What people are saying:

Hello everyone, me and my girlfriend visited this place at jiayugan before 2 weeks, and we had very nice time. It's very different to see the great wall with a desrt view, unlike the popular site near Beijing area. Also the place not so popular and the entrence tickets was very cheap.I definitely recommend to go there.

Additional Information


In the Ming Dynasty, Jiayuguan Pass had jurisdiction over "hinterland, border areas and external piers, totaling 39." Piers on the Pass were numerous, crossed each other, were visible from each other, and were used to exchange information. The First Pier of the Great Wall is in the south of the Pass, which was responsible for transmitting military information from the south of the Pass and from the sites in Qilian Mountain. The pier was equipped with docks, post horses, post camels, food, accommodation and firewood, as well as a certain number of guards.
