Day 2 Arrive at Huangshan

After breakfast at your hotel, you will drive along Huangshan Expressway to Huangshan Scenic Area, about 1.5-hour's drive, 80km north from your hotel in Tunxi. Get off the expressway from the exit No. 299 at Tangkou Township.
Tips: We recommend letting your tour guide arrange storage of your not-needed luggage, and preparing a light pack for exploring the mountains.
Then change for the local green bus and continue to drive for about 15 minutes along the zigzag mountain road before you get to the bus station at Yungu. Take a 5-minute walk from bus station to Yungu Telpher Station. The 10-minite ride takes you to the White Goose Telpher Station on the top of White Goose Ridge of Huangshan Mountain.

We got off the cable car at White Goose Telpher Station and walk along the White Goose Ridge towards Stalagmite Peak, the first peak on your Huangshan Trip. From the cable car station to the Stalagmite Peak is 0.8 km. It is a pleasant walk teemed with amazing views of pine trees, colorful leaves and various peaks with comfortable temperature under azure sky.

Taking a 0.2km walk from Stalagmite Peak to Beginning-to-Believe-Peak(This 20-minute walk is a little difficult than that of from the White Goose Telpher Station to Stalagmite Peak). The mountain road is a bit steep. On the way, you can still enjoy the different views of pine trees and unknown peaks.

After enjoying the fantastic view of Beginning-to-Believe Peak, you walk 1 km towards to another famous attraction – A Flower on the Tip of a Brush Pen. This 1km walk is also quite interesting. Especially you could see some unique pine trees. One of the pine trees is called “Umbrella Pine” named by Secretary of United Nations – Mr. Kofi Anna and his wife Nane Anna when they paid a visit to Huangshan on May 20-21, 2006.

Check in your hotel and take a lunch. At about 3:00pm, start your afternoon sightseeing at Grand Canyon of West Sea. The cable car in West Sea has just opened to public since July 9, 2013. You will take the cable car to explore the most mysterious part of Huangshan.

Return to your hotel around 6:30pm. After dinner, free for rest of the day. Go to bed early preparing for next morning's the first Light of the Morning (Dawn) if fine weather (don't forget to check the sunrise time from the hotel front desk - usually around 6:00am).
Tips: The meals on mountain top is about $17~$25. You may pay cash to our guide if request.

Meals: Breakfast
Day 3 Huangshan to Shanghai by flight in the evening

 Sunrise on the Yellow Mountains: If weather permit, you will need to be an early bird if the weather is nice and you plan to see the sunrise over the Yellow Mountains. You can find the sunrise times on the Yellow Mountains here, but your guide will tell you when and where, and offer local insider tips.
After you enjoy the sunrise, you will go back to the hotel and have your breakfast. Then you will walk to a cable car station and go downhill.
It takes about 1 hour to drive from the Yellow Mountains to Hongcun Village.
Hongcun Village: In the afternoon, you will discover this ancient village with over 900 years of history. This elegant village is renowned for its peaceful rural scenery, well-kept ancient buildings: unique Anhui-style dwellings, and profound culture. The mountains, the rivers, and the ancient dwellings, make highly picturesque landscapes. You might come across some art students and artists, who are there to capture its beauty on paper.
Tunxi Ancient Street: After that you will be transferred to Tunxi Ancient Street (about a one-hour drive), which is regarded as a living Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival' (a famous Chinese painting). This is the most popular street to locals, featured of Hui culture.
