Jiaoshan Great Wall (Jiāoshān chángchéng)

Jiaoshan Great Wall (Jiāoshān chángchéng) Review

One way to leave behind the crowds at the First Gate Under Heaven is to scale the wall as it climbs Jiao Mountain, about 3 km (2 miles) from the city. The first part has been fitted with handrails and ladders up the sides of the watchtowers, but you can keep climbing until you reach the "real" wall. After that you can take a path through trees that leads to the Qixian Monastery. A chairlift operates in high season. Jiaoshan is a 10-minute taxi ride from Shanhaiguan.
