Meet your guide at your hotel in Huangshan city center and transfer to Mt. Huangshan, also called Yellow Mountain.
Once you arrive at Huangshan Mountain, you will take a shuttle bus to the Yungu Cable Car, which takes about 30 minutes.

You will have lunch at the top of the Yellow Mountain before visiting the Xihai Scenic Area. Then you will take the Yungu Cable Car down.
After that, you will drive for about 70 minutes to visit Hongcun Village, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its traditional Southern Anhui-style architecture.
