Tianjin Huangyaguan Great Wall

Huangyaguan Great Wall is situated in Jixian Country, 120 km away from Tianjin.and stands just in the middle of the Beijing, Tianjin, Tangshan and Chengde. Being 41 km in length, it is a section of the Great Wall, which is less known for foreigners. The Huangyaguan Great Wall was originally built in 557 and rebuilt with a new design when Qijiguang, a Chinese famous general was the chief of military of Jixian in the Ming Dynasty. Huangyaguan Great Wall is one section of the Great Wall, but has different features with those in Beijing. Annually, the International Marathon Race is held here. Huangyaguan Great Wall can be reached by car or by bus from Tianjin City.

Huangyaguan Pass: In 1984, the people of Tianjin spent three years repairing 3,308 yards of the main wall from Banlagang Mountain in the east to Wangmaoding Mountain in the west. They restored 20 terraces, the Huangyaguan Water Gate, and the Bagua Castle (the Eight Diagrams Castle). The defensive system of the wall is complete. Watch towers, frontier cities, drain holes, emplacements, barracks and other indispensable military facilities are arranged orderly along the wall. Besides, the stele forests of the Great Wall, Beiji Temple, the exhibition hall of famous couplets, the Great Wall Museum (the first museum along the Great Wall) and the Phoenix Fortress have been newly built within the area.

Taiping Mountain Stronghold: Six miles northwest of Huangyaguan Pass and built 437 yards to 547 yards above sea level, the stronghold is located in Xiaopingan Village. It controls the Chongshan Valley east of Huangyaguan Pass City. Qi Jiguang's stone statue and a tower were erected by twelve widows from this area.

Huangyaguan Great Wall welcomes tourists from all over the world, including many runners, who participate in the annual international marathon race.
