Jiayuguan Pass at the western end of the Great Wall extends southward to the Taolai River near the snow-capped Qilian Mountains and northward to the precipices of the Heishan Mountain.
On the mountains meanders the great Wall. The Jjiayuguan pass tower, strategically located between the Qilian Mountain and Mazong Mountain, guards the east-west passageway at the western end of the great Wall and is the best preserved pass.
Surrounded by three inner and outer walls and several lines of defense, Jiayuguan was a vital military stronghold of defense.
