Mt. Huangshan (Yellow Mountain) is the name of the 72 peaks mountain range lying in the south of Anhui province. It is famous for its spectacular rocky peaks, oddly shaped pines, crystal-clear mountain springs and the sea of clouds.
Hongcun, an ancient village not far from Yellow Mountain, preserves many old style folk residences with white walls and grey tiles. The Moon Pond inside the village with the clear reflections of the residences are very worth visiting.
Xidi Ancient Village, 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of the famous Yellow Mountain, is famous for the traditional folk residences of Ming (1368 - 1644) and Qing (1644 - 1911) style, and reputed as “A Living Ancient Residential Museum”.
