The Great Wall at Huanghua

The Great Wall at Huanghua used to be the closest you could get to the "genuine" experience, within a short distance from Beijing, only 60 km from the capital. This section is undergoing some restoration work and could be off-limits to hikers. So check before you head out here.

If you get to Huanghua, be prepared for a somewhat difficult and rough hike. There are no handrails at all and some portions involve a very steep ascent or descent. Some sections are still very "wild" with loose stones and debris, so watch your footing.

Since this section of the Wall is being renovated, there are still no cable cars, chair lifts, or other amenities to help get you up the top. If you are traveling with little ones and grandparents, this might not be a good choice as the climb is a steep one and might be too difficult for them.

Check out this video taken in 2006 by Felix L'Amour to see what it was like.
