Day 4 Hangzhou to Huangshan

We will drive for about four hours to reach Huangshan by the newly completed Hangzhou-Huangshan Highway. It is safe to say that Mt. Huangshan is the most fantastic mountain in China, probably also in the world and its fabulous views are simply out of question. We'll sightsee the Beginning-to-believe Peak, Lion Peak and Refreshing Terrace after taking cable car up mountain from the eastern steps. Since you'll have to carry everything yourself up Huangshan unless you hire a porter, it is advisable that you leave your big luggage in the hotel in downtown Tunxi and bring only a small handbag or backpack with you up mountain.
