A fusion of human architectural prowess and natural defenses, Great Wall at Huanghuacheng provides a glimpse of the famous structure in a relatively unrestored state, with less tourist traffic than more famous sections. Explore this wild stretch of the wall as it climbs towering mountain hillsides and ridges next to a snaking reservoir, passing through dense forests along the way. You'll enjoy sweeping views over the surrounding countryside, including small villages and neighboring mountain peaks, as you trek across and beside the partially overgrown wall. Keep in mind that much of the wall here has not been restored, so be prepared for some rough stretches, and watch your step.

Our family including three kids used the Great Wall Adventure Club private tour, and climbed this section of the Wall in the summer of 2019 for a 4 hour hike. I had no idea the Yellow Flower City would be so beautiful, let alone the huge lake looking down from the Great Wall. Other places on the Great Wall can only see mountains, but only here you can see water and mountains. Highly recommend this Great Wall!
