Cable Cars on Huangshan Mountain
To fully experience the beauty of Huangshan Mountain, you have to reach the peak areas. With the assistance of cable cars, 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 Cable Car
|Ticket Office of Cloud Valley Cable Car|
2. Jade Screen Cable Car
3. Taiping Cable Car
4. West Sea Valley Cable Car
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 cable cars 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.

Winter Tour Tips
I'd like to know when and where (and which cable car is the best option to get there) is the best place to photograph the sea of clouds in Huangshan. I'd like to visit in January.
Yes, the maintenance time will be different.
