Q & A about Jiayuguan by Our Customers

Topic From: Great Wall Sections
1 Answer

My husband and I will be touring with A&K the Mutianyu part of the wall on October 14th. We are arriving early in Beijing and are wondering if we should book a separate and additional excursion to Jiayuguan? We want to experience the wall fully. Any suggestions to visiting the wall or additional Beijing experiences would be appreciated. Thank you.

Whitney Liao (Mar. 5, 2014) replied:
Hi Christine, how long will you stay in China, please? The Jiayuguan Great Wall is far far away from Beijing. It is in Gansu Province which is about 1500km. There is no direct fligh from Beijing to Jiayuguan. You will have to transit in Xian or other city. It almost takes one day on the way. If your time permits, we would like to work out an itinerary for your reference. Besides the Mutianyu Great Wall in Beijing, we also recommend the Forbidden City, the Tain'anmen Square, Temple of Heaven, the traditional local residence Hutong, the Summer Palace, etc. For more Great Wall sections in Beijing, the wilder sections of the Great Wall such as Jinshanling Great Wall, Gubeikou Great Wall, Simatai Great Wall,  and Jiankou Great Wall are also suggested. And they are just in the suburb of Beijing, no need to fly several hours to get there.

Lussie Lu (Jul. 23, 2013) replied:
Dear Shommi, There is no direct train from Zhangye to Guilin. You need to take a train to Zhengzhou at first, it takes about 20 hours and it costs about CNY560/US$92 for the soft sleeper, and then take another overnight train to Guilin. It takes about 20 hours and it costs about CNY480/US$79 for the soft sleeper.

Hi apple. Sorry that China Highlights does not provide motorbike renting service in Jiayuguan. I think you can also consult local rental company if possible. By the way, China Highlights can offer hotel/flight/train ticket booking and customer-suited tour to Jiayuguan at a reasonable price. If you need our service, Please do not hesitate to let me know. Best regards, Kevin.

What is the status of travel advisory to Xinjiang? noticed latest post is 2009. Is there railway travel between Jiayuguan City and Urumqi?

Asked by Jordan on Feb. 22, 2012

Tours in Xinjiang usually include a long distance driving since the province is a vast area. Road condition will sometimes be poor. Hotels and restaurants in remote areas are usually basic. About the tour guides in Xinjiang http://www.chinahighlights.com/aboutus/guide/guide-xinjiang.htm There are many trains between Jiayuguan and Urumqi.

Hi, the only means of transportation from Jiayuguan to Qiyi Glacier is rented car or in a arranged tour. Note the road conditions are poor at high elevation. I recommend you to travel in an arranged tour if you want to go there.
