The Davilia Kickstart Group in China




Juyongguan Great Wall

                    Juyongguan Pass, surrounded by mountains, is the nearest section of the Great Wall to Beijing. Long considered a military stronghold, it was a very important strategic place connecting the inner land and the area near the northern border of China. It was also used to defend the ancient city of Beijing. Juyongguan is one of the three greatest passes of the Great Wall of China and in 1987, Juyongguan Pass was enlisted in the World Heritage Directory as a national cultural protection unit.                                                                                            


Juyongguan Great Wall is a pass ('guan" means mountain pass) through the mountains located in an 
18km long valley, about 50km from Beijing.


The Davila Kickstart Kids group visited the Juyongguan Great Wall this Spring.

Watch towers were built at regular intervals along the Great Wall and could be up to 40 feet tall. They were used as lookouts and fortresses as well as for housing garrisons of troops and stockpiled supplies. They were also signal stations, where beacons, smoke, or flags were used for messages. They also represented a tremendous diversity of architectural styles.
