I searched online for a short and reasonable priced trip to a site other than Badaling. I found a tour company that specializes in getting groups to the wall on short layovers in Beijing. It turns out that the guide they have for the Great Wall is named Tony and is reviewed in the Great Wall at Mutianyu. I contacted... More

a little far from Beijing, not so full of tourist. A nice idea if you want to stay one day out of Beijing. Be prepared to pay around 200 rmb for the entrance

This wall is better than BaDaLing, because it is not so noisy and crowd, and view is more beautiful, so i recommend this wall

Having visited other sections of the Great Wall, we were looking forward to spending time at Huanghuacheng. We were certainly not disappointed as we were treated to amazing views of the Great Wall and the surrounding countryside.

I posted this review previously in Juyong pass of great wall. The Great Wall is one of the world seven wonder. So you must visit it if you are in China. Moreover there is a proverb says if you have not visited the Great Wall of China, it means that you have not been to China. Therefore, I and a... More

Beautiful place to see the wall in a non renovated section, great scenery witht he water nearby. Good for a day tour or as part of a longer great wall trek.

The Great Wall, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, it winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 13,170 miles (21,196 kilometers) from east to west of China.

Brilliant to visit away from too many tourists and still get a fantastic view, near a lake. Beware of locals trying to charge you to access 'forbidden' areas - we got stung by someone locking a gate on the way down but for 3RMB pp it was all we spent for a beautiful, lengthy afternoon.

This was a true "bucket List" adventure for me and an amazing experience. I just looked in awe and wondered just how the chinese managed to build this structure . This section is one of the steepest parts and difficult to climb for an old bloke with dodgey knees. There are plenty of tourist keepsakes to buy. A truly great... More
