Took a trip by car, then bus and finally a 14 minutes steep rope way. Very nice rocky (stone) mountain. Excellent view from the top. Rope way is quite steep, visitors with vertigo, alto phobia & week heart may avoid.

Our tour guide, Mike, was very knowledeable and informative. He took such good care of us all the time and went out of... More

We arrived when it had rained for 2 days. Our afternoon was washed and misted out. It was miserably cold and wet. The next morning we woke up to see that it had snowed overnight, and we dressed warmly to go out and see the sunrise. It was a spectacular few seconds. However the light of the morning sun made...

So , as we started our climb from the east side , we did not take any cable car. The stairs seemed infinite. It was a difficult and hard climb and not very much to see. Reaching the top around evening/night , we stayed at the top . Hotels at the top are around 200 Yuan . The next morning... More

One of my highlights of my time spent in China was Huangshan or otherwise known as Yellow Mountain! It is quite expensive for the admission into the Mountain but it is definitely worth every penny! We got the cable car up which was an experience in itself and then hiked down the mountain which took around 4-5 hours. One part... More

As someone who enjoys hiking, Huangshan was an amazing place. With 2 friends I hiked up the mountain starting at east gate and we made our way up to the white goose peak. From there we saw all the peaks that were open. Unfortunately the lotus peak was closed. Must see for those who like hiking. Breathtaking views. Recommend 2... More

We took cable car went up and down. Still, there are ton of stairs to go to all places, with ton of people around you. The weather changed quickly and we don't see sunset and sunrise. Beihai hotel is nice to stay. Remember to take hiking pole with you.

Well, get ready to walk.... and walk.... and go up and down.... the mountain has more than 6000 degrees on the way.... If you love to take photos, you should sleep in the mountain but, remember: since is hard to go up and go down, bring food! The hotels and restaurants are quite expensive!

Drove to the initial entrance from Huangshan city, took a bus to what we thought was the cable car, a 20 minute walk from the bus terminal to the cable car station followed and then a 30-minute ride to the top of the mountain, with amazing views on the way up (and down, of course). The time taken to get... More

We got super lucky with weather, got beautiful mountains bathing in sun for two days. Quite a lot of snow along the way up and down as well, but it was melting fast. Slippery stairs didnt bother us, as there werent that many, but had to be careful. Both ways up and down we decided to walk. And when I... More
