ADD TO MY TRIP

Shanhaikwan Mountain Pass, located in Qinhuangdao of Hebei, built in 1381,it has historically been an important military stronghold and it actually is the starting point of the Great Wall. Beneath the upper floor there is a board saying "the No.1 mountain pass in the world" which was written in the Ming Dynasty by the famous calligrapher Xiao, that is so precious to see nowadays. There is also a Great Wall Museum near the gate showing the history of the Great Wall, and cultural activities.
