Introduction of Huanghuacheng:
Huanghuacheng is the only lakeside Great Wall in Beijing. It is one of the top destinations for a Great Wall hiking tour. Visitors can also take a boat to appreciate the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng from a different angle. Located 45 miles (70 kilometers) away from Beijing city proper, it takes about 1.5 hours to get there by private car. When summer arrives in full bloom, the entire village below is awashed in a sea of yellow wild flowers ('yellow flower' is 'huanghua' in Chinese). Hence the village name Huanghuacheng (Huanghua City in English), and by turn the Great Wall section acquires its name. The construction commenced in 1404, two years before the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644) moved its capital to Beijing, and continued for 188 years.

Itinerary:
Meet your guide at the designated departure point and time, then head out on the road toward the Great Wall. The journey to the Huanghuacheng Great Wall entrance will be approximately 1.5-hours from Beijing. Upon arrival, hike approximately 2.5 mi (4 km) and hike back to the first watchtower. Enjoy this tranquil section of the wall with its majestic mountains as a backdrop. Take advantage of this striking area with its fifteen watchtowers, steep gradients offering an ever-changing perspective and the balance of wild forest with the best preserved section of the Great Wall. Hiking at Huanghuacheng Great Wall, see the gradual change from the restored areas of the wall near it and the deteriorated sections as you go further to the west. Observe how the watchtowers in this section have three to four embrasures versus the one or two their counterparts have in other sections. Note the varying shapes of the watchtowers, due to the varying terrain. Stop at the 3rd watchtower which is the best place to take in the views of the gorgeous sunset. At the end of the hike, return to your air-conditioned vehicle, then sit back, relax and enjoy the return to Beijing.

    Hello everyone! I recommend this tour, it was a really nice day and walk, it was only me, I didn't have a group, so the guide Joe was always with me inside the wall, being really nice, taking pictures for me in the best spots and helping me all the time! The sunset view is amazing, I had a really good experience!
