Imperial Tours: Luxury Tours in China - Destinations Slide Image


As surely as the sun rises, an armada of twisting stone spires and precarious pine trees poke through a sea of amber-wait-now-they’re-purple clouds. Seemingly endless flights of slippery flagstone steps lead past eerie peaks jutting like granite javelins out of the spooky Yellow Mountain fog.

There’s no need to hike the whole way up: a convenient cable car is located at the bottom of the mountain, not far from one of China’s best-preserved and most affluent Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) villages.

The merchant houses here are acknowledged as fine examples of the very finest Chinese rural architecture through their traditional emphasis on fengshui or geomancy, incorporating principles of sustainability within their structure centuries before the concept apparently even existed in English.
