  • Photos! Dashuigou (大水沟)

    One of many short stretches of wall within Helanshan. Hidden inside the gully it is not possible to see from the outside but Google Earth is a great help to find places like this.

    The sign call this West Great Wall (西长城), not suprising since this is the western side of Ningxia.

    It's a short wall - only about 300 meter - but with four towers.

    A very beautiful location.


    The wall is well preserved with even the parapets preserved.

    There might have been some kind of river gate between the first tower and the south side if the gully.

    The structure of the wall is very clear and well preserved.

    It is not very clear when looking at Google Earth but there are two clear signal towers further inside the gully (the second one on the ridge in the background).

          It seems the well made of soil.
          endure years of raining and blowing
          And it still exists.

          The scene is so light, you should wear sunglass
