Overview

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.

A decent distance from Beijing, and lacking in the large tourist numbers as a result, a real bonus. Much of the section is unrestored, and more challenging as a result. There's some fantastic views along the way, and at about 12km, about right for a...More

I would definitely recommend visiting this part of the Great Wall because of how quiet it is. It is a bit far out and takes about an hour and a half to get to by car from Beijing central. It runs through private farm land...More

As tempting as it might be, if you are unfit and have some walking difficulties, give it a miss. The wall is very steep, and the steps are irregular ; most times of the day there are huge crowds ; and if the weather is...More

Went here during our tour of China. We should have visited a different site but is was closed for renovation. This site is a long ride from Beijing. Our ride was longer as the motorway was closed because of fog, necessitating a diversion. Over 3...More

You will not have any problems - I am 50 and was wearing old army boots. Just don't go when it's wet and be prepared for some steep ramps and steps that can be just as tricky coming down as they are going up. An hour is okay... 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.
