If you can be on Huangshan mountain in the right weather conditions you will come away like many an ancient Chinese poet and painter feeling you have seen one of China’s top sites. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Huangshan offers you the scenery seen in so many traditional Chinese paintings with the tops of peaks seemingly floating above cloud seas. Much of the mountain area is accessible thanks to up to 60,000 stone steps although some of the paths are not for those who have issues with heights! Huangshan is a great destination to add in to China tours.

HAND PICKED HUANGSHAN ACCOMMODATION
There really isn’t a huge amount of choice when you are staying up in the clouds on the mountain. It tends to be best to pick the hotel you stay at by its location on the mountain. The Behai Hotel is placed just a short distance from one of the best points to catch the sunrise and believe us when we say at 5 in the morning, the last thing you want to have to be doing is trekking miles to get to that point!
