  • Meal: B, L, D

After breakfast, head to Jiayuguan Pass. It is situated between the Wenshu and Heishan Mountains at the foot of Jiayuguan Hill of Qilian Mountain. Along with Juyongguan and Shanhaiguan, it is one of the main passes of the Great Wall. With a length of 733 meters and an area about 33,500 square meters, Jiyuguan Pass has tow gates that one on the east side of the pass, and the other on the west side. On each gate there is a building. It consists of three defense lines: an inner city, an outer city and a moat. With the guide's patience, you will recall the scene of the ancient Silk Road caravan passing through the tower to the greatest extent in your mind. It's like going back to ancient times.


Next, drive around 11km to visit the Overhanging Great Wall, It is named "Overhanging Great Wall" because it is built on a 45 degree ridge and looks like magnificent painting hanging over the cliff, which is how it got its name. The overhanging Great Wall is the north extension of Jiayuguan City and an important part of the ancient military defense system of Jiayuguan. It was built in the Ming Dynasty (1539). Today is only 750 metre long, after the restoration in 1987 when gentle steps of the first ruin watchtower and ridge wall were repaired. Strolling along the only four hundred staircases, you can have an eyeful of desolation and vastness. And a touch of oasis will strike you how tenacious life is in the face of adverse natural environment.


Continue your tour to The First Beacon Tower of the Great Wall. The First Beacon Tower of the Great Wall is considered to be the western-most point of the defenses of the Great Wall of China as they were in function during most of the Ming Dynasty Era (1368 AD - 1644 AD) . In practice, the first beacon tower of the Great Wall is but an extension of the gargantuan Fortress of Jiayu Pass (Jiayu Guan), which formed the Western-most Gate of the Chinese Empire and was a border checkpoint for all those traveling along the Silk Road in- and out of China.


Drive back to your hotel in Jiayuguan.
