Conquer preserved sections of China’s greatest man-made structure as you hike the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng. Steeped in history and surrounded by yellow wild flowers, this section boasts some of the wall’s most photogenic views.

 
About this Journey

Beginning at the sea and stretching more than one thousand miles to the unforgiving desert frontiers of China’s west, The Great Wall is a lasting symbol of China’s imperial might. The section at Huanghuacheng is a photographer’s paradise, boasting stunning views of both man made and natural scenery, this part of the wall is also known as “the First Pass” for its strategic importance and as the natural protector of the nearby Ming Emperor Tombs. Spend the morning hiking the restored section of the wall before stopping for a picnic lunch and preparing yourself to tackle some more of the wall in the afternoon.

What we love
  • Learning the unique history of the Huanghuacheng section of The Great Wall
  • Enjoying one of the world's most picturesque picnic lunches atop a watchtower
  • Letting your WildChina guide lead the way along the wall
