Great Heights and Soothing Springs
This mountain has inspired an infinite number of artistic masterpieces, and for good reason: Huangshan’s majestic slopes offer breathtaking views that place you right into the middle of a Chinese landscape painting. Although pricy by Chinese standards, a trip to the “Yellow Mountain” is well worth the money spent. A cable car ensures an easy ascent for smaller children, but hiking up the mountain is the experience of a lifetime. Hike-weary legs can be soothed in hot springs located part way up the mountain. During the summer months, the mountain is covered with flowers, but views from Huangshan’s peaks are stunning all year round. Decent hotels can be found at various points on the mountain, so families can pick whether they would rather sleep at great heights, closer to the ground, or somewhere in the middle!
