Juyongguan Great Wall is site of an ancient military town which is replete with military installations, watch towers, official residences, temples, a Confucian school and other structures. The present Pass was initially built in the Ming Dynasty and received much renovation later. It is a very important strategic place connecting the inner land and the area near the northern border of China. The Juyongguan Pass has been known for its strategic importance for more than 2,000 years.

JuYongGuan Pass was built in 1368, and along with Zijing and Daoma passes, they form the "Inner three passes" of the Chinese Great Wall. The Great Wall at JuYongGuan pass is close to 8.5 meters high, 6.5 meters wide at the base, and 5.7 meters wide at the top.

JuYongGuan pass is a key gateway leading to inner Mongolia. JuYongGuan pass opened to tourism in 1998 after a five year renovation. Its located in an 18 km stretch of valley named "Guangou", about 50km away from Beijing city. In the 13th century, the calvary of Genghis Khan swept through JuYongGuan Pass.

Entering JuYongGuan pass, tourists will see an ancient platform made off marble called the Cloud Terrace, and was built in 1345. The cloud terrace is 9.5 meters high, 26.8 meters wide, and 17.6 meters long. Recommended time for visit is 2.5 to 3 hours.
