  2. AM: After breakfast, your guide will meet you at your hotel and show you around Tangmo Ancient Village. The village could be dated back to the Tang Dynasty, and its name means “model village of the Tang Dynasty” (Tang refers to the Tang Dynasty, and mo means model in Chinese). Because the village is barely touched by tourist groups, you can have an enjoyable time exploring the village. You will learn Rubbing Art from a teacher and try to make a piece by yourself to feel the charm of calligraphy culture. Then we will move on to Lingshan Village. Surrounded by endless bamboo forest, the village seems far away from the bustling world, and the people here live a simple life. Walking along the Water Street, you will see old residential houses, stones bridges and even villagers washing their clothes in the river. Lingshan people make full use of abundant bamboo resources. They can make basket, hat, dustpan, and other things through Bamboo Waving. Marvel at their excellent skills and learn to make things by using bamboo.

    Noon: Lunch at local restaurant.

    PM: After a lunch, we will say goodbye to the villages and drive to Huangshan Mountain. Upon arrival, we will take a shuttle bus first and then take a cable car up the mountain. Your guide will lead you to see the beautiful scenery at Beginning-to-believe PeakBrush Pen Peak and enjoy sunset at Cloud-dispelling Pavilion. Along the way you will see many uniquely shaped pine trees growing out of the steep cliffs as if someone trimmed them. There will be many staircases that go up and down, but all the tiredness of climbing will be gone when you are rewarded with the breathtaking scenery. Please do not watch your camera or phone while walking.

    Tonight we will stay at a hotel on the mountain so as to catch sunrise next day.

  3. AM: Today you will get up in the early morning to witness the incredible sunrise. When the mountain is still sleeping under starry sky, we will leave the hotel to occupy a vantage point and quietly wait for the thrilling moment. With the passage of time, the color of sky will change slowly. The sun finally show its head and the peaks are bathed in dazzling gold. After you enjoy the sunrise, we will go back to hotel and have breakfast. Then move on to explore Bright Summit, the second highest peak of the mountain, and continue to Flying-over Rock. Next we will hop on cable car and descend the mountain to go back to Huangshan downtown.

    Noon: Lunch at local restaurant.

    PM: Visit Tunxi Ancient Street and Hu Kaiwen Ink-stick Factory. Tunxi Ancient Street is China’s most well-preserved ancient street combining architectural style of the Southern Song Dynasty, Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty. Just stroll on the street leisurely and appreciate the Hui-style buildings. You can optionally try some local snacks such as sesame seed cake (Shao Bing) and hair bean curd (Mao Dou Fu). Then we will visit Hu Kaiwen Ink-stick Factory which was founded by Hu Kaiwen in 1765 during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty to see how the ink stick is made. Ink stick is one of the four treasures of Chinese study (writing brush, ink stick, ink slab and paper), and the best ink stick in China comes from Anhui Province, the home of Huangshan Mountain. At the end of the tour, your guide and driver will take you to downtown hotel.
