What you'll do
I love all parts of the Great Wall!! This time, we will explore one of my favorite sections-Huanghuacheng & Laked Great Wall! We’ll hike this unique & non-touristy section, starting off on a restored section and then up and down a mountain to visit an unrestored stretch, finish at a countryside restaurant near a scenic reservoir. The villager home made local meal after hiking when you need it. You will love it! Whole hiking part is approx. 3km, takes about 2-3 hours. There are three to four hiking routes of this section. We will take one of them. We are very flexible about either shorter or longer route! We will see the stunning views of the original Great Wall, view of the Wall meets water. Hiking through 500 years history with architect background experienced hiking guide (not general tour guide), gain wall backgrounds, stories, events and architectural references from unique perspective... We will avoid the tourist crowds and most likely we could have “the entire Wall” all to ourselves! I will also be your personal photographer and edit photos for you! We provide professional driver and nice private business car or van, make it easy & comfortable for you to get out of the city and directly to the Wall. We could pick-up & drop-off you at your hotel! We welcome all the guests, if you are a solo traveler, please contact me first, as this tour requires at least 2 persons.
