The Jiankou section has never been restored since its construction, with some sections having fallen into disrepair. This, along with its location along a mountain ridge bordered by jagged cliffs and steep drop-offs, makes this section potentially dangerous to climb, while at the same time a popular place for adventurous and experienced hikers and photographers. The section is more easily reached from villages like Xizhazi (西栅子) and Jiushuikeng (旧水坑) at the north side of the wall, locally known as Hou Jiankou (后箭扣), than from the south, called Qian Jiankou (前箭扣). The climb from the north goes up just over 100 meters in about a one kilometer hike, whereas from the south the climb is about 450 meters up over a horizontal distance of also one kilometer.

The highlights of Jiankou Section
There are many famous sections of Jiankou Great Wall, such as "The Nine-Eye Tower", an important command post during the ancient wars. It has three layers, and there are nine holes which look like nine eyes on each side. "The Beijing Knot" is the meeting point for three walls coming from different directions. "The Sky Stair", is a precipitous stair whose angle of elevation is 70 to 80 degrees. It leads to 'The Eagle Flies Facing Upward', a watch tower built on the lofty peaks. It is so dangerous that even eagles have to fly facing upward to reach the top. "Zhengbei Tower" is the right place to appreciate the beauty of the sunrise and the sunset.
