Yan'an (Chinese: 延安; Mandarin pronunciation: [jɛ̌n.án]) is a prefecture-level city in the Shanbei region of Shaanxi province, China, bordering Shanxi to the east and Gansu to the west. It administers several counties, including Zhidan (formerly Bao'an), which served as the headquarters of the Chinese Communists before the city of Yan'an proper took that role.

This place is also known as the Date Garden, the site of the former offices Chinese Communist Party Secretariat. It is very similar to the Yangjialing Revolutionary Former site. One can leisurely explore the cave houses as well as a simple garden. Worthwhile to visit if you are in Yanan region and interested in Chinese revolutionary history.

This revolutionary memorial complex is large and sprawling, and is very popular with large groups of predominantly domestic tour groups. It is definitely worth visiting when in yan'an, as it presents the chinese cultural revolution from a unique perspective.

I visited this place as part of 2D1N Yanan/Hukou tour from Xian. Those who are keen in Chinese political history will probably enjoy this place more than the casual tourists. This site was generally well maintained and preserved, such as the auditorium & the residences of Chairman Mao, Premier Zhou Enlai and other Chinese Communist Party's early leaders. Worthwhile to visit if you are in Yanan region.

Visiting in the middle of winter, we found the way up extremely long and difficult. Add in the steep sections and slippery steps iced over in places, making theis site unsuitable for anyot who isn't reasonably fit. Grippy shoes are a must !!
The views from the top were great though, and made it all worthwhile.
The descent was even harder than the wsy up, as we kept worrying about slipping on an icy patch on the steep steps.
Highly recommended to visit, but arrive prepared.

This is a 44-metre high, octagonal, brick pagoda. It is a protected national relic, the symbol of Yan’an, and located on the top of Baota Hill (Pagoda Hill), which is 1136 metres in height and overlooks Yan'an City. Similar to many pagodas in China, it is illuminated in the evening.
President Xi Jinping has referred to Baota Mountain as the symbol of the Chinese Communist revolution.
The pagoda was originally built during the Tang Dynasty (618 to 907), and rebuilt during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
An inexpensive way to get to the pagoda is by bus # 1 or #3. They can be boarded at Yan'an Railway Station, or anywhere along their routes.
There is a 65 rmb admission fee to tour the pagoda.
