Mount Huangshan known in the west as Yellow Mountain features diverse imposing peaks with 77  of them exceeding an altitude of 1,000m. The allure of this UNESCO World Heritage Site is characterized by the four wonders, respectively, odd-shaped pines, rare rock formation, seas of clouds and crystal-clear hot springs. Mount Huangshan can be divided into distinct areas namely, Beihai Scenic Area, Xihai Scenic Area, Songgu Scenic Area, Yungu Scenic Area, Yuping Scenic Area, Baiyun Scenic Area and Hot Spring Scenic Area. The guarantee is that each area will provide unprecedented adventures and views.

A popular Chinese saying, expressed by geographer Xu Xiake, goes: “It is not worth seeing other mountains if you have been to the Five Great Mountains, and it is not worth seeing the Five Great Mountains if you have been to Mount Huang”. Other than the great splendor of Mount Huangshan this city was once the ancient region of Huizhou and is immersed in ancient Hui culture. The Hui influence flows through the city and is visible in the refreshing architecture, elegant ornaments, and tantalizing delicacies.

Day 2

MT HUANGSHAN

After breakfast, you will set off on your excursion to Visit Mount Huangshan. 黄山 Huángshān /hwung-shan/ huang means 'yellow' and shan means 'mountain(s)'. The mountain got its name because the area was renamed after the legendary Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) in 747 AD. We will use the Yungu cable car located at the Back Mountain/Eastern Route on Huangshan Mountain, and the up station is very close to Beginning to Believe Peak, Lion Peak, and Beihai Hotel. It is worthy to note that the Yellow Mountain is believed to be the place where the Yellow Emperor, the mythical ancestor of the Chinese, lived, refined precious medicines and became a supernatural being.

Day 3

MT HUANGSHAN

A trip to Huangshan wouldn't be complete without a visit to the ancient villages. To end your trip we will visit Hongcun Ancient Village and Xidi Ancient Village. Xidi Village is known for its unique and elegant wooden houses: prettified walls preventing rain infiltration, black tiles recording the history of the town, decorative gate towers standing for the particular flavor of the architecture. The peaceful village of Hongcun is dubbed “the ancient village in Chinese paintings”, and Oscar-winning film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was filmed there. Many of the buildings in Hongcun date back to the Song Dynasty (A.D. 960 - 1279). Once your trail tales are completed you will get ready for your transfer to the train station.
