Hukeng (Chinese: 湖坑) is a town (a township-level division) situated in Yongding County, Longyan, Fujian, China.[1]

A large number of Fujian Tulou are located with the territory administratively included within Hukeng, with a few within the actual Hukeng Town area; in particular, administratively, Hukeng includes the valley of the Nanxi (南溪, "South Creek"), where several villages (Yangduo, Xinnan, Nanzhong, Nanjiang, Shijia) consisting mostly of tulou form what some writers have dubbed the "Nanxi Great Wall of Tulou".
