After breakfast drive to Yumenguan pass which is located about 110kms from Dunhuang city. “Yumenguan” means jade Pass in Chinese and it is said that the jades from Western region transported into central China only through this pass. It used to be the gateway to west region on the northern Silk Road. In ancient times, it also functioned as a military strategic pass and significant passage of the ancient Silk Road.
Then continue the tour to Great Wall of the Han Dynasty (206 BC to 220 BC). Unlike other parts of the wall brick and stone, this section is made of rammed earth, gravel and juniper. Over time, the wall has been badly damaged by nature and humans, but you can still see how the wall looked like at first.
After that drive to Yadan National Geology park, a landscape that has been eroded by aeolian erosion. Entering the park, you can find various natural sculptures in different postures and shapes.
Our last stop is Yangguan Pass which is also used to be one of the most important gateway on the Ancient Silk Road.
