Jiankou Great Wall 箭扣長城

Jiankou is a section of the Great Wall of China. This section is a photographic hotspot due to its unique style, steep mountains and beautiful scenery. 'Jiankou', is translated as 'Arrow Nock' in English, for the shape of the mountain is like an arrow, with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock.

Badaling Great Wall, China by TC Chua, on Flickr

The Great Wall of China, an extensive bulwark erected in ancient China, is one of the largest building-construction projects ever undertaken. The Great Wall actually consists of numerous walls—many of them parallel to each other—built over some two millennia across northern China and southern Mongolia. The most extensive and best-preserved version of the wall dates from the Ming dynasty (1368–1644) and runs for some 5,500 miles (8,850 km) east to west from Mount Hu near Dandong, southeastern Liaoning province, to Jiayu Pass west of Jiuquan, northwestern Gansu province. This wall often traces the crestlines of hills and mountains as it snakes across the Chinese countryside, and about one-fourth of its length consists solely of natural barriers such as rivers and mountain ridges. Nearly all of the rest (about 70 percent of the total length) is actual constructed wall, with the small remaining stretches constituting ditches or moats. Although lengthy sections of the wall are now in ruins or have disappeared completely, it is still one of the more remarkable structures on Earth. The Great Wall was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Large parts of the fortification system date from the 7th through the 4th century BC. In the 3rd century BC Shihuangdi (Qin Shihuang), the first emperor of a united China (under the Qin dynasty), connected a number of existing defensive walls into a single system. Traditionally, the eastern terminus of the wall was considered to be Shanhai Pass (Shanhaiguan) in eastern Hebei province along the coast of the Bo Hai (Gulf of Chihli), and the wall’s length—without its branches and other secondary sections—was thought to extend for some 4,160 miles (6,700 km). However, government-sponsored investigations that began in the 1990s revealed sections of wall in Liaoning, and aerial and satellite surveillance eventually proved that this wall stretched continuously through much of the province. The greater total length of the Ming wall was announced in 2009.

Dushikou Greatwall, located Hebei Province, China.
http://www.lvwo.com/bbs/viewthread.p...e%3D1#pid86849

獨石口,位於河北赤城縣北,是明長城宣府鎮上的一座重要關口,有“上谷之咽喉,京師之右臂”之稱,因關口處有一座拔地而起的孤石,因此而得名。

Shoukoubao ruined Greatwall, located Shanxi Province.
http://www.lvwo.com/bbs/viewthread.p...e%3D1#pid86851


守口堡  明長城大同鎮關口堡。位於山西省陽高縣境內。據史載,為明嘉靖二十五年(1546)年設,隆慶六年(1572)磚包,城周“一里二百二十步,高三丈五尺。”只城東有一門,明時在此駐守備,分守長城“十三里,邊墩二十三座,火路墩四座”。明隆慶年間俺答汗部由此入犯,曾使大同全鎮告急。今城堡已毀。長城由守口堡至鎮宏堡,人為破壞較少,地勢稍有起伏。

Guangwu - ruins of the Greatwall -3

廣武城兩側的山上蜿蜒著只剩夯土的長城,長城上的包磚哪兒去了?據當地老鄉介紹,是陸續被當地人拆下來蓋房、壘豬圈了,尤其是上世紀70年代國家大修防空洞,附近各村都有任務。當時有一條公路直達山頂,社員們開著大汽車上山去拉長城的磚修'地下長城'。

Yangbian Greatwall 样边长城 -2

真正的樣邊長城總長約3KM,之所以叫樣邊長城,據說明代修築長城時把這段長城作為樣板,把各地負責修築長城的人請來參觀,所以說這段長城是明​​長城修建時的試點和样板工程。不過其果然名副其實,最後那段3KM的樣榜工程修得非常堅固和漂亮,明顯與其他地方的不同。
