A must visit for everyone who are interested in beautiful mountain scenery. It is advisable to visit during the not so busy time so that you can enjoy the scenery in peace. As this is a day trip, better to bring your own food as the food on the mountain is pricey and tasteless.

Most travellers to Huangshan start their journey from Shanghai or Hangzhou. There are two ways to reach the geopark, whichever way you go you will have to come to Tangkouzhen 汤口镇 first, that's where everything starts and ends, from here you take the shuttle bus to Huangshan geopark entrance. We start our journey from Hangzhou east bus station 汽车东站 after... More

Really interesting, one has to adjust ones expectations in China as natural parks here will not be anything like anywhere else you have visited. Not visited by many westerners so very little English spoken in the area.

Beautiful scenery! A definite for any visitor! Many, many steps! Most of them steep with no handrails! Be prepared! Take enough water!

Huangshan is amazing. However, many people (myself included for not doing enough homework I guess) don't realize that to truly enjoy Huangshan, you better be prepared to walk a lot, and mostly uphills. The mountain is enormous! Even though you take the cable car to the peak, there are still hundreds and hundreds of steps to deal with to all... More

Huangshan probably offers one of the most amazing sceneries in China in a very well organized and easy accessible park. The sunset, sunrise, sea of clouds, umbrella trees, amazing rock formations... It's all there and it's breathtaking. The downside of Huangshan however is that it's made for one kind of tourism specifically: Chinese mass tourism. That means the whole experience... More

Probably one of the most beautiful places on earth. We were lucky to have a clear day to enjoy the trek around the mountain. The view points were excellent. And nice to see monkeys in the wild. The path around the mountain is wide and very safe, but can also be busy at some of the vantage points. The gondola... More

Beautiful mountains. We arrived at 8 am on the overnight train from Shanghai, hiked up the eastern steps (which are a bit grueling) and stayed our first night at the BeiHai hotel. We hiked around the mountain the second day and cable carred it down to the hot springs. If I had to do it again I would spend 3... More

Views are amazing as are the crowds. Took the cable car up, if you travelling independently you need to pay for the bus to the entrance and entry to the park separately. If you are not staying the night at hotel (book first) the last car down is at 5:00. It is extremely crowded loads of steps and concrete walkways... More
