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.

The steep inclines, irregular and often deep steps, absence of handholds,and broken stones make this a challenge for inexperienced hikers, but worth the effort for the challenge and stunning views.

This part of the Great Wall is actually closed but the locals open it up and charge you 10-15 yuan to access it. You access this part of the wall by climbing a sturdy but narrow ladder (fyi if you're scared of heights). It's beautiful up there and there's usually less than 15 people. You pretty much have the Wall... More

We went on a tour to the Great Wall in April. It was a beautiful day and hot. The wall is incredible, but the climb up the steps is daunting. Some people did not make it to the top tower, but views could be seen in every direction so it did not really matter. There are easier walks for those... More

Incredible to stand on this ancient wall and impossible not to give homage to the Chinese numbering in the millions forced to work on.

This is the only part of Great Wall which is partly submerged in a manmade lake (result of a dam). It gives a unique view. Climbing down the dam was another experience. A big hand to those maintaining the toilets at the Peninsula (very clean and fresh).

The Lakeside Great Wall at Huanghuacheng is a cool part of the Wall to see. However, if your time is limited, I would recommend seeing the Great Wall at Mutianyu or Jinshanling. I feel like you experience more of the Wall at those places than here. However, this is still a cool part to see as it has the water... More

There is a steep climb to get to the chairlift. The ground is cobbled and can be trick. The chairlift is fast and not over crowded. ITS WORTH THE EFFORT.

Huanghuacheng Great Wall lies in Huairou, about 50km from downtown Beijing. Actually there are Huanghuacheng Great Wall UNDER WATER and Huanghuacheg WILD Great Wall in the same area. The one I recommend is the latter, Huanghuacheg WILD Great Wall. It has not yet been developed as a tourist spot, so it is very quiet and primitive with very few tourists.... More
