Located in Miyun county near the town of Gubeikou, 110 kilometres from Beijing city, Gubeikou Great Wall was a famous ancient battlefield.

        In former times, a heavily fortified fortress blocked the strategical passage leading to the capital city. Unfortunately, the original fortress was severely damaged, and the former gate, called "The Iron Gate", and a part of the above-water wall were distroyed. Across the river, the wall rises alongside the water. Remarcable twin towers form the starting point of the wall, built to connect the Great Wall with the former above-water wall. Not far from the Gubeikou Great Wall, a big mound marks a martyr's cemetery. A monument was built to commemorate soldiers killed in battle. The Battle of Gubeikou took place in 1933. The ancient defences helped the Chinese troops to bravely resist the Japanese onslaught. Those soldiers who perished in this battle were hastily buried beneath the mound. The event is known in Chinese history as "The War of the Great Wall Resistance".

        In the vicinity, the ruins of the walls have been partially renovated and made accessible to tourists. Two Great Wall Parks are named "Panlong (coiling dragon)Hills and "Wohu (crouching tiger) Hills".

What Our Clients Say

Two of us enjoyed a truly wonderful tour of Guilin, Yangshuo and surrounding countryside.    Many thanks to CnAdventures for providing very helpful assistance and our guide, David, who was really terrific, both accommodating and informative.  The trip provided a great deal of variety as we hiked, biked and rafted through some of the most gorgeous countryside I have ever seen.  An unplanned side trip to the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terrace was a most worthwhile addition to our itinerary.  Another nice aspect to the trip was the opportunity to sample some excellent local food along the way--stuffed snails and sticky rice cooked in bamboo were a couple of highlights along with rice wine and osmanthus tea.
