Overview
Huanghuacheng Great Wall more like secret place to visit, less people and less commercial, it is authentic Great Wall because Chinese government didn't restore it, Mutianyu or Badaling Great Wall very new and all rebuilt 30 years ago, full of tourists everyday and it will take about one and half hours line waiting for cable up and down, it is not Great Wall of China anymore, it is Great Wall of Chinese people, it is so hard to experience Great Wall and difficult to take amazing pictures because so many people on the Wall and push all the time. The slightly less famous Huanghuacheng section of the wall is 65 km from Beijing in Huanghuacheng Town. This 10,800-meter section of the wall is the strongest and most well built, with six forts guarding six passes, twelve beacon towers, and thirty-two watchtowers. Ming Dynasty General Cai Kai supervised its construction.
