Huanghuacheng Great wall is a wild section which is 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 could have visited some other section of the Great Wall, but our tour operator, Wendy Wu, chose to take us to this location, the "Huanghuacheng section of the Great Wall". What a wonderful choice! It turned out to be the high point of the...More

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!

This visit surpassed my expectations. Amazing 360 degree views all around. Make sure you wear comfortable footwear for some serious walking!

This is one of the last places to see the wall that is not over crowded. At least not yet. My feeling is that this will not last long so go now before it becomes a tourist destination. And go off season like n the...More

Great Wall at Huanghuacheng - this is a well kept section of the wall, liked the group tour here, I must say.

Steep sections of wall on either sides of the valley, not for people with mobility issues. There were sections of shallow steps interspersed with very deep steps (not great coming down). Great views from high up on the wall. On the day we visited there...More

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.
