Lonely Planet review for Jūyōngguān
First constructed in the 5th century, rebuilt by the Ming and more recently restored, Jūyōngguān was considered one of the most strategically significant parts of the Wall. This is the closest section of wall to Běijīng, but it has been over-renovated, so little authenticity remains. Usually quiet, the steep and somewhat strenuous circuit can be done in under two hours.
