Juyong Pass of Great Wall, Beijing

Great Wall · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
Part of the strategic Great Wall of China, Juyong Pass of Great Wall remains a rare, well-preserved example of the impregnable solid barrier that once protected the capital's Old City. Serving as a military stronghold throughout history, the 4.142-meter (13,589 ft) circular pass rests in the 18 km (11 mi) long Guangou Valley surrounded by mountains on two sides. In the middle of the pass, examine the Cloud Platform, a white marble structure with reliefs of four heavenly gods and sutra scriptures carved in its walls. Stairs can get very slippery during rain, so check the weather forecast to avoid the bad conditions, and always carry snacks and extra water during your exploration.

  • A must see place, I am happy to been here many times!
  • Not to be missed tourists attraction and historical too. Journey may take a while but still worth it. Brings you back to the past glory of the Chinese Palace happenings. Well preserved and maintained for generations to come. You have to be here at least once in your life time. Awesome!
  • This was my second visit, my wife's third. Spectacular achievement. A transformational place. We enjoyed talking with the other tourists.
  • Beautiful scenery and very impressive how hard to construct the great wall
  • Short trip from Bejing, orderly parking lot. The right side of the wall is a bit easier than the left side. The steps are different heights so it's difficult for anyone who has weak legs or hip issue. Bartering is the key for souvenir's.
