The busy travel season starts in May, since the first to the third of the month mark the Labor Day holiday. During this time, many people travel to Yellow Mountain, where you can appreciate wild flowers such as azaleas, along with the greenery of the mountain. Hotels and travel accommodations are in great demand, so make your reservations in advance. See our Huangshan Tours.
