Yangguan Pass and Yumen guan Pass were the two important military stronghold protecting Dunhuang from invasion from the Huns since114 B.C. in Han Dynasty. Yangguan Pass has a history of over 2000 years and great sections is devoured by shifting sands. However the ever-refulgent pass hardly in sight, the ancient relics such as bricks, pottery pieces etc. in the sand dunes nearby are the evidence of civilization here.
