  • Photos! Back side of Wohushan

    When you reach the top of Wohushan, you see that there is more wall on its back side ▽


    View from the tower (seen in the picture above) looking west ▽


    Looking back (looking east from its west) ▽


    Continuing the wall westward ▽




    Looking back again ▽




    On the right hand side, there is a spur wall going north ▽


    Following the spur wall ▽




    Looking back from the spur wall ▽




    The end of the spur wall ▽


    Returning from the spur wall (going south again) ▽




    Looking east after coming back from the spur wall. Wohushan is in the background ▽


    Looking west. You can see that the wall continues on the other side of the valley ▽


    The next pictures is taken from the other side of the valley looking east. The wall drops steep into the valley. Wohushan can be seen in the far distance ▽


    On this (western) side of the valley, you can find some nice towers ▽

      Wow, nice weather and good pictures.
      Did you notice the Bei Qi walls around?

      chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
      chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
      chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.

        I noticed them, but did not have a detailed look at them.

          If you climb up to the very top of the hill in your first picture, above the highest intact tower, there's a beacon tower there too.

          The open question I think is whether the ridgeline to the right in that picture really does have a Bei Qi wall on it. I meant to go see one day...and then I had a kid. Maybe you can take a look up there next time!
          If you're tired of the Great Wall, you're tired of life.

            Unfortunately, I was not able to get a better picture.

              Very nice, thanks for sharing. May I ask where did you access this section? Was it from Liushuigou/Gangou village on the north side of Wohushan or further along west?

                I've accessed the section from Po Chengzi (from the south).
