Three Unique Breathtaking Landscapes 

The Great Wall built in 1404: The majestic and precipitous Great Wall built in the Ming Dynasty hovers over the towering mountain ridge, boasting spectacular landscape. It not only functioned as the north gate for guarding the capital, but also served as an important gateway for the protection of Ming tombs.
Lake water divides the Great Wall naturally: Huanghuacheng Great Wall is divided by lake water naturally and three sections are even submerged in the water, creating a unique landscape, which is the only of its kind in China.
Chestnut Garden of the Ming Dynasty: The ancient chestnut trees with twisted roots and gnarled branches stand in different shapes, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. In the Ming Dynasty, soldiers guarding the city spent some time in cultivating, and harvested a large area of chestnut garden. After years of suffering, the weather-beaten still have deep roots and luxuriant leaves, which is the only humanistic wonder in Beijing.
