What to see
Huangshan, known as 'the loveliest mountain of China', was acclaimed through art and literature during a good part of Chinese history (e.g. the Shanshui 'mountain and water' style of the mid-16th century). Today it holds the same fascination for visitors, poets, painters and photographers who come on pilgrimage to the site, which is renowned for its magnificent scenery made up of many granite peaks and rocks emerging out of a sea of clouds.
Yellow Mountains are very foggy sometimes because of the rain and clouds, so you are not guaranteed seeing beautiful scenes any dates you get on the top of the mountain, even though you spend two nights on the summit just expecting that.
Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui near Mount Huangshan are preserved to a remarkable extent the appearance of non-urban settlements of a type that largely disappeared or was transformed during the last century. Their street plan, their architecture and decoration, and the integration of houses with comprehensive water systems are unique surviving examples.
