“Huangshan trip possible with no Mandarin skills”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

With extensive research and internet searches you can plan a trip to Huangshan without joining a tour and with no Mandarin fluency.
I'm talking to the 1% of leisure travelers who do not want the confines of a packaged Huangshan tour, who want to determine their own itinerary and timeline.
Using Trip Advisor, Fodor's, Frommers, Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, CTS website and reading every blog written in English about Huangshan you can successfully plan a memorable trip for you and your family.
That said, we were at times envious of people who had handlers who could deal with logistics and miscommunication problems.
But we had the kindness of strangers who helped us out-all we had to do was ask.

Huangshan ranks # 1 by leaps and bounds.

“Amazing scenery!!!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The scenery is amazing, but it is too crowded (but normal in whole China).

We spent three days in the park, and two of them were foggy with little drizzle, but worth it.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

A great, somewhat expensive, hike.

The views are amazing and the cable car ride gives a different perspective.

Went during Golden Week - this aspect is not recommended.

“Magnificent, even in inclement weather”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went in September, both during rain with no real clearing (very misty) and on a clearer weekend day. Each time was magical, although crowds were less during the rainy weekday. This is a VERY popular tourist spot for Asians, but not many Caucasians seem to be there. It is hard to say why not, since it is a wonderful spot with easy access and well maintained trails.
Beware, there are many steps and the longer you hike, the more your leg muscles will ache later. The costs do add up, but perhaps less well known is that you can get return admission for free another day if you ask for it before entry. These are truly beautiful mountains, especially with the swirling mists. Don't miss it. Take care around the wild monkeys and visit one or two of the ancient villages in the area too.

“Enjoyed A Snowy Visit @ Mt Huangshan!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Amazing Views! Truly Spectacular! Visit in Oct-Dec for a Autumn-Winter experience! Take the Telpher from Tangkou & cover the nearest points since one cannot cover the whole of the mountains! Try to scale the observatory right at the top!
