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.

This part of the wall is amazing. It's a proper hike to get to the top with very uneven but well kept steps. The view is amazing and you can see out onto the wild wall, it's only a shame you can't go further and...More

Hot and humid. Stairs that were very steep and uneven. Crowded. Still, it was worth every minute. People were walking up at different paces, and were very friendly and encouraging to those who were having a tough time. There is a reason the Great Wall...More

Another check mark off our bucket list. I would pack a lunch and stay there as long as possible. The views are outstanding.

A beautiful view if you decide to be brave and take the walk. If you have heart problems, stop at a lower level, don't venture to the top. Every level had a beautiful view. We were told that the stairs were built so that war...More

The feeling is incredible! Steps, steps and more steps, but the view, it's worth it. Prepare yourself for at least 4 hours of climbing.

Amazing experience. Quite costly but worth it to see how grand the wall is. Definitely requires a level of fitness if you are planning on climbing as some of the steps are very large.

Not realy. It's very far from HuangHua Cheng to MuTian Yu, the condition of the wall there is not good, it can take you about 10 hours easily, and the trail is dangerous. It's not recommended.
