What people are saying:

transportation As it's been mentioned by other travellers, it's quite easy to get there by bus from Fenghuang city or Tongren (the Wall is between the cities). But it won't be so easy to get back from the Wall as it was in my case I've visited this "Great Wall" in the last day of my Tongren journey. So after this place I was thinking this would be easy to get to the airport. So naive I was. No buses, no taxi drivers around. I walked to the highway and wanted to hail one of the passing by cars. Spent around 40 minutes on the road side without any result. Locals didn't even know there was an airport in Tongren, they thought if its name is Fenghuang (Eng. Phoenix) airport then it should be nearby the Fenghuang city, which in the opposite direction from where it actually was. So I gave up asking local people on how to get out of that place, just started hailing the cars. Finally I got a family who wanted to help, but they also didn't know they had an airport in their city. They gave me a lift, though they used an online navigator to get to the right place. So be prepared for this kind of things when you're going to that Wall. P.S. it is not so spectacular as an original Great Wall of China. It will take up to 20-30 minutes to explore all the available surroundings. It will cost you 40 RMB and a lot of stress on how to find a way back to the city.

    Beautiful old-town architecture

    Theis was a former military lookout and base. Step staircase to the upper level. Nice bronze statues depicting what life was like. Nice valley views from atop.

    Renamed Southern Great Wall now. The stairs are no joke. Beautiful and fun place.

    The photo shows Fenghuang, which is wrong. We decided to take some time off Fenghuang to come here since we already traveled so far south, why not see the Southern Great Wall? Besides, my friends a...

    This is such a quaint town of Fenghuang. Came here on a day drip from Zhanajiajie, absolutely stunning but unfortunately you need to pay into half of the town, which we did not, still beautiful.

    Spend time to absorb the surroundings

    Spend time - it is a must. Ignore the peddlars. Just sit at the river bank, buy a cup of nice local tea to sip and watch the world go by!

Additional Information


The Southern Great Wall is also known as the "Miao Jiang Wanli Wall". Built in the Wanli period of the Ming Dynasty, most of it was run through in the territory of Fenghuang County. Perhaps because the military strength of the southern ethnic minorities was not as strong as the northern ethnic minorities, the Southern Great Wall was not built as magnificent as North. Although not as great as the northern Great Wall, the scale is far smaller than the North Great Wall, but it is no less unique with its southern scenery and characteristics of Xiangxi ethnic customs.
