Translated into Arrow Nock in English, the Jiankou Great Wall is regarded by most people as the most picturesque spot of the Great Wall, greatly targeted by photographers and hikers because of its scenic beauty. Look for a serviced apartment in Beijing that would allow you easy access to the wall and Somerset ZhongGuanCun Beijing is a good choice if you are looking for comfortable Beijing serviced apartments that would afford you both convenience of location and comfort of body and mind. Material used to build this part of the wall is mainly dolomite which has made the base of the walls much harder and stronger. Connecting Mutianyu from the east and Huanghuacheng from the west, the Jiankou Great Wall is shaped like an arrow with the collapsed ridge opening as its arrow nock because of which it gains its name. There are many important sections in the Jiankou Great Wall out of which the Beijing Knot stands out which is the meeting point for three walls coming from different directions. An important command post that can be found here is the Nine-Eye Tower which is comprised of 3 layers and 9 holes which look like eyes from each side. However, if one is interested in appreciating the sublime beauty of the sunset, the Zhengbei Tower is obviously the place to be.
