Climbing this peak is most challenging in Huangshan. We came from Yuping cable car station, which already requires 40 mins of hiking up and down to the base of this peak. There is a stall for drinks and snacks at the base. Highly recommend to...More

This peak is definitely one of the more challenging ones. I would suggest climbing on the southern side because its stairs are more vertical and will be more challenging to go down, especially on the knees. Plus, decending on the northern side will place you...More

The climb is hard but the hardest is that each climb is on steep dangerous rocks. For the brave heart, there is many climbs on edge. Strong wind

You can hike to this peak in a few hours from the bottom - and break off on a different path to see the other side of the mountains.

Not for the faint of heart the incredible views are matched only by the at times dangerous decents (heading down towards the west gate). A lot less crowded at the top than the others due to the steep climb! Well worth the effort!

You can see it from Yu-Ping-Lou. Second highest peak of Huangshan. High stepped cliffs. Roads get slippery in rain.

This is one of the most terrifying places in Yellow mountains. Hike to this peak is really steep and every step might be your last. However the feeling after conquering the mountain is great!

Walking around the Huanshan area requires good hiking or walking shoes and a walking stick if you want to be able to walk the next days as the 1000s of stair steps take their toll on your legs. Not for people who don't like heights...More
