Huangshan Mountain tour
Sea of Cloud in Huangshan

Huangshan Scenic Area (黄山 Huángshān The Yellow Mountain) is located in the southern part of Anhui Province. Xu Xiake (徐霞客, 1587—1641), a noted Chinese geologist and traveler who traveled to Huangshan twice, praised that: Visitors don’t need to see other mountains after traveling to “The Five Mountains”, and they don’t need to see other 4 mountains after traveling to Huangshan Mountain. Huagnshan’s combination of strange pines, oddly-shaped rocks, seas of cloud, and hot springs make it rank the first place of China’s ten top famous mountains. This Huangshan day tour will take you to visit the highlights of Huangshan Mountain including round way cable cars.
