If you are visiting China, you will surely see The Great Wall and perhaps the Terracotta Warriors, but Huangshan should be on your China bucket list. There are so many beautiful sights and wonders here. It is crowded but not like the other places I mentioned. Your China trip would feel empty if you don’t visit Huangshan and this peak is very accessible to people with even limited physical abilities.

This is the first viewing spot after Yungu cable car. When I was there, I was blessed the view was great, with morning sun and clear blue sky. This place tends to be crowded with tour groups gathering at the pavilion. Climb up to a higher platform for beautiful landscape view.

Shixin Peak located near to Yungu Cable, about 2 km from Beihai Hotel
Normally after check in at Beihai or Xihai hotel we walk to explore Shixin Peak because this location only need 2-3 hours to explore.

Then the next morning wake up early to explore the Summits, the Flying Rock and Lotus Peak the most gorgeous peak, this location is need over 4-5 hours depends on your fitness.

At Shixin Peak after enjoy the gorgeous Sea Exploring Pine simply walk to the right step up to the top and you will see the breathtaking views overlooking to the 5 Fingers Peak and so many others cliffs side dramatically gorgeous it's like watching the 100's year's old paintings and if you go to opposites at the pavilion of Sun Rise you will view the Shixin Peak, so my recommendation is to views them all, most of the maps are in Cinese my tips is to download e maps in English and explore by yourself like i just did.

Make sure you check weather forcast, don't come on rainy season you see nothing but clouds.
Let me know if you need the maps

This peak carries a beautiful name that is difficult for any other language to successfully translate it, and certainly I am not among those capable of doing it. Anyway, I will try a different way therefore people would understand better...
Most of the famous scenic spots in China associated with a historical significance, usually a poem, a poet or scholar with a philosophy meaning behind it. The name of this peak, in direct translation "Beginning-to-beleive" lost all its original charm - but it is what it is - the name comes from a scholar so overpowered by the beauty of nature that upon witnessing the magical view he then started to believe that there is a higher being, and this is the place of higher being....
Yes, this is out of the world, and magical. Shixin Peak is not far from the cable way station, and probably 1/2 way between the Yungu (Cloud Valley) station and Beihai Hotel and there are two vintage view points (30meters apart) offering breathtaking vista of unbelievable nature wonder. As a photographer, the only way to make a nice image out of it is not a traditional super wide angle lens, in stead, use your iPhone for a panoramic image - or for those advanced photographers - stitch several shots to make the image - please believe me - prepare to spend lots of time to make this one of your best ever shot - spend time please! But don't forget that this is a public area - you may stay as long as you want (like I did) but every minute or so I have to step back to allow other people (usually holiday snapper and selfie enthusiasts) to come in for their shot then you can go back in.
This peak along is worth the trip - provided with good weather - and good weather is Huangshan defined as mixed of cloud, fog, rain, snow.... you may not get to see its best, but it would be one of best views you have seen anyway. Try a few days and a few trips (as I did) then you have better chance. This is purely a nature wonder.

Shixin Peak (or Beginning-to-Believe Peak, as it is indicated on many maps) is a short and easy detour from the hike up the Huangshan Mountain. It is absolutely worth visiting, as the views are amazing and different from the vistas you'll see in other parts of the mountain. There are several viewing platforms overlooking a deep and uninhabited valley punctuated by incredible vertical rocks. The peak is close to the cable car stop and Beihai Hotel, so it's always full of tour groups, but this does not detract from the visual splendor in front of you.

Absolutely breathtaking and majestic place. The views are incredible. Lots of walking to be done but nothing to full on. The weather was perfect for us so we had views at each peak we went to. Wish we could have spent more time up there but had to get back to our transport. Will definetly come back here if i get the chance. A must for all travelers

This park is well designed for tourists. The cable cars are a little on the pricey side but the climb up the first leg isn't really worth much in terms of views. I got the cable car up the first leg and walked the rest. The walks are well signposted and there are maps are the bigger intersections of paths.

It is designed to be easy for families to walk together and there are large picnic and rest areas along the way. You can even get carried up portions of the climb - prince box style - if you are unable to walk further. On my trip I saw every age bracket from baby to grandpa.

Pack plenty of water and food - as there is limited available up in the park and it is expensive because everything is carried up the mountains by Sherpers. (and these men are crazy fit, you might spot some, just don't get in their way) Also be aware that the weather changes quickly and it gets overcast and windy very suddenly.

The view from Shixin Peak is worth the day out.

It was first stop bu5 got interrupted with the raining. Thus we revisited the next day morning when the rain stopped. It was the first peak we climbed, so we were excited and eager to climb to the top right away. Actually, it was a twin peak, one peak with the inscribed rock and the other peak is with a gorgeous pine. It’s a vey pleasant hiking and we enjoyed a lot.

Great vantage point for the sunrise and it was very crowdedbut I still managed to find a location to see the sunrise. Pleasant location for the sunset but the opposite mountains hit its final descent. Nice views the rest of the time.

Located near the Yun Gu cableway ( around 1km), this spot is my favourite for good view of the granite peaks of Huangshan. Was lucky that the weather was sunny during my trip, however the absence of fog took some of the magic away. There's a mini peak with stairs that you can climb, but avoid the tour group as they would without doubt hoarding the spot with their endless poses for that perfect picture. Most tour group will stop here for 20 min. It is a good break to take a break as there's a pavilion where you can sit and spot the birds and squirrel.
