Jiayugaun

Jiayugaun
In Jiayugaun you can visit the west end of the Great Wall of China, the Jiayuguan Pass. It is one of the largest and most intact passes of the Great Wall. It was an important military fortress and also a vital traffic fort along the Silk Road, the world's oldest trading route, connecting China, Central Asia and Europe. Standing in the endless desert with rolling mountains as its backdrop, this isolated pass will take you back to the desolation and loneliness of frontier life in ancient times.
