... was really good to get away from lots of people and enjoy the silence, having been in cities of millions for over a week it was great to be away from the crowds. We were also really lucky with the weather as it apparently rains 200 days of the year in Huangshan but we had blue skies and sunshine. This was also the first time I had been able to see the sky since I got to China as usually the smog blocked it out, this did catch me out so my neck got very ...
... work my way across the mountain to the west side and take the gondola down. I had thought the eastern part of the mountain was pretty but it was completely blown away by the west side. The scenery was indescribable. And the stairs cut into the rocks were often breathtaking. I took almost a whole memory card worth of photos (which in case you're wondering is approximately a ****-ton). I made it to the cable car with 2 minutes to spare before it closed for the night.

It is evident that both Japanese and Chinese families took incredible care in planning ...

Later in the day we ventured out again, this time walking down to the entry of The Xihau Grand Canyon - a 4km roundtrip. There were many pretty areas, but the fog hung around and the area’s full spectacle was unfortunately ...

The bed is very hard in the dorms. About 2 inches of padding. The hike to the Bright Summit in the morning takes about 45 minutes. From the eastern cable car (Cloud Valley) it is a 2 hour hike. Decent restaruant but again ve4ry expensive for china.
