The Huangyangjian Scenic Area in Dinghai district of Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province, is known for its pleasant sights, and is one of the best retreats in the province to enjoy a peaceful and quiet getaway.

Huangyangjian Mountain, which is located within the scenic area, has the highest peak in Zhoushan.

At the foot of the mountain is Xiaozhan village, where a family temple was built in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) to commemorate Yu Tianxi, a top official in the dynasty.

Those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city can choose to go hiking in the mountain.
