Huangshan Mountain – Mount Huang

China’s Yellow Mountains

Huangshan Mountain (not to be confused with Huashan Mountain) is a train ride from Shanghai, plus a bus ride to reach the scenic area. These gorgeous Yellow Mountains are part of the UNESCO World Heritage center property sites which are protected in China. Dramatic granite peaks fill the landscape and attract visitors from tourists to artists to poets and photographers.

Huangshan Mountain 4 Day Trip

Our Huangshan Mountain trip is currently set at four days, with two nights on top of the mountain. This allows time for those fond of hiking to explore the mountain, plenty of opportunities for photographers to take sunrise or sunset photos, and increases the chance for good weather.

Huangshan weather is known for rain — 200 days of the year, so be prepared for beautiful misty mountains embraced by clouds, but also a chance for a sunny blue sky.
