-Smart Tips:

  • As a Huangshan tour insider, we recommend a less-explored trail from Back Hill to Front Hill.
  • Get a light pack and leave your not-needed luggage to your private driver, which is a key to full enjoyment and exploration of Huangshan.
  • Go to bed early and sleep tight if you'd like to catch the sunrise in the morning.
  • Short cut: A monorail is available running between the main peak and the bottom of the West Sea Grand Canyon, stairs between which are very narrow and steep. It takes about only 5 minutes down to save you 1 hours and energy , and costs about US$13 (80 yuan).

  • Beginners, children, and seniors' choice: After descending the cable car and walking for about 30 minutes via mostly down stairs to the hotel, you will firstly have a buffet lunch.
