Located in the mountainous area of Tianjin’s northern Ji County, the Huangyaguan Pass was first built during the Northern Qi Dynasty (550 – 557) and repaired in large scale with bricks during the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644). When appointed as the chief commanding officer in the Ji Garrison (one of the eleven garrisons of the Ming Dynasty), Qi Jiguang added watch towers and other defensive works.

The pass comes out first in the ten most-visited sites in Tianjin. It is considered to be a miniature of the Great Wall of China. The entire section is built on an abrupt mountain ridge. Being endowed with both natural beauty and cultural interest, it has become famous as a natural beauty spot and a summer resort. The major scenic area is composed of the pass itself and Taiping Mountain Stronghold.
