- Trip to Jiuquan China

It seems that Jiuquan tour is not the most popular place for sightseeing by most travelers to China, but Jiuquan city still boasts its long history and special scenery. Jiuquan, a prefecture-level city, is located in the westernmost part of Gansu Province in China. The main elements of the landscape in Jiuquan are mountain, basin, gobi and oasis. Enjoying the history of more than 1600 years, Jiuquan used to be a major stopover place along the famous Silk Road northwest from Lanzhou, the capital city of Gansu, and an important economic site due to its abundant mineral deposits. Now, Jiuquan is famous as the nation's satellite launch center. Thus, Jiuquan is named as "the hometown of the Dunhuang art" and "the cradle of China's aerospace industry".

The transportation in Jiuquan is relatively convenient with train, air and road connecting other places in China. There are some historical relics in and around Jiuquan city. The city's drum tower is the symbol of China's brilliant history and used to be known as "Night Watchman's Tower". It is the only remaining structure left in which Marco Polo praised in his writings. A few miles away from the city is where the Jiayuguan Pass is located, the western end of the Great Wall. The walls were originally constructed by the Han and perfected by the Ming Dynasty before they abandoned it.

Your website says that the most west of the Great Wall is in Jiuquan,can I visit there? what's more,are there any other tour attractions surrounding Jiuquan?

Name:Re: Jiuquan Tour

Exactly speaking, Jiuquan is about 20 km away from Jiayuguan Pass, the west most part of the Great Wall. Transportation to Jiuquan is not convenient, so I suggest that you could go to Xian or Lanzhou first, for there are trains directly to Jiuquan. I advise you to choose the Silk Road tour which includes Jiuquan and other main attractions in the Silk Road. It is better not visit Jiuquan by yourself.
