My family reached Huangshan in a rainy morning. It seemed we had a bad luck. However, it turned out to be not so bad. Firstly, there was not many tourists queuing for cable car. We could take the first cable car right away. Secondly, we had a chance to see "sea of cloud" and we must say it's a spectacular... More

We flied from Thailand to Shanghai, boarded a bus to Hangzhao then Huangshan (about 400 km.) We choose to stay 2 days on the mountain top at Beihai Hotel which is the best there( all Chinese leaders including Hu Jin Tao had visited this hotel). The services and food are excellent except hot water in the room is not available... More

I went to visit Huangshan on Sunday and it was a mistake. There were so many people. You could not enjoy the scenery with crowd everywhere . Most tour guide had their microphone turned to the highest volume. It was like a fish market. In addition, it was a rainy day. The visibility was very low. So, there was not... More

I first climbed this mountain in 1984 when I first came to China. 30 years later, I returned with my wife and youngest son. A lot has changed in 30 years. For one, cable cars make it a much better experience. There are more hotel options. The sights, however, are still the same, just breath taking. It is one of... More

One of the most beautiful mountain sceneries in China. You can see why famous poets and artists get their inspirations from. Painting that dates back 100s' of years have the similar landscapes and sceneries...wow! Be prepared to do a lot of walking and climbing...drop everything at the hotel and take a day pack with light jacket (depending on month of... More

If you only visit one mountain in China, let it be this one! It really isn't a hype, it is a really wonderful place , even if at times it can be too crowded ( but this is a fact of life in any of China's world heritage sites!). We visited in early April and despite some earlier poor weather... More

Too crowded with about 10,000 people at the top. Waited 1.5 hours just to get into the cable car to go up. Another long queue on the way down.

Went for a one day tour to the mountains. The bus from huangshan city to the mountain transfert station was cheap ( 22 rmb ) but one way. On arrival at the transfert station you have to buy another ticket to drive you to the entrance of the mountain ( 19 rmb, one way). This was for chinese standards well... More
