Huangshan

Mountain

Serk Cycling Beijing

Huangshan is claimed as the most astonishing mountain in the world. This remarkable mountain region is famous for many miracle scenes: illusory old Chinese pine trees, odd-shape stones, endless cloud sea, and variety of waterfalls.

Taiping Lake is flanked by forest and tree plantations offering a huge diversity of cycling terrain – from narrow riverside roads to long switchback climbs.

The area is also rich in culture, history and traditional architecture -rolling through the landscape on a bicycle is pure delight.

Each day Serk sent us off on an adventure through the hills with just the right mix of scenery, sweat and discovery on those tiny twisty backroads.
