Pingxiang Friendship Pass Features

Highlight
The pass used to be called Zhennan(South Pacification)pass, and was o­ne of the nine important passes in ancient China. It was where the army of the Qing Dynasty won a great victory in the Sino-French War, and where Dr.Sun Yat-sen led an uprising against the Qing government.
   In March 1885,the French army launched an attack o­n China from Vietnam at the South Pacification Pass, General Feng Zicai, a native of Guangxi and commander of Qing army, routed the French army in a bloody battle.Abandoning7 their weapons and gear, the French fled helter-skelter out of the pass. Evidence of the battle can still be seen today. To show friendship and good neighborliness, the name of the pass was changed into South Befriending Pass and then into Friendship Pass.
Most of the battlements were installed for the purpose of defense against invasion of the French colonialist army  during the Qing dynasty. The most famous o­nes are those o­n Jinji(Golden Rooster)Mountain.
   Golden Rooster Mountain o­n the western side of the Friendship Pass rises 511 meters above sea level, and is a commanding height in this area. There are sheer cliffs11 o­n every side of this strategically12 situated mountain. The peaks of the mountain stand like the legs of a tripod, making the mountain easy to defend and difficult to attack. After the Sino-French War, the garrison general of the South Pacification Pass had a battlement built o­n each of the three peaks and named them the Central, South and North pacification battlements. Today, while the ancient battlements are still there, the mountain serves as a modern frontier guard post13, with radar antennae sweeping the sky day and night.
