As there was not much info on the web while I was researching for the trip, I hope my lengthy review will help for anyone who has the same trouble. We took a Thursday overnight train from Shanghai Railway Station to Huangshan Railway Station and it costs RMB170 for hard sleeper (triple decker bed). From Huangshan Railway Station, there are...

The first thing I'd say to anyone wondering if they should go is to really consider if you enjoy hiking. The climb isn't not easy. The mountain is all steps. But if you're in decent shape and have no injuries, you really can do it. Especially, because there are many paths to choose from depending on your comfort. We thoroughly... More

Top tip! You will want to start at the top and make your way down. There are so many stairs that your legs will be burning. Without a doubt this is one of the most magical placesI have ever visited. You will start from above the clouds and as you descend the views will open up to you . The... More

I went to the mountain with a Sinorama tour. It was a rainy day, and we couldn't see much, but you can't control the weather, so what are you going to do? The walk was difficult but nice after spending so much time on buses. Unfortunately, the system for exiting to the shuttles back down the mountain was such I... More

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.

My husband and I just returned from this 15 day tour of China with Sinorama. It was really fantastic! The hotels were all beautiful. The food was very good everywhere we went and so much of it. 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
