Everyone wants a thrilling and romantic and precious experience on the Great Wall. We made it happen for you today. Once upon a time, ancient soldiers garrisoned and camped on the beacon here, watching in the darkness for a possible enemy attack. They didn't get a good night's sleep. Today, you can sleep through the night, looking brightly at the moon and looking forward to the rising sun. Today, we have camping tents and sleeping bags for you to legally experience a certain day in history. We have everything ready for you. Please look forward to the enchanting sunrise tomorrow morning.
We'll leave Beijing at noon. Drive 2 hours to the peaceful Huanghuacheng. The Great Wall hovers above the ridge and surrounds the shores of Hao Ming Lake, offering a spectacular view. The lake naturally disconnects the Great Wall, forming a peculiar landscape of the Great Wall playing with water, water without the Great Wall. Camping on the Great Wall will be the highlight of the day!
The typical sunrise time is around 5 am in summer or 7 am in winter. You won't want to miss the moment. We'll return to Beijing in the morning.

"We had to book our trip with them last minute and they were awesome! We had a group of 20 young adults and everyone had an amazing time. The hike area was so beautiful and we got to hike for about 3 hours. They picked us up from your hotel, drove us to the wall, did the hike, provided dinner and breakfast, provided camping gear (which we didn’t have the pack with us- we camped near a village, so we pick up our gear there and carried it the 100 meters to the wall), camped on the wall, watched the sunrise and then they drove us back. They gave us a great student discount and our guide spoke English and was funny - Aaron is the best :) Seriously we could not be more pleased with how this experience turned out!"

At noon in summer or at 10 am in winter, your guide will pick you up from your hotel. You will head for Huanghuacheng (or Huanghua Great Wall). The drive usually takes 2 hours.
Since the lake breaks this section of the Great Wall into three segments naturally, its uniqueness might surprise you. This section is virtually unrestored and completely unspoilt, The Huanghuacheng Reservoir lies here, shaped like a curved moon. You will have the opportunity to sit on the Great Wall, enjoying the breathtaking 360 view of mountains and beyond, soak up the perfect weather and ponder upon how ancient warriors built this super long Great Wall and how the soldiers managed to march and fight in such conditions. The lakes were the perfect backdrop to the wall. you walk on it and simply do nothing else than admiring this world wonder.
We will go to the farm inn called "Times of the Ancient Pass" where we will have a gourmet country-style Chinese dinner. All the vegetables are planted here and all the poultry are raised here locally.
