Top 9 Things to Do in Huangshan
The name of Huangshan City derives from the famous Yellow Mountain, No. 1 of its must-see places. Besides such natural wonders, a history of more than 2,200 years has left the city with a large number of cultural heritages. Known as Huizhou in ancient time, Huangshan is the birthplace of Hui culture as well as the hometown of Huizhou merchants who ever ruled China’s commerce for over 300 years. Visiting the Huizhou style ancient villages and learning the local carving and painting art are among the top things to do in Huangshan. Let’s see the list below to know the best places to visit.
Three travel routes are provided for tourists: Front Mountain, Back Mountain and West Sea Valley. Along the way, you will see amazing Lotus Peak, Heavenly Capital Peak, Jade Screen Pavilion, Guest-Greeting Pine, Thread of the Sky, Lion Peak and Flying Stone. One or two days are recommended and the trip requires enough physical strength. Cable cars are the best choice if you are too tired to walk. The weather is changeable, with more rains; the temperature on the mountain is quite different from that at the foot. Remember to tale the raincoats and warm clothes with you.
