About Zhangjiakou

Zhangjiakou (张家口), a prefecture-level city under the jurisdiction of Hebei Province, is a central city in northwestern Hebei. Zhangjiakou is the region with the most number of currently existing sections of the Great Wall and has thus earned the name “the Great Wall Museum.” It also won the right to hold the 2022 Winter Olympic Games with Beijing. In December 2017, it was named one of “China's 10 Best Snow and Ice Tourist Cities.” Famous attractions here include Huangdi (黄帝) City, Dajing (大境) Gate, the Great Wall, and the Bashang (坝上) Grasslands.

Popular Attractions in Zhangjiakou

Grass Skyline Scenic Road
4.5/5
1,331 Reviews
The Grass Skyline, nicknamed “China’s Route 66,” passes many beautiful sights like grassland, windmills, terraced farm fields, and rock cliffs. Driving along the road is a good choice for a weekend sightseeing trip in the vicinity of Beijing. The Grass Skyline’s west end begins at Yehu (“Wild Fox”) Ridge on the south side of the Zhangbei County seat and continues east to Huapi Ridge in Chongli County. The land around the Skyline is covered in wildflowers in the summertime and becomes a sea of gold in the autumn. You can enter from either the Yehu Ridge or Huapi Ridge side, and the entire stretch of road is a beautiful drive. Since it climbs a lot, you'll often see the road appear to end at the horizon, which is how it got the name “skyline.” You can pull over anywhere to get out of the car and take beautiful photographs.
