Telphers Guide in Yellow Mountain
To fully experience the beauty of Yellow Mountain (Huangshan), you have to reach the peak areas. With the assistance of telphers, this is made much easier. This scenic area has developed this kind of transport since 1986. Now there are totally four on it. They can be described as follows:
1. Cloud Valley Telpher
|Ticket Office of Cloud Valley Telpher|
2. Jade Screen Telpher
3. Taiping Telpher
4. West Sea Valley Telpher
How to choose the appropriate one among the four? It depends on the location of your hotel and your sightseeing plan. If you climb from the north gate, your only choice is the Taiping Cable Car starting at Pine Valley Nunnery (Song Gu An). If you plan to enter from the south gate, the other three are available. Jade Screen Cable Car is recommended if you lodge in the Yupinglou Hotel or Guangmingding Resort on the summit, or you want to climb Tiandu Peak on the first day after your arrival. If the hotel you booked is on the back mountain such as Beihai Hotel, Shilin Hotel or White Goose Resort, we suggest you take the Cloud Valley Cable Car.
Note: The telphers will be out of service in turn for a month during winter times for maintenance. Visitors should pay attention to the notices published on the official website if they want to visit in winter.
