Huangshan Mountains, also known Yellow mountains. A day to remember with the amazing views and thousands of stairs. Boondocking at Japanese sauna in the evening.

Going up to the mountains and spending whole day there

After a couple of hours of driving from the “To Journey” camping site, we arrived at Huangshan Mountains. Some difficulties to find parking space as the RV needs additional height. Finally found a place behind some buildings. Later on, discovered they have a large parking area at the entrance.

Huangshan Mountains

Purchased the tickets and bus fares. Easy done and took the bus to the mountains, about 15 minutes and we arrived at the cable cars. As usual plenty of stairs and maybe we covered 10% of the area. What can you say about the view it was purely magnificent.

Huangshan (Chinese: 黄山), literally meaning the Yellow Mountain(s), is a mountain range in southern Anhui Province in eastern China. It was originally called “Yishan”, and it was renamed because of a legend that Emperor Xuanyuan once made alchemy here. Vegetation on the range is thickest below 1,100 meters (3,600 ft), with trees growing up to the treeline at 1,800 meters (5,900 ft).

The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly-shaped granite peaks, Huangshan pine trees, hot springs, winter snow, and views of the clouds from above. Huangshan is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, as well as modern photography. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of China’s major tourist destinations.


Japanese sauna and relaxation nearby Huangshan City

After a long day in the mountains checked for nearby camping places. Seemed to be impossible and this time boon-docking was not a suitable option. Everybody was tired, in need of a good shower and dinner. Checked the GPS and found out in a nearby city there is a Japanese sauna. There are many of these in China and it is a good place for relaxing. Decided to park in their parking lot and checked in and this was the best decision made on this trip. Hot springs, sauna, massage chairs, movies, and kids played some video games. Dinner with some dishes and we were ready at midnight to crawl back to the RV.
