Back to the downtown in the afternoon. Overnight in the downtown. Since you'll have to carry everything yourself up Huangshan unless you hire a porter, it is advisable that you leave your big luggage in the hotel in downtown and bring only a small handbage or knapsack with you up mountain.

The breath-taking scenery of Huangshan has attracted numerous painters and artists across the country ever since the ancient time. It was listed as world natural and cultural heritage by UNESCO. We really can not find out the right words to describe the stunning beauty of this mountain. Photography is surely the best way to share with your family members or friends the marvelous views.

Taking in the sunrise in the morning. Visit the Purple Cloud Peak, Lion Peak and Beginning-to-believe Peak before taking the cable car down the mountain from the eastern steps.
