On the way back to Beijing, my friends said, "hey, do you want to see a section of the Great Wall that's under water?" And I said, "okay." It isn't exactly underwater. It's more like the wall was once a bridge over sections of the lake and has since collapsed. It's a very pretty area after a long walk through... More

Get a different perspective on the Great Wall from the lakeside. However it is quite difficult to get to as you drive through some villages and around windy rough roads. There are no public transport to get there either. In my opinion it's not really worth the commute. Since you would have already spent a few hours on the Great... More

On our arrival in Beijing we had a free day before joining our 17 day Group Tour and wanted to spend an extra day visiting the Great Wall of China, before leaving the UK I trawled and researched the net and Tripadvisor and came across Mr. Wang Ping private tours: <privatetaxibeijing@gmail.com> Ping as he likes to be called suggested that...

A fair bit of walking, and a bit of a pain to get to. Mostly restored. DO NOT go way off the tracks unless it's directly towards a bit of wall that you can see, otherwise you'll be left wandering through the bush for ages like we were. Not as good as Jiankou, but there is water I suppose.

It is rare to see the Great Wall accompanied by a lake. The portion of the Water Great Wall which I went to was located beside a small resort village called Xishuiyu. Since this is a resort village, there are places to eat and rest if you are tired. There are also maps available at the ticket gate (if I... More

This section of the Great Wall is named for the sea of yellow wildflowers that bloom in the late spring and early summer, giving sudden exhilarating life to this aged portion of the Wall - “Huanghua” in Chinese means “yellow flower”.it is very special – part of the Wall is underwater!Seen from the dam of the reservoir, the stately sunken...

We wandered around in March. It's nothing to special. If you are one time in Beijing and want to see the Great Wall don't choose this part.

If you are at least a little bit fit and can negotiate a ladder (I did it at the age of 57), go to this part of the Great Wall. We went here with a tour guide and were blown away by the whole experience. Our guide Farah, picked us up at our hotel and stayed with us until she... More
