Great Wall at Huanghuacheng Tours

Uncrowded and off the beaten path, the segment of the Great Wall of China at Huanghuacheng is popular among hikers who want to experience the wilder side of the wall without investing the time required by some of the longer and more strenuous Great Wall walks. It is also the only waterside portion of the wall open to visitors, with the Xishuiyu Reservoir seen on either side of the wall.

While some parts of Huanghuacheng have been restored to what they may have looked like when built during the early Ming Dynasty, much of this portion of the wall remains in ruins. The reward for making the steep and uneven climb are the amazing views over the surrounding countryside and reservoir.

Since Huanghuacheng isn't quite as easily accessible from Beijing as other parts of the wall, visitors can book private transportation to and from the city with time included to hike independently. Guided hikes are also a popular option for the assistance provided in some of the steeper areas. Travelers can also opt to combine a visit to Huanghuacheng with stops at other parts of the wall, or, for a truly unique experience, cruise to the wall in a 1930s-style sidecar from the city.

Practical Info

This portion of the wall is located 43 miles (70 km) outside of Beijing.

Did You Know? The Great Wall at Huanghuacheng is nicknamed the Great Wall Under the Water, because three sections are submerged in the Xishuiyu Reservoir.
