Jinshanling Great Wall, located some 140 kilometers to the northeast of Beijing, starts from the Wangjinglou Tower in the east and ends at Longyukou in the west and stretches about 10 kilometers. There are 5 main passes and 67 either one tiered or two-tiered watchtowers, in this section with enemy towers on it every 100 meters. The big Jinshan Watchtower, small Jinshan Watchtower, Wangjinglou Tower, Taochun Tower and Wall for Preventing Horses are the highlights of the trip to Jinshanling section.
Jinshanling tours take good advantag of the excellent condition of its wall and the majesty of its watchtowers. From afar, it conjures the image of a dragon lying across the mountains and it is easy to imagine the kind of awe it would have inspired in ancient times. There is a three-kilometer (two miles) section of the Wall was rebuilt and is bathed after dark in colored light, making a splendid "Night Great Wall". In addition, an eight hundred meters (0.5 miles) long cable was built to entertain the tourists. Anyone who travel to the Jinshanling Great Wall should not miss them.
