Gallery: Peach Trees Blossom on Track Through Popular Spring Travel Spot

Around this time each year, visitors flock to northern Beijing’s Juyong Pass — one of the Great Wall’s three most famous passes — to see the first blossoms of spring. To keep them safe from passing trains the local government is building a trackside boardwalk and two observation decks, which it expects to complete by April 20.
