Located 29 km northwest of the city Huairou,60km to the city of Beijing ,Huanghuacheng is one of the few sections of the Great Wall which is linked by mountains and rivers in Beijing.The name Huanghuacheng(YellowFlowerFortress) comes from the yellow flowers which bloom luxuriantly in mid-summer when all the houses and cottages are submerged into the boundless flowers.There are three well-known scenic highlights here . The first is the Great Wall .Constructed in the Ming dynasty ,the Great Wall is hovering on the mountain ridge with high and wider amparts, intact parapet sand sturdy beacon towers.
