Juyongguan Pass located inside Changping County, more than 50kms away from Beijing City. It is one of the three greatest passes of the Great Wall of China, and the other two passes are Jiayuguan Pass in the west and Shanhaiguan in the east.

Just 75km North-west of Beijing, along a smooth and comfortable highway is the Badaling Section of the Great Wall, which is one of the best-preserved and most accessible sections. The Great Wall is an internationally admired structure, symbolic of the cruelty of the ancient rulers, and the stoicism and determination of the Chinese people. The construction of the Great Wall began in the 5th century BC.

Huangyaguan Pass runs on the ridge of mountains to the North of Ji County, Tianjin. It was initially built in Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577) and later renovated and lengthened in Sui Dynasty (581-618) and again during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Antique, grand, steep and graceful, and Huangyaguan Great Wall is regarded as an 'Impregnable Pass' in Tianjin. This section is the longest restored section of the Great Wall with a length of 3,052 meters (about 3337 yards).

Jinshanling Great WallAs we know, there are five sections of the Great Wall around Beijing which are officially open to the public - Badaling Section, Juyongguan Section, Mutianyu Section, Jinshanling Section and Simatai Section, among which Jinshanling and Simatai are famous for their rugged steep inclines and offer fun climbing.

Hiking from the East end of Jinshanling Great Wall to the place near Simatai Great Wall (this section is on rebuilding) is more challenging than hiking on other sections of the Great Wall. During the 12-kilometer hike, we will pass 15 towers along East Jinshanling and 15 towers along West Simatai, as well as two of the three passes on the Jinshanling.

Mutianyu Great Wall was first built in the mid-6th century during the Northern Qi, making it older than the Badaling section.  It is connected with Jiankou in the west and Lianhuachi and Jinshanling in the east. In 1569, the Mutianyu Great Wall was rebuilt, mainly with granite and is one of the best-preserved sections with the largest construction scale and best quality among all sections of Great Wall, being 7-8 meters high and 4-5 meters wide with 22 watchtowers on this 2,250-meter-long section. It served as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs.
