China's Beautiful Yellow Mountain (It's not yellow at all) Anhui Province: Huang Shan

"Of all the notable mountains in China, Mount Huangshan, to be found in the south of Anhui province, is probably the most famous. Originally known as Mt. Yishan it was renamed Mt. Huangshan in 747 AD in recognition of the legendary Huang Di, who was the reputed ancestor of the Chinese people and who made magic pills for immortality here."
Even if you take the cable car up Huang Shan, be prepared to spend around 5 hours climbing up and down, admiring the beauty of the various peaks.
This cable car can apparently hold 101 persons.
Although the ascent might be tough on your legs, especially the knees when you have to descend on steep slope before ascending again, it will be worth it, as the view is really like a canvas.
The satisfied look of having climbed up and down several peaks.
This expedition didn't allow me the chance to marvel at the sea of clouds nor the burst of radiance at sunrise though.
