Shizuishan itself is made of the Central District of Dawukou, extensive industrial zones north thereof, bordred by an abundantly irragated and cultured strecth of land along the Yellow River, with many farms and small villages.
Jiucai Gou, or Chive Cave Great Wall can be found near the Dawukou District, one of the Three Main Urban Centers of Shizuishan City Prefecture in the North of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. The Jiucaigou Great Wall is situated at about half an hours hike from the Wudang Monastery, which is one of the two main tourist attractions of Dawukou District. Following an old river bed and hiking up a gully one reaches one of the least visited surviving sections of the Great Wall of China today. The Juicaigou Wall is but a short section of wall, much eroded and without its outer layer of stones. There are three watchtowers and only about 50 meters of wall remaining.
The Northern Great Wall was a double-layered wall with the result that several Great Wall sections are identifiable at various locations near Dawukou.

The Great Wall in this area survived reasonably intact, although it was breeched by an earth shattering quake measuring 8.0 on the Richter scale in the year 1731 AD.
