Jiayuguan (Excellent Valley Pass) is at the extreme western end of the Hexi Corridor where the Gobi Desert begins to broaden into the vast emptiness of the Tarim Pendi, the desert lying in the heart of Xinjiang. In this context 'pass' refers to a gateway and fort on the Great Wall, here built of earth.
