Shanghai-Huangshan 2D/1N is this doable?

Hello all,

We are young, fit, Mandarin-speaking couple looking for a nice getaway from the city. quick questions:


arrive Tunxi 15:00 from Shanghai

visit Hongcun in the afternoon

Stay overnight in Tunxi or Tangkou (which is better?)

Day 2:

get early cable car Yuping or Taiping (which is more scenic on the way up?)

hike for 5-6 hours

take late afternoon cable car down

dinner in Tunxi

22:30 flight back to Shanghai

Which cable car/hikes would be most scenic and less crowded to do?

Would you say that sunset on the mountain is a must-see? (I can possibly extend the trip by one night if it is worthwhile).

Thank you!

If you want to get the cable early before the crowds arrive and the wait get to 3 hours, better stay close to the base. Not sure about sunset but understand that the quality of what you will seeing is largely dependent on weather. I was lucky but I have friends who saw nothing at all.
