Top Natural Scenes

The country is vast stretching thousands of miles from the deserts in the west to the ocean in the east. The following scenic wonders are the must-sees.


The charming lakes look like crystal sapphires embedded on the earth. Most of popular Chinese lakes assemble on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The beautiful mythical tales of lakes make them more attractive.


There are many famous and pretty mountains. The beauty of Mt. Huangshan lies in its pines with infinite variety of forms, strange rocks, the sea of clouds and hot springs, however, for some mountains, they get their reputation by their cultural heritage and charming scenery, such as Mt. Taishan, Mt. Emei, Lu Mountain and Wudang Mountains.

Grasslands and Prairies

The grasslands in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang and Gansu are the wonderful places to relax yourselves. The broad prairies stretch on all sides as far as the eye can see. The continuous hills and green meadows form a peaceful view. Horses gallop on the prairie, sheep graze in the pastures and songs are heard clear over the grasslands.


It is a rolling country in the south of the Yangtze River. In order to greatly utilize the hilly land for farming, the farmers level the hillsides or sloping lawns into terraces. Terraced fields can be seen everywhere in the south of China. The most famous terraces are Longji Terraces in Guangxi Province and Hani Terraces in Yunnan Province.

From Hangzhou, you could take a bus to get to Mt. Huangshan directly. After visiting the mountain, you could take a bus to Shanghai directly. Actually, you could arrange the order freely since the transportation is between any two of them.

April is a comfortable time to come here. Enjoy the trip!
