5-Day Dynamic Huangshan Tour is a must!
My husband and I were in awe of the natural beauty of the Yellow Mountain. Our guide Phillip Tong, with China Highlights, gave us an exceptional experience at our pace. (As an older couple this was greatly appreciated.) He shared his vast knowledge of history and cultural significance as we trekked over and around the mountain, touring Bishan, and Hongcun. We concluded our trip by making fish lanterns. China Highlights has once again provided us with great memories. more
We suggest you arrive in Huangshan before lunch. Your private guide and driver will be ready and will ensure you have a comfortable and efficient transfer after your arrival.
You will continue to one of China's most beautiful ancient villages, Hongcun Village, where layer after layer of white walls and black tiles will impress you.
After that, you will be transferred to Tunxi Old Street (about 1 hour's drive). There, you can enjoy a leisurely walk among the unique buildings and look around to search for a bargain.
To ensure an easy pace, we suggest a late return after dinner.
Set out at about 7am, then start your hike to the Yellow Mountains without worrying about heavy luggage. The best way to appreciate the magnificent Yellow Mountains from a bird’s-eye view is to take a cable car ride (a round-trip cable car ride is included).
See the highlights, which are at the back of the Yellow Mountains. Go all the way up and gaze at the horizon over the sea of clouds in Beginning-to-Believe Peak (1,668 meters), then enjoy the famous natural wonder of Stone Monkey Watching the Sea on Lion Peak (1,690 meters). Continue hiking and look down at the Avatar-like rock peaks at West Sea Grand Canyon (the canyon usually closes in winter). Then take some great photos and take a cable car ride back down.
Two hours before your boarding time, sit back and relax as your private driver and guide take you to the airport. They will accompany you to the check-in area and say goodbye at the security gate.
