Words can't explain the experience of walking the Great Wall. To experience one of the Wonders of the World ,the vastness and size of the Wall, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The steps up the wall are very very steep , and you would need relatively good fitness to get past the first tower, but anyone can at... More

I visited the Huang Ya Guan 黄崖关(长城)section of the great wall with 5 friends from Tianjin city in April 2017. Although Huang Ya Guan pass is listed as one of the sights to visit whilst in Tianjin, please note it is actually closer to Beijing than it is to Tianjin. When it came to planning our trip to Huang Ya... More

We went early in the morning about 7:30 and chose to start at the top of the mountain (recommended) for a little more cost. It kicked my butt still but it was beautiful and at that time, literally, no other visitors.

We rode a horse to get to the top and walk on the wall. What an experience! Once there we walked along two sections of the wall before deciding to walk our way back to the valley. It was a great experience.

If you can time your visit, then time it to when the Yin Yang Music Festival HAPPENS. Was a trip I will never forget, a balance of ancient Chinese surroundings and electronic music till sunrise.

This is NOT for tourist. There are no tourist things to do around here. If you want to see the Great Wall of China, this is as authentic as you can ever get. Be equipped and be prepared to trek, that means, the right gear, shoes, clothing, water and food. For non-trekkers please note that this is going to be... More

I wanted to take the kids to the Great Wall but I was weary of crowds. I had seen so many pictures full of people where it was difficult to enjoy the visit. So we went to Huangyaguan on a Sunday in July. It was exceptional. We practically had the place all for ourselves. The kids just loved it. It's... More
