Afterwards, driving about 1.5 hours to have lunch in a nice non-tourist restaurant near the Great Wall. Then start the 2-3 hours hiking at Huanghuacheng Water Wall, the only section of China’s Great Wall that runs alongside, and is partially submerged in a lake. Usually, Badaling, Mutianyu and Simatai come to mind when one thinks of the Great Wall. These sections have become hot tourist spots after being renovated. But Huanghuacheng is largely unrestored since the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), this segment is one of prettiest yet least crowded near Beijing, making it great for hiking.
