We arranged for a driver to take us to Huanghuacheng. We were a party of 5 and only met 12 other people for the entire 3 hours that we hiked!!! It was so peaceful and serene and we had an amazing time. The views were awesome and we were so glad that we chose this part of the wall to... More

We took a taxi to this little visited section of the wall and walked on the wall for c. 2 hours. We had it to ourselves as few people actually walk the wall. The weather was murky but this added to our enjoyment of the experience.

Stayed here before beginning a 450km bike ride. It was a wonderful introduction to the history of the Great Wall. The maze and inner courtyards are particularly lovely, but it's hard to get over being on the Wall!

I'm really hesitate to write this because I would hate for Huanghuacheng to become Badaling the next time I'm in Beijing.... but this is an awesome place to see the great wall. You get all of the beauty of the wall with none of the crazy crowds. It's also the only place where you can see the wall cross a... More

I have been to Great Wall several times. Huanghuacheng is definitely the best place to see the great wall when you don't have much time to travel very far away from the city, and when you want to avoid touristic sites of the wall. Hire a driver to take you this place and you may stop to several fruit gardens... More

Seeing all the nature, all the great wall, as a one of the 7 wonders of the world is amazing, being there and imaging how that happened, and the division of the families for protection, is a very good trip and experience.

Different from other Great Walls, this place has amazing view of Great Wall winding not only on top of peaks but also going through a beautiful lake. Plus, the local food is also delicious

Visited last May. We had already been to the main part of the wall at Mutianyu - this was an added bonus to go to a second part. It was stunning. Nowhere near as busy at the main part of the wall. It was a totally different landscape - the terrain was much more rugged and the wall was very... More
