- The Yellow Mountain Scenic Area: Known as China’s loveliest mountain, the Yellow Mountain is spectacular throughout the year. There are many attractions for visitors to enjoy including waterfalls, outlooks, hot springs, interestingly shaped rocks, sea of clouds and impressive granite peaks. The 150 sq km scenic area can only be explored on foot or by cable car.

- Smart Tips:

  • As a Huangshan tour insider, we recommend a less-explored trail from Back Hill to Front Hill.
  • Get a light pack and leave your not-needed luggage to your private driver, which is a key to full enjoyment and exploration of Huangshan.
  • Go to bed early and sleep tight if you'd like to catch the sunrise in the morning.
  • Short cut: A monorail is available running between the main peak and the bottom of the West Sea Grand Canyon, stairs between which are very narrow and steep. It takes about only 5 minutes down to save you 1 hours and energy , and costs about US$13 (80 yuan).
