All reviews steep climb bucket list souvenir shop highest point hand rails both sides afraid of heights coming down well worth the effort take your time watch tower tour group bring water once in a lifetime cable car section wall
Absolutely stunning went to top fortress 12 took 2 hours, not for the faint hearted, very strenuous legs felt like jelly getting to the top but worse coming back down, but was worth it with fantastic views
This is a beautiful, well-maintained section of The Great Wall of China. With all the up and down, walking on it certainly burns energy. The walkways are smooth but tread carefully. Of the 12 fortresses on this section, I visited Fortress No. 12, 13 and...More
Absolutely amazing!!!! You just cannot be disappointed when visiting The Great Wall. This pass has fantastic views. Do mind your step as some of the sections are somewhat steep. You can still take awesome pictures without having to climb all the way to the top...More
The great wall is one of the seven wonders of the old world. Although accessible through various northern chinese states, the Juyong pass is one of the most tourist friendly and scenic parts of the wall to experience. Although parts of the climb are steep...More
We just recently walked Juyong Pass. Over the years we have done both the Great Wall at Mutianyu and Badaling. I have to say Juyong Pass seemed to be harder because it seemed to be steeper with bigger steps than I remember at the other...More
We chose our tour because of the visit to The Great Wall and we were not disappointed. A must for every traveller. We couldn't get over how steep and depth of each step. I find it difficult to imagine climbing and walking any distance on...More
It was a very good place to visit, just got off from Bejing railway station and got line 2 blue color, and got off from Jisitan metro station and took a taxi, it's better to take taxi because but cost about 120 RMB per a...More
I understand that there are several GW access points, however, this was the pass offered on our tour. With that said we loved it. Be prepared to hike up large steps. There are fortresses 8-12 available here, if you can get past fortress 8, the...More
We recently took a tour of China and one of the highlights was climbing the Great Wall of China. It had been on my bucket list to see the wall so it was with excitement that we set out for this part of the Wall...More
We were on an 11 day bus tour that stopped here, after getting reservations the previous day. Even in mid November it was quite crowded but apparently, it is more so in peak season. (There does seem to be a limit as to the number...More
From Chong wen men, take Beijing Subway (Di Tie) Line 2 (either the inner circle or the outer circle, one is 8 stops one is 10 stops) to Xi zhi men, change to subway Line 13 (5 stops) to Xi er qi, then change to subway... More
From Chong wen men, take Beijing Subway (Di Tie) Line 2 (either the inner circle or the outer circle, one is 8 stops one is 10 stops) to Xi zhi men, change to subway Line 13 (5 stops) to Xi er qi, then change to subway Changping Line (9 stops) to Changping. Take Exit A, at Changping Nan Da Jie but stop, take bus 870 or 655 for 3 stops to Deng Zhuang, change to bus 919 or 879, which should take you to Juyongguan Great Wall (information from Beijing Public Transport website, checked on 3 April 2018, don’t think the site has an English version). Hope you will find this useful. Public transport in Beijing has been improved/changed dramatically. New bus lines are opening and old ones are discontinued or combined all the time.

Been to Badaling once and Jurong Pass three times. I found the Jurong Pass part of the wall much easier, quieter and nicer. You can easily walk up to the beginning of the climb and then decide how far you want to go or not go up at all. You still can get some good pictures even at the bottom of the climb. The first time we went to Badaling in 1988, I was so afraid that I would get knock down by the crowds, but not at Jurong Pass. My sister who had a stroke a couple of years back took a few steps on our last trip there (Nov. 2017) and she was happy. Or, if you go to the restrooms there, after you are done, you could just walk over to the wall and then walk down.

It depends on the time of day you visit. We were on a tour and we got up at 4 in the morning to visit the wall. We were there early and it was rather relaxing visit, we then had a coffee at the bottom at about 11 o-clock. As we came down the last couple of hundred meters it got very busy and whilst having the coffee the wall looked like the entrance to a major sporting event.
So if you get there early you can reach the top and back if you are fit, but would not have time to visit the shop at No 10 and defiantly would not be able to take in the views. If you get there later then there is no way.
