This is my favourite rebuilt section of the Great Wall. Unlike most of the sections closer to Beijing, both times we have been it has not been busy. We were able to hike the wall at an enjoyable pace, and take pictures without trying to accommodate crowds of people.

We visited the Great Wall with a touring party from Australia. If you think you have an idea of it without visiting , think again! Nothing prepares you for the size, engineering feat, numbers of visitors, etc. etc. For a start the steepness in certain areas, the different sized steps of every step, the narrowness, the lack of pavement type...

Great place, very gorgeous views, quite tourist trap shops at the base. Be prepared to climb, the steps are at least 1 foot in height. Expect a workout. Very busy,

I liked this visit to the Great Wall more than that in Ba Da Ling, close to Beijing. Less crowded, better kept. Some parts are very steep, with high steps. On the way to/from Tianjin one can visit a small but interesting natural resort.

Stunning attraction. This part of the wall has been very well restored and is a must see for all tourists visiting the area. Great views and good exercise. Also a great place to take a breath of clean fresh air.

An adventure to reach from central Tianjin, but once you're there it's worth the trip. The wall snakes upwards from both sides of the ticket office and is especially steep if you turn right and cross the road. Less ambitious people can get a decent taste (and good pictures) by turning left and ascending until you're tired. The courtyard with... More

Visited the Great Wall at Huangyaguan during mid May as part of my participation in the Great Wall Marathon 2015. It is a breath taking section of the wall in good repair with stunning views. Simply amazing

Went in Mid Appril 2015 and the weather was mid 20C. The day we went had "cloudy" weather. Going to the Great Wall is a must do when in China. However I was warned that the Great Wall near Beijing was very crowded. With a ride from uncle, We found very little people there. You can have the whole wall... More

Went to Huangyaguan from Tianjin. The trip there was an adventure but went surprisingly smoothly (even negotiating for the cab driver to wait at the wall). Definitely worth a visit!
