Climbing the Great Wall is a life-long dream for most travelers. Today, your dream will come true as we take you in the morning to visit this magnificent human achievement. The Great Wall stretches for tens of thousands of miles from east to west. We'll visit the most famous section at Badaling. Then a  jade factory is scheduled. 

Normally, the restaurants near tourist spots are only for tourists and have low quality food and poor service. This is why we do not arrange lunch for you today. We recommend you have a big breakfast at the hotel and have some fast food for lunch by yourself. Our guide will show you some restaurants. 

Continue your sightseeing at the Sacred Way. On the way back we'll finish the day with a visit to the Bird's Nest stadium, a main venue of the 2008 Olympic Games. We will stop there briefly so you can take pictures.

Huangshan is definitely a must-visit place if you are a nature lover. Today you will be driven for around one hour so you can enjoy the beauty of the area around Huangshan Mountain. Then you will ascend the mountain by cable car and the stunning sceneries along the way will never let you down. Mt. Huangshan offers delightful views in all four seasons. On reaching the end of the ride, you will walk to enjoy the view of some famous spots, including the Beginning-to-Believe Peak, the Peach Blossom Valley, the Lion Peak, the Flying-over Rock and the Bright Summit. The foot path is quite slippery on rainy days, so please make sure you wear a pair of sturdy shoes. With a height of 1,860 meters, the Bright Summit is the second highest peak of the mountain. It is so named because the land here is flat and wide with good sunlight. The views from the peaks of the top are amazing beyond expression and will leave you with an everlasting memory. You will lodge at the 4-star Beihai Hotel on the mountain this evening. Try to get a good sleep in preparation for further exploration tomorrow.

Day 10 Departure from Huangshan

Tunxi Old Street
After breakfast at the hotel, you will visit the Cloud-Dispelling Pavilion and Xihai Grand Canyon. Walking northward for one kilometer from the Flying-Over Rock, you will reach the Cloud-Dispelling Pavilion, which is the best spot to get a fine view of the spectacular scenery. Then our guide will take you to admire Xihai Grand Canyon. 

Lunch will be served later and after that you will descend the mountain by cable car. Our guide will transfer you back to Huangshan city. Visit the Tunxi Old Street. With a history of hundreds of years, it is the best preserved commercial street lined with architectures in Huizhou style. You may spend the remaining time of the day wandering the street for shopping or photography. Dinner is on your own arrangement. Finally our guide and driver will see you off at the airport or the railway station according to your flight or train schedule.

Since there are no many flights connecting Huangshan with other cities, for your onward journey we have following suggestions. First, you can go back from Huangshan to Shanghai by either flight or an overnight soft sleeper train; second, you can fly from Huangshan to Guangzhou directly and then travel from Guangzhou to Hong Kong by a high speed train; third, if you book a round trip international flight, you can also fly back to Beijing from Huangshan. Usually most flights departing from Huangshan are late in the afternoon or in the evening, so you have enough time today. We hope these are helpful to you and our professional travel consultants are glad to assist you in making the best plan at any time.
