Xihai Great Canyon, Huangshan

Categories: Canyons, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Descend to the bottom of the ravine at Xihai Great Canyon. The scenic area offers a circular sightseeing route where you can encounter many distinctively shaped rocks, such as "Lady Playing Piano," "Upside-down Boot," and "Dog Watching Sky." The area covers 25 sq km (9.6 sq mi), and though the whole route is better suited to more physically fit visitors, anyone can visit some parts of the canyon. A sightseeing cable car goes from the top to the bottom of the ravine, making several stops along the way to allow guests to enjoy the scenery.

  • Mt Huangshan is known to be very touristy. On the main routes are never alone and under Chinese tour groups it can be ever loud. Who however makes the great Canyon will be soon or at least almost alone on beautifully landscaped trails. Tour groups come here here. Levels no end with a spectacular view! We were on April 1 here. A piece of the Canyon was unfortunately closed (from the bridge of the Fairywalking downwards) which has meant that we had to back up from the bridge. We have included the cable car down in the middle of the Canyon and the other side (direction Xihai hotel) Rauf migrated. Most visitors hike down and take the cable car to the top. Learning: not only on the Web also questions whether all avenues are open look.

  • If you see should look just like sulfuric acid in place. Hear without opening in the winter from April to open areas should note that when planning your teleportation. Monorail to move but when the cable car ride that feeling than that.
