Getting to Juyongguan Great Wall from Beijing

Getting to Juyongguan Great Wall from Beijing is not difficult as Juyongguan is the closest section to the city. Some tour groups probably switch to Juyongguan from Badaling because it is a little closer and also it’s less crowded than Badaling.

Juyongguan Great Wall review

Unlike Wild Great Wall such as JiankouJinshanlingGubeikou, Juyongguan looks like a complete military castle with many steps along the way to the top on either side. The predominant feature of Juyongguan is the steepness. You really have to raise your legs to climb each step of the way.

As higher you are climbing the less people you will see. The steps are wide enough for the amount of people climbing –  if you have a heart problem or high blood pressure you may need to think about it.

If it’s too much of a challenge for you to climb the southern section, north eastern section of the Wall that goes across the river is a little less steep and not crowded. Both sections offer terrific views. You may prefer the quieter north eastern section. You won’t see loads of souvenir stalls as you get to see in Badaling. Be sure to get your running or walking shoes on.

Getting to Juyongguan by car

Getting to Juyongguan by bus

Going this way would add to the sense of adventure (subway plus bus). You need to change stations and find bus stops, go over read the signs, take a couple of minutes to digest where you are. There are two routes to choose from:

Route 1:

Take the Subway Line 13 at either Dongzhimen Station or Xizhimen Station and get off at Longze Station, take the shuttle bus No.68 (the bus is marked 昌68) and you will reach Juyongguan Pass. Bus No.68 is parked on the opposite side of Longze Station. Don’t worry which directly bus No.68 goes because that’s its first station.
