During September, the maple leaves are turning red. Climbing the mountain and enjoying the unique scenery of legendary pines, picturesque rocks, and a sea of clouds during this time is a lot of fun. After that, enjoy the hot springs for a relaxing experience. Mid-autumn day comes in September, and is when you can taste delicious moon cakes and hear beautiful stories and learn about the local culture. See our Huangshan Tours.

Hi - I just sent an email - I forgot to mention - it would be nice to travel to Huangshan mountain and watch the sunrise when the mountains are at their greenest? Does this make May or September a better time to go? (Middle of May or middle of September)?
