Built in the Ming Dynasty, the Hushan Great Wall is the eastern starting point of the Ming Great Wall. The wall was named for its location at the south foot of the Hushan (Tiger Mountain), in a small village named Hushan in Kuaidian County, Liaoning Province.
Hushan, so named because of its resemblance to a crouching tiger, was of strategic importance in ancient times. It adjoins the roaring Yalu River on the south, faces the Yuchi Island and Yizhou Ancient City in South Korea across the river, and overlooks the Yuan River to the west.
The original wall was heavily damaged by erosion over the centuries. Work has been underway to restore it. The existing wall is around 200 meters long, with three watchtowers.
