Welcome to Zhuàngdàokǒu
Zhuàngdàokǒu (撞道口), a small village just over the hill to the east of Huánghuā Chéng, has access to a rarely visited and completely unrestored section of ‘Wild Wall’. It’s also possible to hike over to Huánghuā Chéng on a restored section from here, although few people do this, which is surprising, considering how straightforward it is. The ‘wild’ section, towards the reservoir at Shuǐ Chángchéng, is crumbling away and overgrown with small trees and shrubs, but it is still possible to hike along. Just take extreme care.
