Travel content

Huang Shan: From ancient times Huang Shan has been considered the ultimate awesome mountain destination. Its jade mountains, ethereal mists, dizzying precipices and breathtaking panoramas continue to inspire lovers, scholars, poets and artists, and everyone else as well!

Huizhou Culture: Not far from Huang Shan are numerous intriguing villages which display the Huizhou culture, one of the three major cultures of China. Excellent examples of old Huizhou architecture include grand residences, archways and halls. In bygone days, rich merchants boasted of their wealth and distinction by building huge archways of local marble carved elaborately in typical Anhui styles. Their houses were built with very high walls and few or no windows in order to discourage thieves, but interior walls were richly covered with exquisite and delicate woodcarvings.

Huang Shan, Xidi and Hongcun villages, three of the places included in this tour, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Travel Itinerary

  • Day 1:
    Beijing / Shanghai - Tunxi Huang Shan City

    Flight from Beijing / Shanghai to Tunxi in the evening.

    Arrive in Tunxi (Huang Shan City) in agriculturally rich Anhui Province. There you will be met by your local guide and transferred to your hotel.

    Overnight in Tunxi

  • Day 2:
    Tunxi - Huang Shan Scenic Area (B, L)

    After breakfast at your hotel, you will start your tour of Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain).

    Go to Huang Shan Scenic Area by bus and take the Yungu cable-car up the mountain.

    Enjoy the Begin-to-Believe Peak, the spectacular views at Flower-scattering Valley, Lion Peak, Cloud-dispelling Pavilion, the West Sea (Beihai) Grand Canyon, and more. Begin-to-Believe Peak is very popular with its classic landscape of deep chasms and awesome ruggedness. You may notice the locks that loving couples have romantically fastened around the chain railings. After closing the locks together they throw the key off the peak as a token of their undying devotion.

    Overnight in a hotel on Huang Shan


  • Day 3:
    Huang Shan - Yixian - Tunxi (B, L)

    Watch the sunrise in the early morning and if the weather is fine you will see 'island' peaks jutting through a blanketing 'sea' of cloud. Afterwards go back down the mountain by the Yungu cable-car.

    Drive to Yixian County, which is praised as a veritable Garden of Eden, and visit the famous villages of Xidi, Hongcun, Lucun, Nanping and Guanlu. These villages preserve old Huizhou-style houses built in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, characterized by white-washed walls, gray-tiles, horse-head gables and beautiful carvings. Xidi and Hongcun are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

    The boat-shaped village Xidi is reputed to be "A Living Ancient Residential Museum in China". In the past, rich merchants living in Xidi used to build grand marble archways with elaborate relief carvings to symbolize their wealth and prestige.

    Hongcun is a unique buffalo-shaped village, one of the locations for the Oscar award-winning movie "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon". During the Ming dynasty a powerful retired government official decided to improve the 'fengshui' of the village by adding a lake and water channels that flow through nearly every household.

    Lucun Village has famous exquisite woodcarvings. Nanping is another famous movie-shooting site, where "Judou" was filmed. Guanlu has magical ancient dwellings inter-connecting with each other.

    Afterwards, back to Tunxi city center.

    Overnight in Tunxi

  • Day 4:
    Tunxi - Shexian - Tunxi - Beijing / Shanghai (B, L)

    Pay a visit to Shexian County, well-known for its long history and profound culture.

    There you will view the unique Tangyue archway, perhaps the largest one in China, the largest bonsai garden of the Huizhou School, Bao's Clan Garden and the mysterious village of the Eight Diagrams, Chengkan Village. After seeing all these, you will have a real feel for the ancient architectural styles of Huizhou Prefecture.

    Return by bus to Tunxi, where you visit the best-preserved commercial street, the Ancient Street of Tunxi, built in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Here you can still see the old bluestone paving and the distinctive Huizhou architecture with its fine woodcarvings on lattice windows and doors. This old trading area continues to sell traditional wares such as Chinese medicines, Shexian ink stones, special local tea and Huizhou ink sticks. The Hukaiwen Ink-stick Factory is also part of the tour.

    Departure from Tunxi for Beijing / Shanghai by plane in the evening.
