Huangshan, a granite massif consisting of 36 separate peaks and rising above 1,800 m, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Frequently shrouded in mist, the jagged peaks create a spectacular landscape of great interest to tourists.
In order to attract more travelers from home, so far Huangshan Airport has opened 21 domestic air routes connecting Huangshan and other cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, Xi’an, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Hefei etc.. It also plans to open regular direct flights between Huangshan and Hong Kong in summer or autumn next year. These flights will bring more convenience to tourists in Hong Kong.
