A visit to the best known places of this wild wall that stretches across the northern part of this country, often becomes a painful pilgrimage among a massive influx of tourists in the heat and on almost completely remodeled terrain .
Anyway, if you want to know the Great Wall for real. With hardly any remodeling, no mass tourists swarming the place, no guides with flags to follow as a flock, even without paying admission. Well, if none of that is what you are looking for, I recommend a place where you are going to open your eyes to admire this human creation in the most authentic and truthful way.
It is the area of the wall that extends through Huanghua. A town just over 50 kilometers north of the Chinese capital. We walked around and only found another group similar to ours of about five people.
