Owner description: Located near a lake and a reservoir, this part of the Wall is called Yellow Flower Fortress and is a good place for hiking.Huanghuacheng Section of the Great Wall is a resort with mountains, lakes and theancient Great Wall. There are very few people to be found here, but it is becomingpopular with hikers.There is a lake and a crescent shaped reservoir nearby. And the lake breaks this sectionof the Great Wall into three segments naturally. Part of the wall is under water and becomes submerged at high tide. So the Huanghuacheng Great Wall is nicknamed "Water Great Wall".The scenery here is unique and will surprise you.

Fantastic opportunity to walk the wall away from crowds. We had it to ourselves pretty much, walking N from the road. Tedious 2-hour drive from Beijing was the only detractor.

...that's what we were told this section was called, because there is a part of it, where we started, that lunges steeply down the valley to a lake/reservoir and back out steeply up the next hillside. I found out later that the guards didn't actually walk along the wall to patrol it but rather were stationed in the garrison buildings. Some planted crops at the foot of the wall. It's definitely a nice section of the wall, and not as steep as Mutianyu which requires handrails to help you get up. Wear flat hiking shoes and bring lots of water. Don't expect toilets anywhere outside of the city.

Our gudie, Peter Zhao, brouhgt us through a farmland, to climb a ladder to get to this part of the wall which is still mostly in ruin. My children aged 8 to 14 wandered happily on the floor part despite the wall part has all crumbled. The guard stations are mostly intact. It is very adventurous for my children since you actually have to CLIMB the wall. There is a man-made lake, while beautiful, it adds to the height of the view. It was a bit scary for me. I remained motionless for a while and started walking once I got used to the height.

Huanghuacheng Great Wall is one of the least known sections of the Great Wall near Beijing, but it one of the best sections to visit. It is not well known because getting to this place is a little difficult. There is no direct bus that goes here, but you can visit http://www.greatwall-of-china-beijing.com/huanghua-great-wall.html for more information and directions.

If you like beautiful scenery, mountains, lakes, and most importantly – no crowds – than this is the place for you! The scenery is spectacular any time of the year you visit!
