The lion’s summit and the Monkey watching the Sea, indeed belong to the most famous attractions of the Huangshan Mountains. The region is particularly suitable for the legendary sunsets, but only with a clear view. They are best seen from the ‘pavilion for arranging the clouds’ and the ‘terrace of the refreshing coolness’.
For several days on the Huangshan, the Beihai Hotel can be used as the first overnight accommodation. After climbing the Eastern Steps and exploring the area around the Shixin Peak, you can enjoy the sunsets here in peace. The next day the hike continued, from the Beihai region through the Xihai region to the West Sea Gran Canyon.
