Located near a lake and a reservoir, this part of the Wall is called Yellow Flower Fortress and is a good place for hiking.Huanghuacheng Section of the Great Wall is a resort with mountains, lakes and theancient Great Wall. There are very few people to be found here, but it is becomingpopular with hikers.There is a lake and a crescent shaped reservoir nearby. And the lake breaks this sectionof the Great Wall into three segments naturally. Part of the wall is under water and becomes submerged at high tide. So the Huanghuacheng Great Wall is nicknamed "Water Great Wall".The scenery here is unique and will surprise you.

We had always heard of the magnitude of the Great Wall, but never could we have been prepared for what we saw! The grandeur, the massiveness, the history, and the experience will forever be etched in our minds. While the steps can be quite steep...More

During my entire visit to Beijing this was by far the best and most amazing locations I had the privilege to see. It is a shot hike up a steep and gravely hill. There are no services or bathrooms or handrails. If you can handle...More

The wall had been closed for two days prior to our visit, hence the day we went it was extremely busy, the traffic jams were horrendous. I would have loved to have spent a whole day there but we were limited to two hours only....More

The modern cable cars help make the assent and descent relatively easy with the understanding that there are a few steel stair challenges. Regardless, a trip to see and experience the Great Wall of China is an absolute must.

Take time to walk on the steepest parts of The Great Wall from one dam to another, enjoying marvellous scenery without crowds of tourists.

As walls go this was pretty great. Had a good tour guide. The ski lifts up to the top were fun, would advise taking the toboggan down which was also fun.

Not realy. It's very far from HuangHua Cheng to MuTian Yu, the condition of the wall there is not good, it can take you about 10 hours easily, and the trail is dangerous. It's not recommended.
