One Day Huangshan Private Village and Culture Experience Tour

Huangshan is the important birthplace of Hui culture. This tour will take you to appreciate beautiful Hui-style buildings and try rubbing at Tangmo Ancient Village, learn bamboo weaving from experienced locals at Lingshan Village, experience the process of producing ink stick at a time-honored factory, and wander around Tunxi Ancient Street imagining what it looks like back to ancient times.

Your guide and driver will pick you up at about 8:00 am from your Huangshan downtown hotel and drive about 40 minutes to 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.

Tangmocun Village

Tanganyuan Garden definitely cannot be missed in Tangmo Village. The garden was said to be built by a rich businessman for his mother who wanted to visit the famous West Lake in Hangzhou but was restrained by her physical conditions. Her son spent lots of money building the garden by imitating the West Lake. There’s a 400-year-old camphor tree which was once in a Chinese movie Marriage of the Fairy Princess. Couples usually make wishes under the tree and tie red ribbons with each other’s name on the tree. The garden also is a good place to appreciate calligraphic inscriptions of famous Chinese calligraphers from Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. Afterwards, you will learn Rubbing Art from a teacher and try to make a piece by yourself to feel the charm of calligraphy culture.

Rubbing Art

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. Just immerse yourself in the pastoral scenery. 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 with bamboo. Marvel at their excellent skills and learn Bamboo Waving from the local expert farmer.

Bamboo Waving

After saying goodbye to the villages, we will go back to Huangshan downtown to have a lunch. 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. You will visit the factory and learn the manufacture process of ink. Today’s last stop is Tunxi Ancient Street, 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).

At the end of the whole day of fun, your guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel.
