An enjoyable walk with few other tourists on the day we walked (early May). The surface was generally un-refurbished, with crumbling steps and bricks. There are several long and steep sections. Many scenic views.

Aside from school field trips and corporate team building groups who congregate at the surrounding parks, Huanghuacheng is a crowd-free scenic place to view the Great Wall. Situated on the Wall's only body of water (a reservoir/lake), you can take a sightseeing or high-speed boat...More

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!
