Huangshan - Best Month to Visit

We are looking at travelling to Huangshan to stay overnight on the mountain two or three nights total.

We are going to try and see the sun rise, do some hiking, photography, and especially, we hope to see the sea cloud.

We want to avoid being caught on the rain especially as the walking trails may be slippery - much more difficult to hike when it is wet and raining.

There are three possible times when we can go:

- end of May

- middle or end of October

- December

If we go in October, we are wondering what the foliage colour will be like on the mountain. Is the sea cloud visible?

If we go in the winter - we hope to see frost on the trees and some snow so the mountains look frosty and white - is this possible to see in December? Is the sea cloud visible in December?

When is the best time to visit in the winter if you are looking for the best winter scenery?

Any help is appreciated - thank you.

We is the best time to be assured of frost on the trees and snow, like what we see in the famous winter scenes photos of Huangshan?

Thank you for your reply - it sounds like it does not matter if we go in May or October.

More likely to encounter rain in late May. I would vote for mid October when the leaves are turning. I have not been there in December.

I went in mid-November few years back, and encountered snow season. Quite picturesque - white all the way round ;oD

Oct is the best choice. Least possibility of both rain and snow.
