Juyong Pass of Great Wall, Beijing

4.5
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.

  • Not long city is not a good Hans, walk through the city to know the great place of the city! In order to realize human's goal, decided to walk the form not to take the 攬 car. It's a bit of a shame to go halfway, but the scenery after the effort is really beautiful! But the steps are a bit high, the walking angle is somewhat close to 90 degrees, and the upper landing has an opportunity to use the hand foot. And remember to erase the sun, the high rays of the sun special hurt people.
