Weichang Manchu and Mongol Autonomous
Chengde | Hebei
Weichang Manchu and Mongol Autonomous County (simplified Chinese: 围场满族蒙古族自治县; traditional Chinese: 圍場滿族蒙古族自治縣; pinyin: ) is a Manchu and Mongol autonomous county located in far northeastern Hebei province, China. It lies under the administration of Chengde City, and is the northernmost county of the province, bordering Inner Mongolia to the north. In terms of area, it is the largest county of Hebei, occupying an area of 9,058 km (3,497 sq mi), though, as it is located in mountainous terrain, it is rather sparsely populated, as of 2004, housing 520,000 people.
The area has been historically home to Manchu soldiers, and the local dialect of Mandarin is similar to that of Beijing, though there is some Northeastern influence[Wiki]
