Route: Greeting Guest Pine - Bright Summit - West Sea Grand Canyon
Length: about 10km/7 hrs

Today after breakfast, our guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel, then drive about 80 kilometers (1.5 hours) to the foot of Mount Huangshan (Yellow Mountain), the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and one of the most beautiful mountains in China. Your memorable Huangshan hiking starts! 

To save more time and energy to explore the highlighting mountain top area, you will directly transfer by park bus from the mountain foot to Mercy Light Pavilion to take a cableway to upper Jade Screen Scenic Area (Yuping Scenic Area), also known as the Front Mountain. After a few minutes’ ascending walking from the upper cableway station, you will reach the symbol of Mount Huangshan - Greeting Guests Pine. From the Greeting Pine, the uprising stone steps take you to a fork where you have to decide to hike two hours to the highest peak on the Mount Huang - Lotus Peak(1864m) or not. Walk down the One Hundred Cloud Ladder from the fork to a lower valley, then climb the steeping path of One-Line-Sky to get to Turtle Fish Peak. From the peak, an even path leads you to the middle way of today – Baiyun Hotel. After a short rest, keep on hiking about 500 meters to the Bright Summit, the second highest peak on the mountain. Walk around for sightseeing from the centrical location, then you have to walk about one and a half hour from the Bright Summit to the Dispelling Cloud Pavilion which is the entrance for the dreamland – West Sea Grand Canyon. The famous Flying-over Rock is a MUST-SEE along the road.

Generally speaking, it takes about 3 hours for energetic hiker to hike from the Dispelling Cloud Pavilion, via 1st Ring and 2nd Ring to the bottom and return to the starting point. For beginners, children, and senior travelers, you can decide the hiking length on your own according to your physical condition, usually 2 hours for the 1st Ring and 2.5hrs for the 2nd Ring. In the bottom of the canyon, there is also a monorail cable trains for those who don’t want to return by walking to transfer back to the peak area. 

(Please Note: from December to the middle March of next year, the Lotus Peak and West Sea Grand Canyon are usually closed for the heavy snow. Please feel free to contact us to adjust your itinerary)
