Jiumenkou Great Wall, Huludao Shi, Liaoning Sheng, China
Nine miles from Shanhaiguan Pass, in Suizhong County, Liaoning province the grand wall spans the about 100-meter wide Jiujiang River. It is the Jiumenkou Great Wall. This section of Great Wall was first built in Northern Qi Dynasty and was an important military pass over a long period of time.
It was rebuilt to a larger scale in the Ming Dynasty. The southern end of the wall starts from lofty mountains, connecting to the section of the wall running from Shanhaiguan Pass. It climbs along the mountain ridge till finally arriving at the banks of Jiujiang River. The wide river doesn’t stop the wall’s resolute pace forward. A huge wall bridge stretches over the river, forcing its way to the north
