Wonderful mountains scenery, beautiful pine trees, and always changing cloud. If weather is right, best place to watch sunset and sunrise up in the mountain is to stay overnight in Jade-screen Hotel. The famous welcome pine tree is right outside this hotel.
Unfortunately too many stairs everywhere on the mountain from one sightseeing spot to another. Also local visitors ignore No-smoking signs.

We were very fortunate. At the base of the mountain, it was cold and foggy, with overcast skies, generally miserable. As we ascended in the cable car and rose above the cloud deck, the sun was shining brightly on the mountain peaks. The rest of the day was warm, with gorgeous sunset and moonrise. The next morning was overcast and cool, followed by a snowstorm. So, we got to see the mountain in all kinds of weather and visibility, but the pilgrims who came to the top on the mountain as we left in the snowstorm would have been very cold, wet and miserable, with not much to see given the low visibility. Not much you can do to affect the weather, but ... it's gorgeous scenery if you're lucky enough to see the peaks. Of note, no roads, no pack animals. So, everything has to be brought in by cable car followed by carriage by human porters. Be prepared to hike, or hire a sedan chair to be carried like a Qing dynasty dignitary.

Away from the modern and crowded towns, Huangshan will take you to the postcard-like sceneries you want to see. Bring your best camera and enjoy the infinite landscape of mountains fading on the horizon. Avoid going in July/August --> very crowded; but even on the hottest days, you'll be walking up from say 38°C and have pleaseant 23°C on the peak with some fresh brise here and there. If you are not the sportiest, you can take the calbe car for the first half up (as there isn't much to see), and then walk up the second half to the peaks. I went up in the morning, and missed the last cable car to get down (around 3 or 4pm), so I just went down by myself: seems sometimes like endless stairs, but totally doable! Whenever you're tired, sit down 5min, take some cool water and a little bread, think about Goku, and keep walking!
PS: There are some beautiful tales about The Monkey King (Sunwukong/Son-Goku), related to Huangshan.
Enjoy guys, totally worth it <3

The scenery is beautiful and seems to be the cleanest place in China.
All the food, drinks, building materials, all necessities like bedsheet....are carried by the locals, pure human power. Its policy is to keep clean and environmental friendly. But not productive and you can see the strain for these carriers face. It should dedicate 1 or 2 cable cars for these items to be carried up to save time and be productive.
