The most efficient way to reach Huangshan from Kunming
Is it recommended to use high speed train transfer option or the flight to Hefei and then to Huangshan by high speed rail?

The fastest way should be by flight, but I would recommend Shanghai for transfer. It is important to choose Shanghai Hongqiao Airport as your landing airport so it is convenient to change to train service at Hongqiao Railway Station nearby.

Thank you for your inquiry.
For this transit trip, you will need to buy two different tickets, one for each trip. It is advisable to collect the paper tickets out for both trips in advance to save your time needed during this transfer. The service fee will be charged per ticket, therefore, for this transfer trip, the service fee will be charged for each leg. Hope for your kind understanding.
