“Heaven on Earth-just above the clouds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

It was a 5 hour coach ride from Shanghai, the local guide mentioned an express train should be in place by 2014 so cutting the travelby half the time perhaps. First night was spent at the foot of the mountian, and 2 N at the mountian top-- hotels a bit pricey- average cost from $80-150 easy.
We started off with a 9 minute cable car up the mountian (RMB 80), Entrance fee to National Park RMB240, our guide took us via the scenic route(11km) 4hours, hired porters for our backpacks- cost form RMB80-180, we were lucky and had good weather on Day 01 during our ascent up the mountain, Stunning views, no wonder this place has inspired genertions of painters/artist. We stayed at Best Western Spa resort onthe lower level (US$100) and 2N at Xihai ($80-140) a lovely 5star & and older 4 star hotel wing. 2N was just right because Day 2 at the top of the mountain was a NO View to due heavy fog & clouds-Day 3 , for the descent was only a 2km wlk to the other cable car station (RMB 80). Yes I will visit again--best time is August/September/October 3rd & 4th week, skip first 2 weeks of October when the whole China is on holiday mode.

“One of the most beautiful areas you can visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I had seen this area depicted in paintings by Chinese artists and on some docmentaries but still wasn't prepared for the absolute beauty of the place. Travelled along an 11,000ft long cable car journey which took about 10 minutes to reach the area we were visiting. There are lots of walks all I might add up and down lots of steps but you don't have to walk to far to see the majesty of the mountains and why so many people visit the place. The padlocks in one area reminded me of the Cinque Terra but the canyons, bridges and whole place gives one an immense pleasure and I can see why it has been heritage listed. Long may it be protected for its an area of outstanding beauty not easily matched.

“Tangmou Village - near MtHuangshan gate entrance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2011

There are many hotels and restaurant, there including one called Zhongrui Haiyi which I stayed - has cheap, clean, well furnished room and good restaurant. Surrounding area is very interesting with a nice river flowing thro the village. It is near the mountain gate entrance where the bus terminal (5 minute walk across the river bridge) to catch bus to cable car station.
