Day 1Great Wall Hiking Day Tour From Huanghuacheng To Xishuiyu

7:30 Pick up from your hotel.

9:30 – 13:30 Hiking from Huanghuacheng to Xishuiyu Great Wall

The adventure begins at Zhuangdaokou village where you ascend via a hilly trail westward to Xishuiyu.

The starting point is easily accessible. From the valley, you walk upwards through the stunning watchtowers. The track is dilapidated but easy to follow. The wall between the first and second tower is ruined. Due to overgrown bushes, you have to walk along the very edge of the wall, quite high above the ground. Take your time and enjoy the views.

Climbing up the fourth tower could be a bit scary, but very easy grips and safe. The sixth tower serves as a turning point for you. From here the left part of the wall can be seen clearly in front of you. In the right following, the wall falls rapidly to the lowest point and rises to the mountain peak. Turn left and keep walking you will reach the seventh tower.

The ninth tower was on the mountaintop and is totally weathered. From here the view is amazing! You will have spectacular panorama of Huanghuacheng, and the broken wall running underneath the water! Take it slow and enjoy the views. From here, the wall is too broken to walk safely, so you will take a short nature walk through the hilly trail to Xishuiyu village,

14:00 Have country-style lunch and have a break.

15:00 Drive back to your hotel.
