Day 3  The Yellow Mountains Tour


Sunrise on the Yellow Mountains

Today you will spend a day and a night on the Yellow Mountains. It takes about one hour from central Huangshan City to reach the foot of the Yellow Mountains. Your appreciation of the graceful Yellow Mountains begins with the Yungu cable car (a round-trip cable car is included). Don’t miss the magnificent scenery along your 10-minute journey.

Your guide, who spends over 200 days on the mountains every year, will customize the route for you.

For an energetic hiker in good shape: Descend the cable car, walk for about 40 minutes to arrive at the hotel, and see Harp Pine, Beginning-to-Believe Peak and Black Tiger Pine along the way. After buffet lunch at the hotel, explore the West Sea Grand Canyon. The whole hiking trip lasts for over three hours, covering the 1st ring, 2nd ring, and bottom of the canyon. If time and strength permit, you can further explore the Flying-over Rock and watch the sunset at Bright Top. It takes about 40 minutes to get from Bright Top back to the hotel.

For beginners, children, and senior citizens: Get off the cable car, walk for about 30 minutes to the hotel, and see Black Tiger Pine and Dream Flower Pine on the way. After buffet lunch at the hotel, walk to West Sea Grand Canyon. You can decide how long you would like to walk for: reaching the 1st ring and returning takes about two hours; reaching the 2nd ring and returning takes about 2½ hours. Then enjoy the sunset at Cloud-dispelling Pavilion. It takes about 30 minutes to get back to the hotel.

Good to know:
Travel light! Please take a small bag or backpack for your overnight stay on the mountain. Your guide will assist you with storing your big suitcase in your hotel in Tunxi. You can collect it on your way back. You can also store the luggage at the foot of the mountain. The cost is about CNY20 (US$4) for each piece.

Short Cut. Trekking in the West Sea Grand Canyon can be a big challenge, especially to your knees. A monorail is available to help you save time and strength. It runs between the bottom of the Canyon and the main peak area, which is about 300 meters (0.2 miles) from the Baiyun/Tianhai Hotel. The cost is CNY80 (US$13) per person.

Accommodation
One night on the mountain: Beihai Hotel (superior class)/Xihai Hotel — South Wing/New Wing (deluxe class).

Your discovery of the Yellow Mountains will finish with the Yungu Cable Car journey. Then it is time to enjoy an authentic Hui style lunch in a local restaurant.

You will continue on to one of China’s most beautiful ancient villages — Hongcun Village, a charming ancient village with a history of over 800 years. The village will show you the original Hui style architecture (a type of traditional Chinese architecture).

After that you will be transferred to Tunxi Ancient Street (about one hour’s drive). There you can enjoy a leisurely walk among the ancient buildings and look around to search for a bargain.

Highlights

Anhui Architecture

hongcunHong Village's mirrored structures

This village is described as one of the Yellow Mountains must see areas. Partly for the preserved Ming and Qing architecture and the village layout that was recognized by UNESCO in the year 2000.

Ingenious use of elements of water, trees and gardens, and farmland produced a beautiful setting for the Wang Clan's daily life over many generations.

The village structures blend in with the natural setting that exhibit the wisdom of hundreds of years of village construction.

Many of the villagers diverted water via small canals into their court yards, turning their houses into garden settings.

Hongcun is an outstanding representative of Huizhou traditional local culture, building techniques and landscape design. It has historical, artistic, and scientific value.

Geomancy: The lay of the whole village was designed according to geomantic (feng shui) ideas. It looks like the shape of a cow to Chinese people. To prevent the spread of fires and to also water the plants, laborers built a water system according to the cow design in traditional geomancy. The village centers around "the heart of the cow", Moon Pond.

Chengzhi Hall

hongcun villageWood engraving of Chengzhi Hall

Residences and sights to be seen in a tour include Chengzhi Hall that is known for it's engraved art. It is covered with gold sheet and painted with colors.

Southern Lake Academy

This complex is on the north bank of Southern Lake. It was built in 1814 when six family schools that were there were combined and rebuilt. The academy covers an area of over 6,000 square meters. The buildings are grand and wide.

It is a good architectural representative of the family academies of Huizhou. One of the interesting social developments of the various Chinese clan villages during the late Qing Dynasty era and in the early 20th century was the construction and support of "family schools" to educate the children of the large family groups.

By visiting it, you can learn something about the social life of that time. You can also see the artists paint there.

History

Hongcun was founded about the year 1100. So it has a history of about 900 years. Hongcun was first called "Hongcun (弘村)." "Hong" here means great. In the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, its name was changed into a synonymous homonym "Hongcun (宏村)." The exact same sound written with a different character means great, grand, or magnificent.

Hongcun is a village of the ancient Wang clan. The ancestral home of the Wang clan is Jinling. In the Southern Song Dynasty, they moved to Huizhou.
