Take a tour of Water Great Wall at Huanghuacheng, a section of the Great Wall that passes through a lake. Meandering through verdant hills and tracing the banks of a reservoir lake, this section remains one of the quietest and uncrowded areas of the Wall--it is also the least restored and can be quite challenging to climb. Hiking this section will provide you with scenic landscape viewpoints and a peaceful opportunity to admire the legendary symbol of China.

  • Huanghuacheng great wall of water located in the Huairou district, no traffic jams, take 1.5 hours by car, traffic will be 3 hours or so. No Badaling so much, so many League here. 45 tickets, buy online in advance will get a discount. The biggest bright spot, where you can pet dogs, but required masters to lead rope, to dogs but also to other tourists.

  • This section of the great wall of water was due to the construction of dams, water level elevated flooded formed part of, not directly on the water. East of the dam of the great wall is very steep, but it is not open to visitors. Great Wall from under the water to dam a relatively short and can be completed very quickly, if you want to go more to the great wall, needs to be underwater near the great wall of the bridge across the Lake. Summer cruise. Where public transport is not convenient, it is best to drive to.
