Huangshan Spring Tour
Spring Yellow Mountains change their colour and appearance with the alternation of peaks.
The spring in Mt. Huangshan provides you a fresh and gay environment. Flowers blossom among steep cliffs and rocky crevices, of which the amazing colorful azalea is starring in gentle breeze. The singing birds haunt about the greenish pine branches occasionally with squirrels jumping across the path.
