We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Then change for the local green bus and continue to drive for about 15 minutes along the zigzag mountain road before you get to the bus station at Yungu.

Taking a 5-minute walk from bus station to Yungu Telpher Station (云谷索道). Actually there are two cable stations in Yungu. We take the new telpher station. The 10-minite ride takes you to the White Goose Telpher Station(白鹅岭索道) on the top of White Goose Ridge of Huangshan Mountain.

Taking a 0.8km pleasant walk from White Goose Telpher Station (白鹅岭索道) to Stalagmite Peak(石笋矼) We got off the cable car at White Goose Telpher Station and walk along the White Goose Ridge towards Stalagmite Peak, the first peak on your Huangshan Trip. From the cable car station to the Stalagmite Peak is 0.8 km. It is a pleasant walk teemed with amazing views of pine trees, colourful leaves and various peaks with comfortable temperature under azure sky.

Stalagmite Peak(石笋矼)

Taking a 0.2km walk from Stalagmite Peak (石笋矼)to Beginning-to-Believe-Peak(始信峰) This 20-minute walk is a little difficult than that of from the White Goose Telpher Station to Stalagmite Peak. The mountain road is a bit steep. On the way, you can still enjoy the different views of pine trees and unknown peaks.


Taking a 1km walk from Beginning-to-Believe Peak(始信峰)to A Flower Blooming on Brush Tip(妙笔生花) After enjoying the fantastic view of Beginning-to-Believe Peak, you walk 1 km towards to another famous attraction – A Flower on the Tip of a Brush Pen. This 1km walk is also quite interesting. Especially you could see some unique pine trees. One of the pine trees is called “Umbrella Pine” named by Secretary of United Nations – Mr.Kofi Anna and his wife Nane Anna when they paid a visit to Huangshan on May 20-21,2006.

Around 5:30am, after simple washing and putting on the winter jacket available in your room, hurry down and hike about 500 meters up to Dawn Pavilion(曙光亭)by using flashlights, the best point to view the dawn and twilight in Huangshan. If you are lucky, you will catch the first sun light, but the sunrise is blocked the Beginning-to-believe Peak. Maybe that's why it is called "Dawn Pavilion" instead of "Sunrise Pavilion".

Dawn Pavilion(曙光亭)

After breakfast and check out around 8:30am and begin 2-hour sightseeing at Dawn Pavilion(曙光亭), Refreshing Terrace (清凉台)and Stone Monkey Gazing over the Sea of Clouds(猴子观海).

0.05km Walk from our Beihai Hotel to Dawn Pavilion (曙光亭).
The Down Pavilion is your first sight in the morning. The steps leading to the pavilion is a little steep, but it isn't hard to climb up if you keep your slow pace. As the name implies, the Dawn Peak is one of teh best place to see the first light of the sun in Huangshan Mountain. The peak is 1625 in altitude. From this peak, you can also see and admire the granite forest peaks in Huangshan Mountain.

Huangshan, only 11kms away from Yixian town. It is a unique, buffalo-shaped ancient village. The locals liken Leigang Hill as the "head", two huge trees on the hill as the "horns", the residences in the village as the "body" a winding stream as the "intestines", a crescent pond as the "stomach" and the four bridges as the "four feet". Because of this extraordinary vernacular dwellings of the village, Hongcun Village was added to the list of the World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in late 2000.
