3 Days Yellow Mountain & Hongcun Village Tour

Day 1.  Arrive in Yellow Mountain
You will be transfered from the airport to your hotel. And the rest of the day is on your own. You can arrange some activities by yourself. Wish you a wonderful time!
Day 2.  Visit Huangshan Scenic area
You will tour Huangshan Scenic area by Yungu Cable Car to feel the distinct landscape. All the view will not live up to you. There are some tips for you: 1. Be kind to yourself - Travel light! Facilities are available to leave luggage at the bottom of the mountain, so if possible please take a small bag or backpack for your overnight stay on the mountain. If this is not possible and you need to take luggage to the top of the mountain, porters are available to carry your bags. 2. Clothing & Shoes - It is essential to take a jacket as it gets chilly and good walking shoes. Raincoats can be purchased and are a very wise investment for protection from the rain and wind. Don't use an umbrella as it can be dangerous. 3. Purchase some bottled water and snacks before you start to ascend the mountain. Supplies are available on the mountain but the prices increase with the altitude. 4. A cable car is available to make your trip to the top of the mountain easier but there are still lots of steep narrow stairs on the mountain if you plan to get the most out of you time. Please take care when climbing and trying to get the best photo opportunity.

Standing in the south of Anhui Province, renowned as "the loveliest mountain in China", Huangshan Scenic area covers a total area of about 1,200 square kilometers. It is reputed for its intoxicating scenery especially granite peaks piercing the clouds, strangely shaped rocks and gnarled trees, hot springs, waterfalls, wonderful outlooks and over 1500 plant species. There is a wonderful saying that " Huangshan Mountain's beauty is unparalleled on earth. Once you ascend the Huangshan Mountain Mountains, you will find other mountains nothing but mounds or hillocks." What a praise Huangshan Mountain has won! It is a mountain with the majesty of Mount Tai, the steepness of Mount Huashan, the smoke, the cloud of Mount Hengshan, the flying waterfalls of Lushan, the bizarre rock of Yandang, and the cool beauty of Emei rolled into one. The mountain has been entitled as the World Heritage. Huangshan Mountain's scenery is based on its peaks. Each peak exudes its own charm. Lotus Peak and Celestial Capital Peak stands the highest among others, presenting a special beauty. It is known for the odd, hardy and old pines which are all beautifully shaped by nature, some growing out of the rock cracks, some standing adhering to the cliff, some overhanging over the deep valley, and some capping the head of rock. Welcoming Guest Pine is the most famous one, like a hospitable host who flings his arms out to warmly welcome guests from home and abroad.

Day 3.  Depart Yellow Mountain
You will experience the life and the marvelous outlook in the ancient Hongcun Village. Then you shall be transfered to the airport from your hotel.

Hongcun is located in the southwestern foot of Mt. Huangshan, surrounded with green hills around and clear streams winding through. The village, covering an area of 30 hectares, receives a great fame for her water-supplying system. The bird view of the village's shape is like a resting water- buffalo. Hence people also call “buffalo-shaped Village”. The peaceful environment and beautiful surroundings shows visitors a piece of pleasurable and tranquil picture of a typical country life in South China. Due to the fabulous scenery, it served as the place where the famous Chinese film "Wo Hu Cang Long (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon)" shot, which was directed by Lee Ang. In the 73rd Academy Awards, the film has won Best Foreign Film, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, and Best Art/Set Direction. Apart from the scenery, you can also appreciate the splendid woodcarving on the beams and columns. It is a distinct ancient town for your traveling.
