each side of the Badaling Expressway.

    I took these photos from buses going between Beijing and Badaling. Unfortunately I was never able to get a decent photo of the west side tower due to weather.

    One of the things I plan to do on my next trip to China is to try to climb up to and investigate each of these two towers. They seem to be basically undocumented despite their highly visible location.
