Mount Huangshan

If you would like to climb one mountain in China, let it be Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain). In southern Anhui Province, and inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1990, Huang Shan, with its 72 peaks, is China’s most famous mountain for scenic beauty. The mountain is known instead for its sea of clouds, strangely shaped rocks, unusual pine trees, and bubbling hot springs — four features that have mesmerized and inspired countless painters and poets for over 1,500 years. Whenever you visit, allow at least 2 days for the mountain, and another day or two for the attractions around Tunxi. This 4 day Huangshan tour is your absolutely best choice. It could be an extension tour from Shanghai or Beijing. It is a journey providing you with an approach to Huangshan in an all-round way.

Day 3 Huangshan B.L

Get up in early morning and view the sunrise if the weather is good. After that continue touring at the Flying-over Rock, its shape resembles a rock having just fallen from the sky. The rock is 12 meters high, 8 meters wide with a weight of 360 tons.

Then you will explore the Brightness Summit, it got its name because the hours of sunshine in the peak are longer than the other peaks because of its height. It is also one of the best places for viewing the sunrise and cloud-shrouded peaks of the mountain range. Then we will descend the Mountain by the Yungu Cable-car.

Drive to Yixian County to pay a visit to Xidi and Hongcun Ancient Villages (about 70 kilometers with 1.2 hours’ drive).  Xidi and Hongcun have about 400-500 years of history.
