Hiking in this 5 days tour is a bit challenging, and you should be physically prepared. There is a lot of up and down hiking on the Yellow Mountain and some of the steps are very hard.

After breakfast, drive to Yixian County by your private coach, which is praised as another "Garden of Eden" on Earth.

It will take you about three hours for the whole hiking. The Xidi-Hongcun Ancient Pathway in Yixian County is a national trail for mountaineering and fitness, being one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Huizhou. When you step on this simple and quiet rural road, you will pass through the green jungle and the flowing canals, breathing natural fresh air, listening to the birds and plunging yourself into the embrace of the beautiful nature here. You will have a panoramic view of the beautiful landscapes along this ancient trail surrounded by the mountains and rivers. In the afternoon visit Hongcun Village (a world cultural heritage site, the unique buffalo-shaped village, one of the shooting locations for the Oskar-awarded movie "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon").

Bus from Huangshan city to the park
My train from Xi'an will arrive in Huangshan station at 7pm. Is there still bus available to the park at that time, or should I stay in the city for one night? Thanks

The park? You mean Yellow Mountain or other places? If you mean Yellow Mountain, there is no bus available at that time so you need to stay overnight in the city.
