2-hour trekking along Xin'anjiang River

Xin'anjiang River is the mother river of Huangshan, flowing down to Qiandao Lake, and the total length is 242KM. The river is clean and clear, and on both sides are poetic and picturesque green hills, green streams, white walls and dark tiles. Along it there are strong folk customs, crowds of miraculous sceneries and humanity gatherings. The river has been regarded, by experts from home and abroad, as a major product of Huangshan's new resource generation worth introducing to European and American markets. Sailing on the river, one sees houses of Hui style with white wall and gray tiles here and there on both sides. The fir, bamboo, tea bushes, loquat and orange forests on the hills extend as far as you can see, displaying a charming water landscape in southern China.

The Xin'anjiang River is a major waterway of vital importance to the local economy, shipping out timber and local agricultural products and transporting in salt and manufactured goods. Tunxi, Yuliang Town and Shendu in Shexian County along the river used to be bustling river ports in the old days. There is still in Yuliang Town a one kilometer long Old Street which used to be the marketplace.

There are numerous scenic spots along the Xin'anjiang River. At Bingtan which is close to the river source, there is the mausoleum of Wang Youdun, an imperial minister in the Qing Dynasty who was a native of Xiuning. Standing around the mausoleum are carved stone human figures, horses, tigers, sheep and lions with graphic features. In Tunxi and Shexian County, the river embraces ancient pavilions and bridges as well as clusters of lakes. Further down the river, one can see the busy rural and urban scenes. On the lower reaches of the Xin'anjiang River there is the pearl-like Qiandao Lake. It has never failed to impress the visitors with its breathtaking beauty. The travel route from the West Lake in Hangzhou to Qiandao Lake, Shexian and and finally to Huangshan has become a hot tourist line.
