We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Datong Yanmenguan Pass
Yanmenguan Pass is one of the three passes in China (the other two are Ningwuguan Pass and Pianguan Pass). “Yan” means “wild goose” in English, and was so named because Mt. Yanmen was high and steep, only a small gate that wild goose could fly.

Early in the Spring and Autumn Period (770BC-476BC), King Wuling of Zhao established Yamnemguan County in this region and it was well known for its strategic importance. Located at a place of strategic importance and difficult to get through, it was regarded as the principal one of the nine passes under heaven in ancient times.

Many famous historical battles have been fought in the area. In 1347 during the Ming Dynasty, Ji’an Marquis Lu Heng moved Yanmengguan Pass several kilometers to the north, and built a new pass city at present place.

The pall is 0.6 meters wide. There are three gates: the small north gate, west gate and east gate. The small north gate is inscribed with the three characters, “Yan Men Guan”; the west gate is labelled “Di Li”, meaning the favorable geographical location; the east gate is labeled “Tian Xian”. Translated as the unbrea kable stronghold. Adjacent to the pass, lies Jingbian Temple.

The Yanmenguan Pass is being well preserved at present. It is a precious ancient military relic, attracting more and more people who visit her to recall past times.
