Details

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-Huangshan city (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.

Lunch on top of the mountain

Enjoy stunning views from several viewpoints including Shixin Peak (Shǐxìn Fēng, 始信峰), Lion Peak (Shīzǐ Fēng, 狮子峰) and A Monkey Gaping at the sea (Hóuzī Guān Hǎi, 猴子观海).

Descend the mountain by Yungu cable car, and then head back to your hotel.

Stay overnight at the downtown hotel you've arranged in Huangshan city.

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.
