Built along the mountains, the Huangyaguan Great Wall is a must-visit destination for travellers who seek quietude amidst lush greenery.
Huangyaguan Great Wall is known as the miniature of the Great Wall in China. It is located 28km north of Tianjin. The steps are very high since the mountain is sloppy in some sections. While walking along the wall it’s better not to look down, you will certainly feel dizzy at the sight!
Although this wall was originally built in 557AD, it was repaired for the second time with brick battlements under the supervision of Qi Qiguang. In addition, different forms of water towers were built along the wall for the distribution of water and it also served as a reservoir to supply water in an emergency.
Any Tianjin service apartment the likes of Somerset International Building Tianjin would be able to direct you in the right direction to reach the Huangyaguan Great Wall. If not, you can simply take a bus at Tianjin Hebei Bus Station to Jixian.
Huangyaguan Great Wall Marathon
What is more exciting about this annual marathon is that it takes place along the Great Wall. The runners have to make a strenuous effort since the course is difficult. However, running through a stunning countryside and farm scenery would help take the edge off.
