I leaned some good items reading the reviews here. I went by taxi to the Hebei bus station, took the bus and then hired a driver for the next 4 hours. Make sure to go to the upper ticket booth for the Great Wall, it is away from the main tourist area. I arrived "early" and only saw only about... More

About 2 hours outside of central Tianjin, so we hired a taxi to take up there, wait for us, and then bring us back. Much less crowded and touristy than other popular spots in Beijing and is a lovely walk along the wall. You can take a bus/kart up to the top for RMB30 and then walk 'down'. however this... More

Reached here by a private taxi from Tianjin (500 Y round trip for half day). There were hardly any visitors (no foreign tourists). 50 Y for entry ticket (no lines). Tip - should start very early in ththe morning. July was extremely hot and be prepared for countless number of steps. There were vendors selling water and ice cream along... More

We had to take a taxi out of the way to the bus station, take the bus, bargain with taxis to take us up to the entrance and back down again to the bus station, BUT.....the experience there was wonderful! It's totally worth it! We had the Wall practically to ourselves. We were able to take all sorts of pictures... More

I liked it, has all the views, and is a part of the Great wall of China. I arrived from the Tianjin Cruise Terminal.. takes about 3 hrs to get there. We got there a little before they closed the gates. The food is very expensive.. cup noodles $10, a plate with rice and your choice of meat is about... More

I was thoroughly happy to have chosen this site. In the month of February, it had little snow also however, it was not a problem. Enjoyed walking up and walking down. As long as you are careful, and cautious, its not bad at all. View from the top is amazing even. Must visit.

This part of the Great Wall is not as crowded as the ones in Beijing. It is about 2 hours drive from the Tianjin city and would recommend anyone who is in tianjin.

My family (husband and two small children 4 and 2) lived in China for 2 years. We visited the Wall in Huangya Pass twice. Once with a visiting family and then the other for the Great Wall Marathon. It is steep and uneven! So watch your step. Any part of the wall is filled with beauty. My kids loved running... More

I've visited this section of the wall quite a few times--I love it. I always take visiting friends and family members to this one and they love it too. Beijing sections are incredibly touristy and crowded, as are the ones in Shanhaiguan/Qinhuangdao. I've never seen crowds here (save for the marathon in May). There are portions of this wall that...
