  • Photos! HelanShan Windfarm

    Helanshan Windfarm
    This was the highlight. Here the Ming Wall is in a very poor state and runs parallel to a Qin Wall. Contrary to the Map files, the Ming Wall continues to the North forming a double Qin/Ming wall as well as to the East.
    From the south, the Qin stone wall snakes its way down from the mountain to join the Ming Wall from the east.

    To the east of the Windfarm lies some of the most impressive rammed earth walls I have ever seen at approximtely 50 feet high and 3-5 feet wide and in better condition than in Shandan. Furthermore, it is possible to walk on top of the wall and from the photograph, the upper wall on the ramp still exists.

    Double Qin and Ming GW

    The Ming used the Qin GW as a first line defense!
    This was amazing; walking in between two GWs! The distance between the two was only a few metres.

        How did they make the wall.
        the rammed earth can be as hard as rock.

            For some reasons I don't understand I see this post for the first time. Your photos are outstanding! Great locations photographed. Could you please give the exact locations of your photos?

              Hi Ken,

              Great photos. Don't want to steal your thunder but would like to add and share some more of the walls of Helan Windmill farm.

              Take care.
