In the evening we will board the overnight train to legendary Mt Huang (Yellow Mountain).

Days 5-6 : Stunning Mt Huang

Arrive at Mt Huang in the morning. Take a cable car to the summit to enjoy the spectacular views of the oddly shaped peaks, rock formations, thousand year old pine trees and mysterious ever-changing mist, all of which have inspired local artists for centuries. Stay for two nights here, one of which will be at the summit and the other in Tunxi, at the foot of the mountain.

Transfer to Huangshan Airport and fly to Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province. Continue by road to Zhangjiajie, inspiration for the scenery in the film Avatar.
