Jiankou Great Wall is regarded by some people as the most picturesque section of Great Wall and is a good example of "Wild Great Wall".

It's become a popular photographic hotspot and hiking destination. Jiankou is translated as "Arrow Nock" in English, since the shape of the mountains where the wall was built is like an arrow with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock.

Jiankou Great Wall is located at Xizhaizi Village, 30 km from Huairou district, and 70 km from Beijing. It will take a two-hour driving from Beijing downtown.
