Am going to Beijing on a tour in mid March. I am on a morning tour to the above section of the Great Wall. Any tips on what I should see in such a short time? Also, is the cable car open or enclosed in Juyongguan?

Juyongguan is the closet section to downtown Beijing. I think 2 hours will be enough to hike on Juyongguan Grea Wall. There’s no cable car on Juyongguan.
