About Wuhu City


Wuhu literally means ‘weedy lake’ and as a description of the city it may not be too inaccurate. It is located in the southeast of Anhui Province, on the south bank of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. It is 119 kilometers (74 miles) from the capital city of the province, Hefei. It neighbors Jianghuai Plain to the north and the mountainous area of south Anhui. The Yangtze River crosses the city from southwest to northeast.

Physical Features: The city stands on the alluvial plain of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and is comprised of floodplains, terraces, and low hills. The predominant geographical feature of the area is alluvial plain, and because of its plentiful supply of water the town has always been considered a production center for both fish and rice.

Climate: Wuhu is in the subtropical zone and enjoys a humid monsoon climate with plenty of sunshine and rainfall. Its annual average temperature is 15-16C (59-61F). January is the coldest month and August is the hottest. The rainy season in the city extends from spring to early winter with the heaviest concentration usually from mid-June to early July.

The best way to get to either of these mountains is to book a tour through your hotel or a travel agent.
