At the 2010 census, its population was 4,345,485 inhabitants on, divided into 17 Counties and Districts. The built-up (or metro) area made of Qiaoxi, Qiaodong Districts and Wanquan County largely being conurbated had 838,978 inhabitants in 2010 on 1412.7 km2. Due to its position on several important transport arteries, it is a critical transport node for travel between Hebei and Inner Mongolia and connecting northwest China, Mongolia, and Beijing.Zhangjiakou will host some of the events at the 2022 Winter Olympics.NamesZhangjiakou is written in simplified Chinese and in traditional Chinese. It is Zhāngjiākǒu in pinyin and the name means "Zhang family gate." Older names for the town in Chinese include Zhāngyuán, used in the Republican era, and Zhāngjiāpù.Zhangjiakou was historically known to the Europeans as Kalgan until the mid 20th century. This name derives from the Mongolian name of the city, 40px, "Chuulalt haalga" or shorter, 20px, "haalgan" which means "the gate" (in the Great Wall). In Manchu, the city is known as 18px (Imiyangga jase).
