Jiayuguan - Om man har tid över kan man ta en avstickare till Jiayuguan som ligger på huvudlinjen till Lanzhou. Man kan ta morgon tåget för att stanna under dagen. Sedan tar man natt tåget till Lanzhou. Man reser genom ökenlandskapet för att besöka Kinesiska muren vid dess västra ändpunkt. Staden ligger vid järnvägen (5km) . . Att se: Jiayu Pass Fort / Jiayuguan Pass ligger 5km från staden, är öppen 8.00am-8.00pm (40Y). Overhanging Great Wall 6km norr om Fortet eller 14 km ?? från staden. Att vandra längs muren kostar 10Y

Jiayuguan Fort : (3), 15Y + 3Y to go up

Overhanging great wall : (3), 8Y / Reach it by taking the small dirt road from the Fort, toward the mountains, by following a wall. The sight of it from a distance is great but as you approach, you get the feeling that this stuff is made from plastic... If you still have legs, the view from the top is rewarding. Back in town, you can continue your great wall experience by checking :

Great wall Museum : (2), 8Y + 2Y to go up + 2Y to see photos of African's girls (!) / Without English description, the place is of poor interest and the view from the top nothing special (especially coming from the "real" stuff...)

If you are rich and/or with particular interests, you can also check the nice but small Xincheng Wei-Jin Art Gallery : 31Y, Taxi 80Y return
