Have a historical Beijing tour of Juyongguan Great Wall, which is the most famous and best-preserved wall in China. Juyongguan Pass is situated in a valley named "Guangou" as long 20 kilometes, which is within Changping District over 50 kilometers north from downtown Beijing. It is one of the three most famous passes of Great Wall in China. The other two passes are Shanhai Pass and Jiayuguan Pass. JuYongGuan rises steeply each side of a fortified gate that crosses a river. There is a temple and other attractions close by JuYongGuan Great Wall also features some life-size Terracotta Warriors.
JuYongGuan Pass was connected into the Great Wall of China during the Northern and Southern Dynasties period. What we see today was initially built during the Ming dynasty and it received much renovation later. It is a very strategically important place connecting inner China with the area near the northern border. Juyongguan used to be an ancient military town full of military installations, watch towers, official residences, temples, and other structures.
It will be an incredible experience not only to see but to hike one of the wonders of the world. Depending on the side you pick, it will be a very steep hike. Be careful if you are afraid of heights and take it one step at a time. Once you reach the highest point, the views will feel like it was all worth it. There are many uneven steps so I highly recommend wearing proper shoes for the climb. This was the nearest pass closest to Beijing. If you plan on going to this site book with a tour that will give you at least half a day to spend here. Climbing to each pass takes time. Not recommended for people with bad knees or afraid of heights. Steps can be really steep. But what an awesome view!
