Know More about this tour

At 8:30 am or 13:30 pm, your private English-speaking guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel to embark on a half day of adventure. You will be transferred by comfortably air-conditioned private vehicle to Jade Gate Pass that is located about 90 kilometers away from downtown Dunhuang. 
The Jade Gate Pass and the site of Han Dynasty Great Wall (256 B.C. - 195 B.C.) which takes approximately 1 hour. In Chinese history, Han Dynasty built many walls to strengthen the safety of their frontier as well as exploring ways to do business with the western region. Instead of piling up layers upon layers of stones or bricks like other dynasties did, the Great Wall of Han Dynasty was built with sand and weeds that were abundant locally. These two materials were mixed together by being layered on top of each other. On average, every layer measures from 4.7 to 5.9 inches (12 to 15 centimeters). Current remains of the wall is ranging from 1.6 feet tall to over 6.6 feet in height.
At the end, you will be transferred back to your Dunhuang hotel  where this tour ends around 13:00pm or 18:30pm
