We took the cable car up to the top of Huangshan and spent a busy day hiking (er, a better term would be walking) to the various lookout points. We hired a guide (David Wei) who drove us the 3.5 hours from Hangzhou and went a few days after Christmas 2013. It was a great time to visit because it wasn't crowded, making it peaceful and enjoyable. We also had great weather. It was chilly, of course, but the sun was out and we actually broke a sweat with all the walking we did (there are lots of stairs to climb). Plus, it had snowed the week before and the snow was still on the ground (though not on the walkways), making it really feel like Christmastime. The views from all the various lookout points were amazing even though the haze of pollution was visible in the distance. We would recommend visiting this beautiful spot! Definitely take a camera to capture all the great views. You probably don't need a guide for Huangshan, but it was sure nice having a private car on such a long ride.
