Yan'an has long been a strategically important place that warring states fought over, known as the "Throat of the Frontier Pass" and "Military Stronghold". It is hailed as the "Key to the Three Qins and Throat of the Five Passes". Its iconic Baota Mountain symbolizes this revolutionary holy land, integrating natural and cultural landscapes. Other cultural attractions include the Yangjiaping Revolutionary Site, Fenghuang Mountain Revolutionary Site, and the Mausoleum of the Yellow Emperor - the ancestor of the Chinese nation. The magnificent Yellow River Waterfall at Hukou and the scenic Wanhua Mountain add vibrancy and poignancy to this land of red soil.
