Day 3 Huangshan
The whole day visit on Mt. Huangshan (cable car up). (B+L)
Mt. Huangshan
In the morning, we will transfer you in a comfortable vehicle to the foot of the Huangshan Mountain, and then your guide will accompany you to take a cable car for around 10 minutes to the Yuping Building. On the cable car, you could look far down at the Tiandu Peak, look closely at the Lotus Peak as well as overlook the mountains and streams, which will bring you a fantastic and unforgettable experience.

After getting off the cable car, you will firstly enjoy the scenery of the 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 and intoxicating from here. The shaped rocks hanging on the steep cliffs together with the deep valleys create a charming natural painting. After that, proceed to the Peach Blossom Peak, where there are numerous peach trees. When the peach trees blossom in March and April every year, the peak will be an ocean of peach flowers, making it a wonderland under heaven. The next stop will be the Lion Peak, which is 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 getting the name of the 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.
