Today we drive to Anhui ’s crown jewels, the incomparable Huang Mountains . The cable car ride to the summit reveals the staggering beauty of granite precipices emerging from fog banks. We walk twenty minutes to the Beihai Hotel and check into our rooms. The Huang Mountains are one of the world’s most stunning visual experiences; which explains its listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its sister park relationship with Yosemite National Park in California . Rising thousands of feet, numerous peaks balance granite escarpments in air and are crowned by solitary pines half-hidden in mists. Easily accessible, a cable car lifts travelers to the summit where accommodations are located. A short walk from the hotel allows views of stunning scenery in every direction. Although the highest peak only measures 6,200ft above sea level, the 70 sheer rock cliffs are spectacular to view. Almost everyone experiences the blissful feeling of departing mankind and entering paradise. Once at the summit, we can understand why Chinese landscape painters had no need to exaggerate to create their wondrous effects; they merely convey the actuality of Huang granite peaks! During our time at the summit, choose between short strolls on nearby paths or longer hikes along the summit ridge. This is precious time for individual exploration and family outings.
