China is one of the biggest countries in the world, having a variety of attractions and number of places to visit. Yellow Mountains or Chinese Huangshan is one of those most popular and ideal destinations for tourists. Huangshan is in the province of Anhui in China and it is renamed after the legendary ruler of Chinese people HUANG DI. The real charm of visiting the Yellow Mountains is in the season of winter when people are trudging in heavy snow and enjoying the frosty temperatures.

The Yellow Mountains were listed as World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the late 20th century. It is popular because these mountains resemble a beautiful fairy tale having its peak covered with hard and white ice, beautiful rocks, hot springs and fascinating clouds.

We have planned to spend two days at this beautiful place. We will stay in the hotel, located at the top of the mountains so that we can enjoy the sense of serenity and closeness to nature. The top view from the hotel will also make it easy to take photographs of the whole beautiful landscape. We will definitely enjoy different reflections of mountains, at different times of the day.

After having a memorable time at the Yellow Mountains, we will move towards our second destination, which is the province of Hunan. The Hunan is located in the south-central part of China and is known in the world for its natural beauty. One of the famous films 'Avatar' was also shot there. In Hunan, you can see dizzying valleys and astonishing flying rocks. We will also visit the Zhangjiaje i.e., the glass bridge, which is one of the most popular places located in the National Forest Park of China. This place allows you to take crazy pictures to add to your travel diaries. We will also visit the Golden Whip Stream known as 'the most beautiful valley' in the world as well as 'the most poetic stream'.

We have also planned to visit the ancient Chinese Villages so that we can see the ancient charm of China and will also capture photos of local residents in their respective national dresses.

We will also need to have some physical training. For this, we will have to face a large number of descents and ascents along a number of stone steps for several kilometers. However, at the end of the day, these heavy footsteps will result in so many beautiful memories to recall in future.
