Huangshan Scenic Area is a granite massif consisting of 36 separate peaks, rising above 1,800 m.

Famous throughout Chinese artistic history, Huangshan represents the prototypical mountain in ancient Chinese paintings.

Jagged granite peaks clothed in uniquely shaped pine trees create a spectacular landscape.

Frequently shrouded in mist, the many peaks appear to float on clouds, and many have fanciful names — Lotus Flower Peak, Celestial Capital, Paint Brush, etc.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Lowland Mountains
The main thing to do in Huangshan is walk around and take photographs of the scenery which is spectacular, beautiful, different and varying in appearance with every change of weather. The same view looks quite different by day in fine weather or with cloud, early morning or late evening. Sunrise and sunset are renowned but, of course, dependent on the weather.

All of the scenic area is gorgeous but the following spots are highlights: Lotus Peak, Narrow Cliff, Fair-walking Bridge, Cloud-dispelling Pavillion, the rings/loops north of Xihai Grand Canyon, Refreshing Terrace, Beginning to Believe Peak and White Goose Ridge.
Hiking and Trekking
Many walk Huangshan in a single day. Typically visitors start early from Tangkou or Tunxi and take the shuttle bus to Yungu cable car, taking that to the top. From the top station walk counter-clockwise via Black Tiger Pine, Dawn Pavilion, Cloud-dispelling Pavilion, Flying-over Rock and Bright Top to Yuping (Jade Screen) cable car station and then take the cable car and shuttle bus back to Tangkou or Tunxi.

For those with a bit more time or who prefer a more relaxed journey, a multi-day itinerary is worthwhile. In addition to allowing sunset and sunrise views, it also allows relatively easy detours to Lotus Peak, Lion Peak, Beginning to Believe Peak and White Goose Ridge.

There is also the option of forgoing the initial cable cars in favor of hiking. From the Yuping Cable Car/Mercy Light Temple entrance, the "Western Steps" lead up for about 14km over spectacular terrain. Allow 6-7 hours for the ascent. From the Yungu Cable Car carpark the ascent by the "Eastern Steps" is easier, taking as little as 2-3 hours.
