Although it was National Day week, we went there about 7:00 AM and we almost had the Great Wall all to ourselves. It is a heck of a climb, although very beautiful and well preserved. I recommend taking the shuttle to the top and walking down, and up and down to the bottom. The last part was the final descent... More

Once in a lifetime experience. Really recommend this. The facilities like toilets are horrible and not much to eat but the race was very well organized and they really looked after us

I stayed here as part of the photography team for the Great Wall Marathon. It's very basic. The rooms were ok, probably a 1-star as far as quality goes, but it's typical for the area I believe. The grounds are amazing and staff are friendly but don't speak English - Google Translate comes in handy here and around the village.

The Huangyaguan Great Wall can be reached from Tianjin city in approximately 2 hours by motor coach. The trip is mostly on ultra-modern super highway with some local roads near the Great Wall. Once arrive at the site, there are 2 different ways to enjoy the Huangyaguan, simply walk through the fort-like structure near the parking lot and try to... More

Amazing experience. If you are anywhere nearby I suggest you take the time to visit. The wallis a tough walk, so you will need to be prepared for many steps and lots of miles. Well worth it for the view and to experience this treasure.

On this trip we arrived via cruise ship at the modern cruise terminal near Tianjin China for an over-night stay. Most of our fellow cruise-mates had opted to travel to Beijing to see the Great Wall sections just north of that city (2.5 to 3 hrs. drive time from cruise terminal to Beijing plus 1 hr.+ drive to Great Wall)....

i come to this session for the first time in April/13 for the marathon, and what a view. the wall here is not as "refurbished" as other sessions closer to Beijing, and by not being so much visited / maintained you can have a very good flavour on what the wall is and how hard is to reach the top,...

The section of the Great Wall near the village of Huangyaguan is at least two hours from Beijing and is therefore not normally visited by tourists from overseas. However in 1999 the first Great Wall Marathon occurred and it incorporated this section of the Great Wall. Since then thousands of athletes from throughout the world have experienced this unique event... More
