Jiumenkou Great Wall (Jiǔmnkǒu chángchéng)

Jiumenkou Great Wall (Jiǔmnkǒu chángchéng) 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).
