A roller coaster-like train takes visitors of the Huangshan mountain range in China to a heavenly ride that highlights its picturesque natural landscapes.
Situated in the province of Anhui, the mountain range is known for its peculiarly-shaped granite peaks, pine trees, hot springs, winter snow, and majestic views of the clouds from above.

According to SoraNews24, a one-way trip which carries tourists between Paiyunxi Station and Tianhai Station lasts for about eight minutes and costs 100 yuan ($14.50).
Huangshan, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in China, is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its scenery and for its role as a habitat for rare and threatened species.
Its stunning beauty is often the subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, and now, even modern photography.
