Huangshan was extremely crowded on the weekend we visited (admittedly the Monday was a major public holiday) to the point of claustrophobia! Would recommend a very early start if you're planning a day trip and also leave early (mid-afternoon). The scenery was every bit as...More

A bit of a trek to get into the mountains. Transport from Huangshan city, then a local bus and then a cable car to the start of the main areas. You can always walk instead of taking the cable car, but obviously this will limit...More

Sorry here the driver phones 13635598958 you can ask receptionist to call him for you
Hi all, We're 2 male (relatively fit) looking to spend 2 days one night at yellow mountain.(mid September 2018) I've read lots of reviews about the place and although everyone agrees that the place is amazing, it's quite confusing everything regarding the cable cars, West and East side, hotels and so on. I guess for those of us who haven't been there, we tend to think about a mountain and a couple of "gates" from where start the journey, but I'm assuming the place is huge with different ways up, hotels, routes and so on. So I'd like to ask someone with lots of patience who had been there to advise us on the best plan for a 2 days one night stay at yellow mountains. (1)We'll be traveling from Shanghai, so I've heard that (even if it doesn't make sense) it's faster to travel by bus. Is this true? If so, Where do we take this bus? (2)Then, please advise us on best place to go up the mountain(east, west, north mountain?...best time to start) we are willing to go up hiking. People say it's better to use the cable car for the way down? (3)As for hotels, I see different opinions about this. So, can you recommend a relatively good (quality - price) hotel on top of the mountain? (4)The plan is to see the sunset and sunrise.(any recommendations for a good spot for these?) (5)Feel free to share any other tips of advice you may think could be of help (clothing, food, prices, warnings etc) Thank you very much in advance.
