The Great Wall at Jinshanling will be closed on 1st June 2017

The Great Wall at Jinshanling is going to be closed from 1st June 2017, a notice released by local authority in Hebei Province today. The announcement indicates that the road and other infrastructure will be improved to accommodate visitors in future. The reopening is unknown currently and the closure is expected to be 4 months at least. Jinshanling is located in Luanping County, Chengde City, Hebei Province. It’s a great combination of both untouched and restored parts of the Great Wall. It’s also a popular place for photographers from both home and abroad. If you’re planning visit Jinshanling, you have to find alternates at Gubeikou, Mutianyu, Jiankou and other sections of the Great Wall. We will keep watching the progress and launch updates immediately once it’s reopened to public.

It’s a pity that the doorway was blocked.
