Huanghuacheng is a village located in the north of China. The town is famous for being close in proximity to a section of the Great Wall that was built during the Ming Dynasty. The town is split into parts by lakes with some parts even being immersed in water, making it unique from other sections of the Wall. It’s also named after the sea of yellow flowers that bloom in the summer, “huang hua” in Chinese.
Although some parts of the hike consist of steep inclines, the hike will not be very difficult as we will be taking an easier hiking route. We also suggest you wear comfortable clothing for the hike, such as sportswear and sneakers.
