Thank you for your inquiry.

For direct rail, high speed rides is the only option. If you can transfer in other city first, you may consider to take an overnight sleeper train from Xi'an to Hefei and then change to a high speed train to Huangshan. By taking hard sleeper and second class seat, the cost could be lowered to about CNY400 per person. It can also save you one night hotel cost too. Hope this information can help you.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We can arrange delivery to some hostels in Hungshan. The express cannot reach some remote area like inside the scenic area. Or you may consider to offer us hotel/hostel in other cities. The express will be send out in advance and reach your hotel/hostel one or two days before your checkin date. You can collect the express from hotel directly. You do not need to sign the express in person with passport.
