Huffington Post Highlights the Great Wall Less Traveled

The Great Wall of China is one of the biggest highlights of China for most visiting the destination. With 5,500 miles of wall spanning across northern China, there are many parts of the wall you could visit. A recent article from the Huffington Post highlighted the Huangya Pass (or Huangyaguan), located approximately 59 miles east of Beijing. The article describes how this area of the wall is less crowded and the views are stunning. Huangyaguan translates to “Yellow Cliff Pass” and refers to the surrounding mountains and flora.

The Huangya Pass stretches approximately 26 miles, with many steps and steep inclines at parts. However, the effort is worth it, with the Huangya Fortress, an outdoor market selling exotic fruits and nuts, and other scenes that shouldn’t be missed. The Huangya Pass is also where the annual Great Wall Marathon is held.
