A railway threading through scenic spots in East China was completed Monday.

The 265-km long railway links Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province, with Huangshan city in Anhui province.

Dubbed the "Golden Tourist Railway," the Hangzhou-Huangshan railway makes a 1.5-hour trip between Hangzhou and Mount Huangshan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Travelers can hop on and hop off at the railway's stops to visit the picturesque Fuchun River, Tianmu Mountain, Thousand Islands Lake and the bamboo forest in Chun'an county.

Passenger services on the railway, which has a speed up to 250 km per hour, will be opened later this year.
