Make sure you include this in your plan when you visit Huanshan Mountain. Stunning views and scenery and plenty of places to sit and rest which you will need with all the steps taking you up and down.

Reviews mentioned that the xihai grand canyon is special. It is nice, steep stairs and narrow paths, good scenery but not grand! and definately very noisy. see also my review of the Huangshan scenic area for more info.

Try to arrive early since huge tour groups make passing through this area very difficult. We arrived around 13:00 and it took hours to pass through walkways and stairs made for one or two people. When you add hikers from the other direction, the wait...More

This is a long loop that goes around the western portion of Yellow Mountain. It offers breaktaking scenery, and I highly recommend it. Plan about 3 hours to hike to the bottom, maybe more if it is crowded because the narrow path will have bottlenecks...More

I would definitely store your large backpack. The shear volume of people in the tour groups makes the walk through the canyon very difficult and at times frustrating. We brought enough water and a picnic lunch in a daypack.
