Great Wall at Huanghuacheng, Beijing

4.8
A fusion of human architectural prowess and natural defenses, Great Wall at Huanghuacheng provides a glimpse of the famous structure in a relatively unrestored state, with less tourist traffic than more famous sections. Explore this wild stretch of the wall as it climbs towering mountain hillsides and ridges next to a snaking reservoir, passing through dense forests along the way. You'll enjoy sweeping views over the surrounding countryside, including small villages and neighboring mountain peaks, as you trek across and beside the partially overgrown wall. Keep in mind that much of the wall here has not been restored, so be prepared for some rough stretches, and watch your step. Put Great Wall at Huanghuacheng and other Beijing attractions into our Beijing trip itinerary website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • In the soft mountains, the original is built by the ancient city of the mountain, now is the village of the Water library, gradually formed by the landscape long city area. The scenic area is not very big, but in the Beijing suburbs, the tourist attractions are also very famous, dazhen April spring, such as organization, from leisure and hiking fitness angle is not wrong. Ticket 45, the cruise ship to and from 40, the better.

  • Here will not find hundreds of people your way, at most a couple far away. I was years ago in Badaling and this was an amusement park. The wall was new, hundreds of people not to say thousands, speakers with music during the leg, and a box office that anticipates the fact that is the old wall is not nothing. Here in Huangchucjeng, it is different. You arrive in a small village and begin the ascent by a semirenovado section. If you walk for an hour more or less you reach a totally original stretch. The views are incredible and no one! That Yes, we must be a little shape.

  • Absolutely phenomenal and breath taking. So quiet, serene, tranquil, peaceful. Hike up will really take away your breath, literally, but it's so worth it. Bring shoes with good traction. We visited at 10am and were the only ones to be seen. This part supposedly hasn't been restored but it is such a megalithic structure still it is so worth seeing. Absolutely incredible. If you have an 8hr + layover to the wall, through PEK airport in Beijing, the latest you can physically leave the airport and have enough time safely to make your next flight is 5hrs. It's a fair drive here and getting back into the airport through security can be chaotic and slow.
  • This is a fantastic spot to see the Great Wall, however bring your sneakers or hiking boots. We had a tour guide take us which made things slightly easier as someone who only knows a little Mandarin. We had to pay a farmer 5 RMB to walk through his property to get to the Wall. It's very steep and not up kept, but the views are completely worth it.
  • If you want to see the pure wall itself with beautiful view, and no people, and you are not afraid from hiking, you should come here. Hiking shoes strongly recommended!!!
  • Is worth getting up early is to dieseb part of the wall quietly and without many other tourists to visit. This part is generally less full than Badaling, where already at 7 o'clock in the morning fully everything. I can recommend good shoes but only.
