Huang Shan (West Sea Great Canyon) | Hongcun village
Day 1 Huangshan airport/train station pickup
Tunxi Old Street (Túnxī Lǎojiē, 屯溪老街) (about 2 hours)
Located in Túnxī (屯溪), the central district of Huangshan City, Tunxi Old Street is a stone pedestrian street lined with old shops and restaurants in restored buildings, some originally dating back to the Song Dynasty, done in the traditional style of the region's Huizhou culture.
Stay overnight at the downtown hotel you've arranged in Huangshan city. (Accommodation fee is not included in the price.).
Day 2 Huangshan city-Huang Shan (includes lunch)
Huang shan (Yellow Mountain, Huáng Shān, 黄山) (about 5 hours)
The craggy rock faces, hanging mists and clustered pines of Huang Shan create a lovely and distinctly Chinese landscape, one instantly recognizable from countless images on silk, paper and porcelain. The mountain range, consisting of some 70 peaks over 1,000 m (3,300 ft), spills across the southern province of Anhui in an exquisite jumble of scenic highlights—twisted lone pines clinging to stony spires, seas of clouds filling rugged valleys, and crystalline mountain spring-fed pools.
Climb up the mountain by Yungu cable car.
Take a visit to the West Sea Grand Canyon (Xīhǎi Dàxiágǔ, 西海大峡谷) via the newly launched Xihai cable car (additional fee applies), a relatively new scenic area opened in 2000 that has been dubbed "Heaven on Earth" and "A Fantasy World" for its unique and beautiful scenery. Some argue that West Sea Grand Canyon is the most impressive section of Huangshan, fully embodying the mysterious and intriguing aesthetic that has made the area such a famous destination.
Stay overnight at the hotel you've arranged on Huang Shan.
Day 3 Huang Shan-Hongcun-Huangshan departure (includes lunch)
Early in the morning, enjoy a breath-taking sunrise over Huang Shan.
After that, go back to hotel and enjoy breakfast (not included in price).
Descend the mountain by Yungu cable car, and then drive about 1 hour to Hongcun.
Hongcun village (Hóng Cūn, 宏村) (about 2 hours)
A charming traditional Huizhou village, Hongcun is best known as the film site of the Oscar-winning film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. You'll be able to bike around the village with your guide and also visit a local family where you'll have the chance to gain a better understanding of the life and traditions of the local people.
