Huangshan Mountain (Yellow Mountain) is a designated world heritage park and arguably the most famous mountain in China (before recent challenges from Tibet, Yunnan and other tourist destinations). Besides famous geological explorer's admiration, Chinese people are fascinated by numerous paintings by artists for hundreds of years. I have visited Yellow Mountain several times and made a trip with my wife... More

The Chinese government listed Huangshan #5 in all Chinese attraction behind Forbidden Palace, Great Wall, Summer Palace in Beijing, West Lake in Hangzhou. By shear natural beauty, you have to see it to know why it is on most Chinese people's bucket list, "climb Huangshan". We went with a private guide on a weekday, there was no line. You have... More

We went to Huangshan, China on the 22 September 2014 on a free and easy tour. It was a mistake going on a Sunday morning. At the foothill, we met some tour guides who frightened us saying there were about 700 people queuing to take the cable car up. They can help us if we pay a service charge of... More

Huangshan is totally a different mountain landscape - the rock formations, the multiple peaks, the pines that cling to the vertical rock faces, the mist and sea of clouds ... and then, throw in the crowds (comprising mainly local tourists led by guides blaring stories of the various pine trees/rock forms through their loud hailers), and the thousands of steps...

Beautiful natural mountain carving.We visited on 5th Sept 2014, Visit to this mountain was awesome. Unbelievable dispersing clouds. At every foot different views with beautiful granite stone mountains and trees. The more you hike the more adventure you will get. Visit to Huangshan mountain is worth when you are in China and must visit or you will miss the true... More

Join a package tour from Joytour, Perth. It was Shanghai and Huangsan. Overall good value except for few shopping we need to go. These are shopping trips for silk, tea, jade which over very overpriced. Sales persons did not force but try very hard to convince buying. Huangsan has very beautiful view, need to be fit and healthy to climb... More

Okay, sorry folks. You aren't going to have one of those "I'm the only person here" experiences at this place--but who cares? Is that why you travel, to go to beautiful places alone, extracted from the people that inhabit the land around it? You should just go to outer space; but for those of us who accept that this is...

Huangshan, a must for every mountain lover. We put up two nights at the peak, first night at Xihai Hotel (best location), and second night at Baiyun Hotel (full of regrets). We took the cable car from Yungusi station and reached the White Goose Hill. From there, it was a stroll to Beginning-to-believe peak. Scenery was captivating. Then, we arrived... More
