Jiankou Great Wall Maps 2024: Location, Transportation, Tourist

Jiankou Great Wall is Not Open for Tourists:

The Beijing Great Wall Protection and Management Regulations clearly state that it is prohibited to organize tours or climb sections of the Great Wall that have not been approved for visitation. Violators may be subject to corresponding fines. The Jiankou Great Wall is an unopened section of the Great Wall, and climbing it can cause damage to the structure. This not only hinders the preservation of the Great Wall but also poses significant risks to the safety of visitors. Therefore, we urge everyone not to climb the Jiankou Great Wall. Tourists can visit and hike at well-developed sections of the Great Wall such as Mutianyu, Badaling, and Jinshanling instead.

Jiankou, in Chinese, refers to arrow nock, and the W-shaped Great Wall is named for its similar figure of an arrow. It is one of the most steep, wild and dangerous sections of the Great Wall built in the Ming Dynasty (1348-1644AD), with serious natural weathering and no artificial renovation since then, and Mutianyu Great Wall is only 10km to the east.
