Water Great Wall at Huanghuacheng, Beijing

4.3
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.
