The Wall at HuangHuacheng is clearly not the most popular place. Our Hotel strongly advised us not to go there because "there is nothing there but just the Wall". And that's exactly what we where looking for after a lot of crowded days. The Wall at HuangHuacheng is second to none!! It's amazing it's beautiful it's breath taking. Unbelievable !... More

Something that you MUST see in your life. I spent about 5 hours on the Great Wall with a friend of mine and it was amazing. The view, the feeling while I was there is amazing! The freedom... no comment. It is a shame that thousands of people's life were sacrificed just for this monument, but it's still something unforgettable... More

We got there with a private car and driver from Beijing, which only cost us 800yuan for 5 people, which was much cheaper than booking a tour in the hostel. The driver let us out at a sign which says not open to the public, but apparently it is allowed to go up there. We went through a small village,... More

I think everybody come to this place will be agree that this is the best place to explore Great Wall. You can go to either side, but I suggest you to go to the right side, hike the wall, and you will be amazed !!

No crowds - in fact nobody else. A boat ride and a little walk alongside the reservoir and you're at the Wall. It's been heavily restored so is quite safe to climb - and you will climb because the steps are uneven and often high. The effort is really worth it, and if you're there on a clear day you... More

The wall is better if you walk it away from the crowds its a leg builder but well worth it and the photos get better the further you walk
