It is incredible to think a Chinese Emperor was able to engage the thousands of people needed to construct this wall. To be able to construct 5000 kms up and down mountains is unbelievable. It is hard enough to walk along to build it must have been hard. Do not forget it is built out of hewn mountain rock, is... More

I've been doing research for a while which part of the wall to visit, and at the end decided to choose Huanghuacheng. There wasn't a lot of information about this place and it's not as popular as some other parts of the wall. I was a little bit nervous that it will be a waste of time, but it really... More

I booked a private tour with Lily through Viator, guide and driver were amazing, very knowledgeable. The Great Wall and scenery were stunning. It was a foggy autumn day which added a mysterious feel and drew only few visitors. The hike on the wall leads across a mountain, offering scenic views of rural valleys and a reservoir. I recommend good... More

Pro: Very few people visit this section. I went on weekdays. Met only about 10-15 people visiting. The view is breathtaking. It is also the only section with double wall. The entrance fee is 5 RMB. Con: no public transport. Need to hire a car. No wheelchair accessible.

We stayed overnight at the Summer Palace to avoid the traffic in Beijing and were picked up there by Wild Great Wall to go to Huanghuacheng to hike. Its about 45 minutes to an hour to get there which meant we did not have to get up before dawn. In fact as the hie is about 4 hours long, have... More

The drive out from Beijing takes around 2 hours and is quite rural. The beauty of the wall here is the stunning landscape with high mountain ridges overlooking a pristine lake. Parts of the wall are off limits due to degradation but there is a relatively short and stepp climb through 3 watch towers. The view from the top watch... More

This is definitely the area of the wall to go to. It was a clear day and no smog which is amazing for Beijing so we had amazing views. It's tough in places so some hiking experience would be good. Would recommend a guide to get there or a private vehicle but the wall itself can be done without.
