The Ancient Great Wall .........

The pass at Juyong is actually quite difficult to find .........

You drive along the main road west from Yanqing and it involves a turn which does not give a marker for the site which is called 'The Ancient Great Wall' rather than the Great Wall. Very little can be gleaned from the internet, but it is definitely there and worth the effort.

You have to look very carefully for a 30cm x 30cm sign and follow a track which becomes confused by road works. Finally you reach an entrance gate and drive to a new car park and ticket office. There are no shops or tacky tourist gift shops.

You then walk up hill for 1.3 KM, so it is quite a pleasant walk, but the irony is that you arrive in another nice but empty car park. OK so far, as there was hardly anyone there and the weather - wonderful.

Oh ......

There is one knick-knack stall for the tourists, but that is it.
