Dear Ms. Liang, Our guided tour of Beijing finishes today and my husband and I wish to thank Barrin, our Beijing tour guide, our Beijing driver and your company for what has been the most memorable holiday that we have ever had.

We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Huanghuacheng Great Wall

Huanghuacheng Great Wall MapHuanghuacheng Great Wall Key Words:

Officially not permitted to hike
Visiting Area: Huanghuacheng Reservoire Section and Jintang Lake Section

Hiking Level: intermediate
Distance: 80km from the downtown Beijing

After lunch, we go on with our 5-day Great Wall hike trip for our third stop - the Huanghuacheng Great Wall. The 40km mountain road drive takes 40 minutes from Changping County to the Jiuduhe Township where the main two sections of the Huanghuacheng Great Wall are located.

Actually Huanghuacheng Great Wall is officially banned for the tourist hike either to protect the wild section of the Great Wall or prevent possible risk of hiking the uncleared section. People tend to taste "a forbidden fruit". So still some brave tourists, led by local farmers or tour organizors, come to the Huanghuacheng Great Wall for a wild hike.

The Huanghuacheng Great Wall used to be one of the strongest wall in Beijing. It was built by General Cai in Ming Dynasty ( 1368-1644). Its construction took many years to accomplish. Some traitorous officials scolded that he had spent so much money in building the wall. The emperor was very angry with General Cai. Later he ordered General beheaded!

Years later, the emperor asked his ministers to check the wall and realized that he had treated General wrongly. The wall was extremely fortified. The emperor asked the craftman to carve two Chinese characters - "Jin Tang" by the wall, literally meaning "Gold Soup" - the firm and strong. The Huangcheng Great Wall is often called "Jintang Great Wall". The lake by the wall is called Jintang Lake.

Huanghuacheng Great Wall is about 12km long with 49 towers and 5 terraces, connecting Badaling Great Wall in the west and Jiankou Great Wall in the east. Now it is a quite challenge to climb the wall in some parts. There have been no stone steps or no smooth path found on some parts in this section f Great Wall in Beijing. At the time of my writing, Huanghuacheng Great Wall is not yet officially opened to travelers. Those who hike this section of the Wall have to be responsible for their own safety.

There are two starting points to hike or see Huanghuacheng Great Wall - Huanghuacheng Reservoir and Jintang Lake which both cut through the Wall. The reservoir is called Huanghuacheng Reservoir with some parts of the Huanghuacheng Great Wall submerged under it, hence the nickname of Huanghuacheng Water Great Wall for this section. By the reservoir is Xishuiyu Village, so Huanghuacheng Great Wall at the reservior is often called Xishuiyu Great Wall or Xiaoxihu ( Little West Lake ). Most people come to Huanghuacheng Great Wall ( reservoir section ) to see the submerged great wall.

Huanghuacheng Great Wall at the Reservior ( also known as Xiaoxihu Great Wall or Xishuiyu Great Wall)

Today we start to visit Huanghuacheng Great Wall Reservior Section. We just walk along the walking trail skirting the Huanghuacheng Reservoir with the Great Wall hanging on the mountains surrounding the reservoir. So parts of the Huanghuacheng Great Wall are submerged under it with stunning view, a great place for a holiday outing - picnic, boating and walking.

We meet a lot of local holiday makers walking around the reservoir. It is a great fun, another kind of mountain hike. Many young people are practising team building there. If you feel tired, you may take a speed boat back to the entrance.
