Take this rare opportunity to see a unique section of the Great Wall at Huangyaguan, the section of the Great Wall that is nearest to Tianjin.

Traveling by coach from the pier, it's a 2 1/2 hour scenic drive through North China's countryside to the Huangyaguan Great Wall. Huangyaguan, meaning "Yellow Cliff Pass", lies on a steep and abrupt mountain ridge, and is thus named from the yellowish hills and rocks nearby.

Originally constructed in 556 A.D., it was repaired for the first time during the Ming Dynasty with bricks, and for a second time in 1985.

The Huangyaguan Great Wall is considered to be a wonderful miniature representation of the entire Great Wall as it holds the greatest variety of features. This includes various forms of water towers erected along the wall here, including the largest tower of the entire Great Wall, the "Phoenix Tower", and the most unique "Eight Diagram Pass Castle". During your visit, you may want to take time to climb up the towers and enjoy the rugged beauty of the landscape below.

Following your visit to the Huangyaguan Great Wall, you will transfer to a local restaurant where you will be treated to a traditional Chinese lunch. Afterwards, you'll rejoin your coach for the return 2-hour drive back to the ship.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate walking and there are some steps to negotiate. There are a significant number of stairs for those who elect to climb the towers. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
