Dunhuang, China

Pay a visit at The Jade Gate Pass Great Wall Fort — Yumenguan Fort

Situating at a strategic location during the Ancient Silk Road, Yumenguan Pass or the Jade Gate Pass Great Wall Fort to the northwestern part of Dunhuang is a famous historical site of the town. Along with Yangguan Pass, Yumenguan served as an important military fort of the Han Dynasty in Chinese history protecting Dunhuang from the outside invasions as well as a notable stop of the ancient trade route. It was among the major gateways to enter the Central Asia and Western countries from the center of China and vice versa. The remains of the ancient fort nowadays along with the wilderness and remote atmosphere of a place which has ever been bustling and crowded delivers visitors a great appreciation of the thriving ancient trading history in the past and offers great opportunities of sightseeing experiences amidst the vastness of the desert scenery.
