This is NOT for tourist. There are no tourist things to do around here. If you want to see the Great Wall of China, this is as authentic as you can ever get. Be equipped and be prepared to trek, that means, the right gear, shoes, clothing, water and food. For non-trekkers please note that this is going to be... More

I have visited the Huangya pass Great Wall in Tianjin for several times. It is an amazing place to go and is not as crowded as other hot sites in China. I would highly recommend it to the visitors who want to see real old walls. It was made hundreds of years ago, but some others (mojority section of Beijing... More

I wanted to take the kids to the Great Wall but I was weary of crowds. I had seen so many pictures full of people where it was difficult to enjoy the visit. So we went to Huangyaguan on a Sunday in July. It was exceptional. We practically had the place all for ourselves. The kids just loved it. It's... More

It was more than I expected, cause lack of time we couldn't go far but it was more than enough to feel the spirit of the place! My new dreams is to go back there!

In December the place wasn't too crowded, I enjoyed half a day climbing to one side of the valley. Avoid visiting during public holidays. Not only during hot days take enough drinking water with you.

Was really surprised by how bad the drive in was. The road in is 1 lane so it took us about 90 minutes after leaving the highway; being an attraction I would have thought access would be easier. We arrived 2 hours before closing so our time was limited; we only got past tower 3 of the 10 towers at... More

It's a lot quieter than Badaling. At Badaling, you see a lot more heads than walls, while the view is gorgeous here. Although the transportation isn't that convenient.

A very pleasant day spent on the wall. No crowds, like there are in Mutianyu. Just fresh air, exercise and a chance to see some great scenery. Looking forward to going back there in the warmer weather.

Nothing much attractive but just walk on the wall...wall is maintained very well. Students can get discount on tickets by showing university student card to ticket counter. Have a nice trip :)

Prepare oneself for a day of high activities, the Great Wall of China at Huangyaguan is a spectacular site to visit on a sunny day. For visitors coming through Tianjin via cruise ship, this is a must visit attraction. The 2-3 hours drive from Tianjin to Huangyaguan on super modern highway is a joy to experience the thoroughfares of 21st... More
