Huangshan International Youth Hostel is located at the central area of Huangshan City. It is only 200 meters away from the railway station and long distance bus interchange, while only 6 kms from the airport.
The Huangshan area includes two famous world heritage sights - Mount Huangshan and Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui, Xidi and Hongcun.
Mount Huangshan known as 'the loveliest mountain of China', was acclaimed through art and literature during a good part of Chinese history. Today it holds the same fascination for visitors, poets, painters and photographers who come on pilgrimage to the site, which is renowned for its magnificent scenery made up of many granite peaks and rocks emerging out of a sea of clouds.
The two traditional villages of Xidi and Hongcun preserve to a remarkable extent the appearance of non-urban settlements of a type that largely disappeared or was transformed during the last century. Their street plan, their architecture and decoration, and the integration of houses with comprehensive water systems are unique to the area.
Even the local cuisine of Huangshan is among the 8 most famous cuisines according to Chinese food culture.
