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.

Beautiful place. I love hiking and ancient places, so, I went there to enjoy. I stayed in Beijing, and didn’t want to use a bus, so, I ordered taxi. There you can find nice places for picnic. You also can by some food and drinks there.
不到长城非好汉 He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man. lake side greatwall, Beijing is one of top tourist summer destinations as it has surrounded by mountains, lake, green natural beauty and good public transportation system from city center. Its a very recommended spot specially for autumn scenic 😍
Amazing view of nature! Hardly any tourists. Not the easiest hike. Be prepared for possible slippery steep path if the stone pavings are wet, good grip shoes recommended or go barefoot. The wind can be strong at times ... not for the faint hearted as there’s no side walls at some parts. Be happy to have the opportunity to sit on the Great Wall enjoying the breathtaking 360 view of mountains and beyond, soak up the perfect weather and ponder upon how they built this super long Great Wall and how the soldiers managed to march and fight in such conditions 🤔 I did 😊
1st of all make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes. there is going to be a lot of walking. This is by far the most beautiful site of the great wall of china. The landscaping is magnificent. There is a lot of activities to be done here. Boat cruise in the beautiful late. But again for one to experience all this must be prepared to walk a lot and climb many stairs. But all the walking its worth it. This is the only lakeside of the Great wall. Its a must see.
A very beautiful and peaceful portion of the Great Wall during the winter period. (Note: it is 2 hours away from Central Beijing) Went on a weekday (Monday) morning in early December and there wasn't a lot of people at all (less than 20 pax) through out. The hike was relatively easy (for someone with medium to active lifestyle). There is also an option to take a boat ride to your around the lake / great wall.
