You really should come and explore while in China

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.

So amazing

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

Climbing
Oct 2018
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.

Twin peaks
Oct 2018 • Friends
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.

Grea5 for sunrise
Oct 2018 • Couples
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.

Beginning to Believe Peak
Sep 2018 • Friends
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.

Sometimes also known as Begin to believe peak, the view from here is spectacular.

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.

Hard work for a great viewpoint

There are plenty of stairs to reach the top but the end results is stunning views around the areas and so many places to take photos. Even though there are many other tourists, the experience was great.

The Most Spectacular and Must See
May 2018 • Family
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
