Since 2001, travelers have been venturing to this top destination for incredible views of the Xihai Area, scenic overlooks and truly epic landscapes. Visitors can tour the entire area, which covers some 25-kilometers across an easy-to-follow circular route, and winds past dozens of stunning rock formations.
A network of steep steps leads travelers through ever-changing landscapes, which include pine forests and rocky crags. The memorable Fairy-walking Bridge guides visitors to the White Cloud Area, where a more difficult climb for the truly fit results in some of the area’s best views. Those in the know say that even the stairs can be difficult to navigate, so the Xihai Grand Canyon is best left to visitors in good health—and with good hiking shoes.
Xihai Grand Canyon is located in the western part of the Huangshan Scenic Area between the Cloud dispelling Pavillion and the White Cloud Area. It measures 25 square kilometers.
