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 & Tours

Huanghuacheng (literally meaning "Yellow Flower City") Great Wall (黄花城), about 60 km north of downtown Beijing, is one of the most ruined sections of the wall in Beijing. It has become popular with hikers in recent years. This section of the great wall is about 1000 meters long and connecting Juyongguan Pass Great Wall and Badaling Great Wall in the west and Jiankou Great Wall and Mutianuyu Great Wall in the east. Now it is a quite challenge to climb the wall since it is overgrown and treacherous.

Huanghuacheng was an area littered with many villages in Yuan Dynasty. Later in Ming Dynasty it turned into a rich and prosperous area due to the construction of the Great Wall at Huanghuacheng as strategically important Benzhenguan Pass.

There is a story behind the building of Huanghuacheng Great Wall. Its construction began in 1575, during the Ming Dynasty and General Cai Kai was in charge of the entire works. It was said that it took many years to finish the the construction. When General Cai Kai went to the capital and reported to the emperor his successful task, he was put to death at once! Some jealous ministers had told Emperor Wanli at that time that the General Cai Kai had spent too much money and the construction of the wall was poor.

The emperor was so unhappy with these false reports, he ordered Cai's immediate execution. Later the emperor sent a trusted aid to check Cai's Wall. The aid went back and reported to the the emperor that Huanghuaheng Great Wall was solid with the finest workmanship. Sorry for his hasty in putting the death to Cai, Wanli sent people to build a tomb and memorial stele in memory of the loyal general.

The Emperor Wanli also wrote the two characters "Jin Tang", meaning "solid and firm", carved on the face of a huge rock below the wall, showing the wall was firm and solid. So the wall is sometimes called Jintang Great Wall.

There are two starting points to hike or see Huanghuacheng Great Wall - Huanghuacheng Reservoir and Jintang Lake respectively 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 by Jintang Lake. This section is just 2km northeast of Xishuiyu Village ( Huanghuacheng Great Wall at the reservoir ), a popular starting point for hiking Huanghuacheng Great Wall, known as Jintang Huanghuacheng Great Wall since this section of Huanghuacheng Great Wall is cut through by Jintang Lake.

Jintang lake is a good spot where you can take a photogenic view of the Great Wall higher hugging the mountain. Crossing the dam over Jintang Lake, you may start your climb up the Wall. At the time of my writing, Jintang Huanghuacheng Great Wall is still unrestored and not officially open to the public. You will be held responsible for your safety and suggested to apply for your travel insurance for your coverage of injury or accident.
