It was beautiful and even though we haven't been on another part of the wall, I can definitely say this is the most stunning part of the wall. The lake view is priceless and there are a lot of faculties around the wall at this place. Unfortunately the amusement park was closed due to winter and most part of the wall was also closed but at the summer time I am pretty sure it's the best. Especially for people with kids. You can also float on the lake in a boat.

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 and I was able to spend 4 hours and not see another person on the wall. 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.

Highly recommend visiting the Great Wall. We did a tour that included a driver and tour guide transporting us to part of the Wall that’s easily accessible with a cable car. It had snowed the day before so we had a beautiful, clear sunny day but still very cold so luckily we dressed warm. The view was spectacular and the Wall history and construction unbelievable.

Enjoyed this trip thoroughly. Thanks to May for picking us up at our hotel early in the morning and dropping us off at the airport in time for the flight. In between she showed us the great wall. Very thoughtful of her to pick up some fruit and water prior to picking us up. She was knowledgeable and very friendly, spoke good English and was pleasant to deal with. For someone who does not speak Mandarin I would recommend taking a guided tour rather than doing a solo trip. Will help tremendously. Loved it. Thanks May.
