Juyongguan or Juyong Pass is a mountain pass located in the Changping District of Beijing Municipality, over 50 kilometers from central Beijing. The Great Wall of China passes through, so called Juyongguan Great Wall, and the Cloud Platform was built here in the year 1342.
Juyongguan (pass) is in the 18-kilometer (11 mi)-long Guangou Valley. The pass is one of the three greatest mountain passes of the Great Wall of China. The other two are Jiayuguan and Shanhaiguan (passes). Juyongguan Pass has two ‘sub-passes,’ one at the valley’s south and the other at the north. The southern one is called “Nan (pass)” and the northern is called “Badaling”.
