Fenghuang Southern Great Wall
2016-12-21 11:06:20  Zhangjiajie Tourism Information Website  

The Southern Great Wall is 10 kilometers away from Fenghuang(Phoenix) Ancient City. It was in April 2,000 that archaeologists discovered more than 190 kilometers of ancient wall, whose structural and military systems were the same as those of the northern Great Wall. Experts confirm that it is part of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall built to defend the kingdom against the Miao people of the south.The wall is about 3 meters high and its basement is about 2 meters wide. It revolves around mountains and cuts across water. The most part of it is built on the precipitous ridges. There are more than 800 whistle terraces, gun emplacements, blockhouses, and outposts used for stationing troops and defending. At that time, often there is a troop of 4,000 to 5,000 soldiers. Now two sections of the wall are still standing: one is in Liaojiaqiao Town and the other in Jixing Town. The section in Liaojiaqiao Town has been renovated 1,780 meters for visitors to appreciate.

Transport: Shuttle buses from Fenghuang Ancient City to here are available.
