Yanmenguan is one of important passes through the inner line of the Great Wall. Situated at a place of strategic importance and difficult to get through, it was regarded as the first pass of the 'Nine Passes under Heaven' in ancient times. Many famous historical battles occurred in this area.

The original pass was built on the summit of a hill during the Warring States Period (476-221 BC) by an ancient trail, for defense against the Inner Asian nomads. During Yuan Dynasty it eventually fell into disrepair. The current Yanmen Pass was rebuilt in 1374 during Ming Dynasty.

Follow your tour guide to hike up and down at the Great Wall and admire the nearby Mountain View.
