Beijing to Shanghai Sights

Jiumenkou Great Wall (Jiǔmnkǒu chángchéng)

  • Zhijiu Xian
  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Fodor's Review

Further from town than the Jiaoshan Great Wall, Jiumenkou is notable as the only section of of the Great Wall to ford a river. Clamber up the battlements for dramatic views over the countryside. Jiumenkou is about 15 km (9 miles) north of Shanhaiguan; ask your taxi driver to wait for you for the return trip (a total of about Y80).
