The city of Jiayuguan has become particularly well known as the location of the Jiayu Pass, the best preserved and biggest of the passes of the Great Wall of China. The focus of tourism in Jiayuguan lies almost solely on the fortifications of this intact stretch of the Great Wall, with forts, towers, and beacons to explore and admire on a number of established walks. Museums host exhibits dedicated to the history of this portion of the wall and the wall in general, allowing visitors to better understand the gargantuan effort undertaken to guard the country over the centuries.
