    Full Itinerary:


    Exploring the Huanghuacheng Great Wall on foot is a thrilling and immersive experience.

    We’ll conveniently pick you up from your accommodation at 7:30 am, or a time that suits you, and embark on a wonderful journey to Huanghuacheng.

    Your adventure will kick off at Zhuangdaokou village, and from there, you’ll ascend westward to Xishuiyu through a hilly trail.

    This track, although a bit worn, is user-friendly and provides a unique, up-close look at the Great Wall. A bit of a climb is involved, but it’s all part of the experience, offering breathtaking views.

    From the valley, you’ll ascend through stunning watchtowers, experiencing parts of the wall that are time-worn but still magnificent.

    Imagine yourself walking along the very edge of the wall, high above the ground, surrounded by overgrown foliage, enjoying picturesque views that are sure to take your breath away.

    One exciting moment awaits as you climb the fourth tower.

    A 1.4 m step might seem a bit daunting, but it’s completely safe and easily manageable.

    From the sixth tower, the magnificent wall unfolds before your eyes, leading you towards the weathered ninth tower.

    The panoramic view from this point is simply amazing!

    Take your time to soak in the spectacular sight of Huanghuacheng and the wall descending into the water.

    Since some parts of the wall are too broken for safe walking, you’ll continue with a pleasant nature walk to Xishuiyu village.

    Awaiting you there is a delightful country-style lunch and a well-deserved break.
