Out of the city by a long way, for those who are not Olympic standard take the cable car, after which you can explore. Woud suggest that winter is probably the best time to visit. On my visit in September, temperatures were still high and most of the views were not available - mist everywhere

With a good cable car system. Beautiful awesome view. Easy to trek. Bring at least 3 bottles of water. And some energy biscuits or snacks. Bring along raincoats and umbrella or a hat. If you can bring an extra shirt for change. You will definitely sweat. Buy a walking stick and before you start your trek make sure you visit... More

My friends and i visited this place around late Feburary 2014, when the weather was still cooling, we did not perspired much while trekking up. The scenery is amazing and breathtaking where you can see beautiful mountains everywhere, and take rest points in-between to enjoy the scenery. However this place is too big, there are different mountains on top of... More

I search the internet, and finally decided to go with chinatours.net. We had a great time, and the organization was excellent. We decided to hike up, yes, climbed the Five Thousand steps to the top. Well worth it, you feel a sense of achievement compared to all those who too the cable car! We spent 2 nights in a hotel... More

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 beauty of nature.... More

Wow! My daughter and I visited Huangshan this week for a real blast, not for the faint hearted. The scenery is astoundingly beautiful, like all the Chinese paintings you've ever looked at wondering about the mountain forms, and absolutely worth visiting. We flew from Shanghei to Huangshan City (arrived at 15.30) and took a hotel transfer taxi to Tangou, a... More

It is a beautiful place, especially when the clouds disperse among the peaks. We were lucky to have fairly good weather while on the mountains. It is a very well maintained park; and am impressed with how clean they have kept it. Despite the big crowds, the littering is kept under control. Stayed in Tunxi (also known as Huangshan City)...

This spectacular views of this great mountain are located in the southern Anhui Province. This place is similar than ZhangJiaJie. From Shanghai is not that far, you can take a direct train and will be there between 4 or 5 hours.

So I made a trip to Huangshan in mid-August. I brought a tent and sleeping bag up with me, together with the necessary clothes and 2 day's worth of dried high-calorie foods. The pack weighed about 12-13kg, and I covered approx 10km each day. Day 1: I hiked from YuPing Cable Car station to Purple Cloud Peak, via Bright Summit... More

Yes, that's true! Even a tour guide like me also feel different and various if we trek in different time in one day or in one year, so the entire beauty with diversity could not be viewed once. Hope to see you in next season with more flexibility and variety to explore. For more tour info. on the summit of... More

Yellow Mt. is one of the most famous Chinese attraction. You'll meet travelers around the world while hiking the mountain. The surrounding areas are less than desirable, but simple. I would advise traveling with a group if you don't speak Chinese to learn the full history and appreciate the poetic beauty.
