I travelled to two sections of the Great Wall this Juyong pass being the first. It seems newly constructed and I was told by a Chinese man who has walked all sections of the Great Wall in Beijing that it was re constructed in 1995. Not sure if this is true but it does not seem to have a feeling of great age to it. It now has tourist shops and a place you can get your name carved on bamboo momento plaques.
There is a steep climb and a less steep climb, I did the steep one because the sun was going down behind the steep section and I figured the photos would be better pointing at the part not blocked by the sun. I also went to Gubeikou Great Wall which was wild, unrestored ( but they are starting to restore a section of it) and breathtakingly beautiful. This part of the wall is at one part 1600 years old and another part 600 years old. I loved it amazing! A 3 hour bus ride fro Beijing but worth it. Go there instead.
