Mt. Huangshan
In the morning, you will journey to the foot of Huangshan Mountain and take a cable car to climb its front mountain. You could admire the magnificent scenery on the cable car. Upon arrival, you will firstly enjoy the scenery of Beginning-to-Believe Peak, renowned for the grotesque rocks and pines. As its name suggests, you will really begin to believe that the scenery of the mountain is captivating. The shaped rocks hanging on the steep cliffs and the deep valleys create a charming natural painting. After that, proceed to the Peach Blossom Peak, where boasts numerous peach trees. When the peach trees blossom every March or April, the peak will be an ocean of peach flowers, making it a wonderland under heaven. Your next stop is the Lion Peak, situated to the west of the Beginning-to-Believe Peak. The rock at the peak is exposed like a powerful lion crouching on the mountain, hence the name. Then, you will continue the trip to the Flying Stone. It is actually a 39-feet-high, 8-meter-long, and about 360-ton piece of rock balanced on a tiny flat ledge. The space between the two large pieces of rock is very small and the erecting rock is just like flying over from the heaven, hence its name Flying Stone. It is a typical Huangshan Mountain's incomparable natural beauty.

The last site you will explore today is the Bright Summit, one of the highest peaks of the mountain. Standing on it, you could appreciate the wonderful scenery of the East Sea Scenic Area, the mountain peaks in West Sea Scenic Area and the surrounding peculiar rocks. Tonight, you will stay over at the best hotel on the mountain.
