If you climb one mountain in China, let it be Huangshan ! With its 72 peaks, it is considered one of the most unique and beautiful mountain ranges in the world and it is the only mountain listed in China's Top Ten Scenic Spots. Then you will visit the well-preserved ancient villages and architecture near the mountains located in the south of Anhui province. the houses and water system were used as part of the scene in the film "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
 
Highlights

Four features of Huangshan Scenery: Sea of clouds, strangely shaped rocks, unusual pine trees, and bubbling hot springs.

Best time to visit

Spring and Autumn. The off peak season is only between Dec.1 to February. One of the most popular destination in China, it also sees frequent governmental and corporate conferences and seminars being held there, making Yellow Mountain an relatively expensive place to visit. Food and hotel price on the summit is triple the usual price. Book your hotel early enough.

What to see

Yellow Mountain
Huangshan, known as 'the loveliest mountain of China', was acclaimed through art and literature during a good part of Chinese history (e.g. the Shanshui 'mountain and water' style of the mid-16th century). Today it holds the same fascination for visitors, poets, painters and photographers who come on pilgrimage to the site, which is renowned for its magnificent scenery made up of many granite peaks and rocks emerging out of a sea of clouds.

Yellow Mountains are very foggy sometimes because of the rain and clouds, so you are not guaranteed seeing beautiful scenes any dates you get on the top of the mountain,  even though you spend two nights on the summit just expecting that.

Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui near Mount Huangshan are preserved to a remarkable extent the appearance of non-urban settlements of a type that largely disappeared or was transformed during the last century. Their street plan, their architecture and decoration, and the integration of houses with comprehensive water systems are unique surviving examples.
