D2YELLOW MOUNTAIN

Today, you will spend the day exploring the Yellow Mountains.

 

The Yellow Mountains – in Chinese Huang (yellow) shan (mountain) – got their name in 747 AD in recognition of the legendary Huang Di who was known for making immortality pills here. It is said that you will not want to visit any of other of the four mountains ranges after seeing Huangshan. This old Chinese saying gives you a sense of Huangshan’s beauty and uniqueness. Together with other famous sights and landmarks, the Yellow mountains have become one of the great symbols of China.

Drive from your hotel to the Yellow Mountain by private transfer. Take the Yungu cable car up the mountain. Walk along the mountain tops and see the unique rock formations including the stone monkey gazing at the sea of clouds. Take the Yungu cable car back down in the afternoon and transfer back to your hotel for some free time at your leisure.
