We will visit Juyongguan Great Wall, Guan means pass in English, Juyongguan is one of the three greatest passes of the Great Wall of China, and Juyongguan Great Wall is the nearest section of the Great Wall to Beijing city. Juyongguan Great Wall is located in an 18 km long valley. It features a white marble 'Cloud Platform' with an arched doorway and an inscribed board above with Chinese characters saying 'the greatest pass in the world'. To the east of the platform, the Great Wall crosses a river, which is one of the rare sights of the wall. To the west of the platform, the Great Wall rises steeply to the top of the mountain. The Juyongguan Great Wall was not as famous as Badaling Great Wall or Mutianyu Great Wall, because it opended to the public later, but Badaling Great Wall is now always very crowded and Mutianyu Great Wall is crowded during the summer holiday and China's National Day holiday, so a growing number of international visitors now choose to visit the Juyongguan Great Wall.
