Laolongtou ( Old Dragon Head)

Four kilometers south of Shanhaiguan, Laolongtou is the easternmost end of the Great Wall, which stretches 23 meters into the sea like a dragon drinking water, hence its name.

Laolongtou ( Old Dragon Head)

During the Opium War (1840), British and French’s warships were active in the Laolongtou area. The Qing government assembled large forces in Laolongtou for provide defense from attack from the sea, but their efforts proved to be in vain because later in 1900 the Eight-Nation Alliance invaded and destroyed all important defensive buildings and Shenghailou, the most beautiful pavilion of Laolongtou. They drove out the locals and stationed their army in Laolongtou area. It wasn’t until World War Two that they left this area.
