Detail



After 20-minute driving from Huangsongyu Reservior, we are now at the crossroad of Kaoshanjibeikou (靠山集北口) with east leading to Huangyaguan Great Wall 30km, south to Jinhai Lake, and north to our destination Jiangjunguan (将军关) 8km.




Actually Jiangjunguan Village is now divided into two parts – The original old village and the new village. We have just driven past the new village, where all the villagers live in the brand new two-storey buildings. Most of the famlies in the new village are engaged in rural tourism, providing housing and eating to the urban residents driving to the countrysides on the weekends. 
Jiangjunguan Village

We skip over the new village and directly enter the old one. The ancient Jiangjunguan Village is a standard mountain village lying on the flat and open place in the valley with its west side extending to the main road linking Beijing and Hebei Province. So Jiangjunguan Village is a border village abutting the Hebei Province in the northeast. 
 
Jiangjunguan Village is one of the villages in Beijing which still keep its traditional and pristine structures – made of stone and brick walls, tiles and dirt roads.

Jiangjunguan Great Wall
Standing on the north of Jiangjunguan Village is a bit of the Great Wall built in Ming Dynasty, locally referred as “Jiangjunguan Great Wall”. “Jiangjunguan” literally means “a general’s pass”. This place used to be an important pass with military importance, the reason why the fort was built here.It is said Jiangjunguan Great Wall is the first Great Wall pass (fort) in Beijing from the east. Or in other words, Jiangjunguan Great Wall is the first section of the Great Wall from east Beijing with Beijing’s most western section at
Changyucheng Great Wall. 

Jiangjunguan Great Wall stands on the north of the Jiangjunguan Village.


Through our field inspection, we find this section of the wall is made of all the rocks with little lime cementing these rock. Most of the battlements are destroyed and collapsed. The wall surface looks bare and rough. 
Jiangjunguan Great Wall is fitfully linked to Huangyaguan Great Wall (under jurisdiction of Tianjin) in the east. It is said that it takes about 18 hours’ hike between the two bits of the Wall. Now Jiangjunguan Great Wall is officially foridden for hiking to protect the wild sections of the Wall around Beijing.
