The best-preserved part of the Han Great Wall can be found five kilometers west of Yumenguan, and 90 kilometers to the north west of the city of Dunhuang.
Dunhuang, a 2,000-year-old city along the Silk Road, is the cradle of the Mogao Caves, the largest and most richly-endowed treasure house of Buddhist art in the world.
Zhangye and Dunhuang are two must see places in Gansu. You’ll love it there despite the hot, dry weather.
