We visited this part of the wall with friends and family. Compared to the parts of the wall in Beijing this part is empty. The wall itself looks quite similar (my point of view). From Tianjin it was a short 2h trip.

People tell me about Great Wall at Mutianyu and Badaling, well I've never been there because from all descriptions it's just so busy. At Huangyaguan it's different, very few people and fantastic scenery. I've been there now maybe 5 times, always the same section of...More

We went early in the morning about 7:30 and chose to start at the top of the mountain (recommended) for a little more cost. It kicked my butt still but it was beautiful and at that time, literally, no other visitors.
