Located in the southeastern corner of Anhui Province, near the province’s borders with Jiangxi and Zhejiang provinces, Huangshan City is named after its natural landmark- Yellow Mountain. The city stands in the shadow of the mountain, both literally and figuratively: it is the mountain that made the city what it is. Listed as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, Yellow Mountain is famous for its natural beauty. But the city is more than just a mountain.
Experiences not to be missed in Huangshan:
Climb up to the top of Yellow Mountain and admire its wacky-shaped pine trees, glorious sunrise and sunset, and beautiful sea of clouds;
Soak in hot springs at the foot of the mountain and wash hiking fatigue away;
Walk around nearby ancient villages like Hongcun, Xidi and Chengkan;
Taste authentic Anhui Cuisine and buy local green tea home.
