Wear flat shoes and water. Camera and great opportunity for photos. Take your time climbing and enjoy it. Wrap up well on cold days as its much colder than Beijing during winter.

This section has not been restored, so several areas no longer have side walls! To get up, you have to climb a small metal ladder, then crawl in through a window in the watchtower! The wall has several steep sections, but not a difficult hike....More

We arrived here right when the park opened and for about 20 min had the entire wall to ourselves! There was no crowds. The lake views are wonderful! I highly recommend this section!

We walked from Zhuangdaokou over to Huanghuacheng and recommend taking the path in this direction as it is more steep upwards walking in the other direction from Huanghuacheng. Picture perfect and lots of good photo op's!
