Hushan Great Wall
Hushan Great Wall (Chinese: 虎山长城; pinyin: Hǔshān chángchéng) is the most easterly known part of the Great Wall of China. About 600 metres of remains were excavated here in 1989. In 1992, a section of wall was renovated and is open to the public, forming a popular tourist attraction. The wall runs for about 1,200 metres over Hushan (Tiger Mountain).
The wall starts 15 km northeast of Dandong city, directly beside the China–North Korea border. It then climbs steeply up to a height of 146.3 metres before descending on the other side of Hushan and finishing at a car park. Historically, Dandong was a settlement established to protect the Chinese heartland from attacks from Koreans during the late Ming and early Qing dynasties.
