This isn't real hiking - you will get a bus halfway up, followed by climbing steps and walking along paths. The peak is almost ruined by having a huge souvenir shop built on it. Despite this Huangshan still allows for some amazing views and is still worth the trip. When we went a thunderstorm descended on the mountain yet it... More

Hello everyone, I travelled on 13.3.15-14.3.15 which is during the raining season. As good info and advice can be useful for travellers, who don't speak chinese. That's why I want to share my experience in Huangshan. As most of you will want to visit yellow mountain, so I will spare you from me telling you how awesome it was... Getting... More

We visited Yellow Mountain on a Saturday afternoon. The weather was cloudy with light drizzle. We entered the park through the South entrance, parked in the main parking lot and took a shuttle to the park we opted for the cable car ride so we were driven a good way up the mountain, then transferred to the cable cars that...

This place is definitely worth the time and effort it takes to get there! The best part about our trip to China so far :) Here's how we did it: Stayed in Tunxi at the Ancient Town Youth hostel. From there we organised and paid for a bus (22RMB) to Huangshan leaving at 6:20am. This bus took about 1hr 15mins... More

Is one of the places where you are happy to spend all day with walking. I took the cable car for quite some high point and walk the rest as i intended to take pictures of all the nice rock formations. In April you find snow is some of the shade places!

Since we were in total whiteout conditions, I can only review the infrastructure and experience visiting the park. I'm sure if the scenery had been visible, this review would be more positive. It's important to note that there is not one Huangshan peak - it's a complex of peaks, trails, and and several different cable car routes. Our plan was... More

A great trek - took almost 8 to 10 hours to climb up and get down as we were not prepared for such a long trek and were not in good shape. You can manage by yourself and no need of a guide as it is more adventurous that way. There are two options. Once you reach the sun set/rise... More

There are so many hugh grinite rocks with various shape. It is attractive during daytime and sunset. Sea of clouds are beautiful especially at sun rise. It can be done within a day using rope way. But stay one night at the top and walk on/down is much better. We stayed one night at the spring hotel(Best Western), one night... More

This was my second visit to Huangshan and this time I didn't make the mistake of visiting during a national holiday (avoid during these times as it is unbearably crowded). It is simply a magnificent and beautiful mountain and I would happily climb it a 3rd time. As the title says a must for all hiking enthusiasts.

This was my number one thing to do in China. I had researched and researched, saved all the gorgeous photos and looked at them till they were ingrained in my brain. Normally with this kind of thing when you get there and see the thing you've built up so much it's bit of a disappointment. This was far from that.... More
