Absolutely fantastic scenery. We went off season so not so crowded but some paths were closed for maintenance. If staying near the cable car, best to get up early before all the people come out (check cable times). Good footpaths but I did find the...More

We were at Huangshan in the beginning of winter, December 5th 2018. Our guide, Mr Thomas Gao, brought us on a hike to the Grand Canyon of Huangshan. Along the way we were really mesmerised by the picturesque mountain ranges and the beautiful pine trees...More

In winter, there are not too many tourists. Even nearly half of the mountains are closed, the rest of it looks beautiful with snow. The staff working up the mountains tried their best in sweeping away the snow so that the route will not be...More

Wonderful place to go if you like mountains and trekking. But it is inaccessible except by foot after you take a cable car. There are no flat surfaces and the trek to the hotels is a very arduous up and down sine wave. Leave your...More

I have great pictures from my time at Huangshan, and not-so-great memories. It is overrun. I know this because I went in November during low season, and it was overrun then. The crowd at my sunrise viewing was twenty deep. Imagine waking up at 5:30am,...More

Visited 5 times and its beauty still stuns me. Cable car and monorail makes a trip easy. I would recommend you to stay on the mountain one night and at spa hotel the last night.

Don't miss this extraordinary mountain. It's to travel inside a Chinese painting - an absolute wow. You can join an organised tour or buy a ready made package. By far the best is to tailor make your own exploration with a local independent guide. Everyone...More
