The Lakeside Great Wall, as it is called in English, is a beautiful and scenic section of the Great Wall, perfect if you want to enjoy a good walk or hike away from the crowds--which is pretty rare in Beijing. If you have time, I would recommend seeing this and also a section such as Mutianyu or Badaling. The Mutianyu... More

After visiting Badaling, this part of the wall is so peaceful and quiet and not many people around pushing and shoving. The views were lovely and the scenery was to die for. I would love to visit this place again.

Wonderful place to visit. Awesome sight and to appreciate the difficulties of the terrain as well as the extremes of weather in the construction It is rightly one of the wonders of the world and needs to be on everyone's bucket list

This is one of the steeper climbs, the path is very steep but the views are worthwhile, amazing piece of architecture completed millennia ago.

It is incredible to think a Chinese Emperor was able to engage the thousands of people needed to construct this wall. To be able to construct 5000 kms up and down mountains is unbelievable. It is hard enough to walk along to build it must have been hard. Do not forget it is built out of hewn mountain rock, is... More

I've been doing research for a while which part of the wall to visit, and at the end decided to choose Huanghuacheng. There wasn't a lot of information about this place and it's not as popular as some other parts of the wall. I was a little bit nervous that it will be a waste of time, but it really... More
