How to Plan a Private Tour to Huangshan

Normally it takes 3 to 4 days to explore the popular attractions in Huangshan. If you are a bit pressed for time, you can just schedule 3 days to visit the Yellow Mountain with one night hotel stay on the mountain. In this case, you'll have chances to enjoy the stunning sunset or sunrise in addition to admiring the sheer beauty of the Yellow Mountain. If you have 4 days for the private vacation tour, we suggest you include a side trip to one or two old villages of Huizhou, such as Hongcun, Xidi or Tangmo for the unique Ming and Qing style local residences, the traditional rural lifestyle as well as the delightful countryside scenes.

For those who are the outdoorsy type, go hiking in the Yellow Mountain and the old villages is definitely a great choice to get in touch with nature and see the locals go about their daily lives. It also becomes popular to go cycling from village to village and have fun.

Travel Tips for Yellow Mountain Visit

  • We suggest you travel light as much as possible. Hotels in Tunxi usually offer free left-luggage service for their guests. You can prepare backpack to take only necessities with you instead of the heavy and rolling suitcases, just because after getting off from the cable car in Yellow Mountain, there is still nearly 30 minutes' hiking along the winding path, which has many steps.
  • Although the temperature is 8C (46F) cooler in the mountain than in the city area, you will perspire easily in hiking especially during the daytime. To avoid catching a cold, please change your damp underwear in time.
  • It is rainy in Yellow Mountain, but there is seldom a series of wet days. The abrupt change from rain to sunshine in the same day is frequent. Don't feel bad if it happens to rain during your visit. Most likely you will be rewarded with splendid views of the Sea of Clouds, rainbow flying over peaks, waterfalls, rosy dawn or sunset glow after the rain.
  • Taking Huangshan tour itinerary during the Golden Week of the National Day from Oct 1st to Oct 7th is not recommended since the sightseeing spots will be crowded with domestic visitors.

    The itinerary of our 4-day Huangshan tour was well arranged and our guide did a good job of explaining some facts about Yellow Mountain. The climbing requires good physical strength, but you can also take a cable car to the peak.

    As a whole, this Huangshan tour was a flexible and smooth trip. The yellow Mountain was fabulously worth visiting! When we visited, there were a lot of tourists. Some mountain roads were narrow and the waiting time was a bit long. But we just took advantage of this waiting time to enjoy the beautiful sea of clouds deeply. The Hongcun Ancient Village provided a place to relax in peaceful environment.

    Our guides were dedicated and experienced. The hotel in Huangshan was equipped with recreation facilities and offered hearty breakfast. Very grateful to TCG for arranging a marvelous trip for us at a reasonable price! ... More

    I would like to admire the beauty of Huangshan in winter. The trees standing above the Yellow Mountain were covered with snow. The white peaks of Yellow Mountain and slowly drifting sea of clouds created a tranquil ‘wonderland’. Although it was cold, the one day Huangshan tour was quite worthwhile. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery different from other seasons.

    The Huangshan tour is amazing! The sunrise view over clouds was stunning in the early morning and the fantastic rocks were unique and varied in shape. The villages included in our itinerary were worth exploring. Five stars for the luxury and comfortable hotels!

    A Chinese friend of mine recommended me a Huangshan tour. He told me that Mt. Huangshan was the most beautiful of all the mountains in China. The strange pines, absurd stones and cloud sea at the peak made a wonderful picture! As I was traveling alone, the guide took good care of me and helped me take lots of amazing photos. Many thanks!

    I was pleased with the 4-day in-depth hiking of Yellow Mountain. The guide was friendly and competent to give us a clear and interesting explanation. The time was well controlled. Her good work won our unanimous praise. The Yellow Mountain had beautiful scenery and the ancient buildings of Hongcun Village were worthy to visit.

    It was a great 3 days Huangshan tour! The Yellow Mountain was very beautiful! The accommodation surprised me. The hotels we stayed in had good facilities and clean rooms. I liked the served western buffet breakfast. There was no shopping stop on the whole trip. The guide was patient and offered thoughtful service. The historical stories she told were very interesting and attractive. It was rainy when we visited Hongcun Village. Thank the guide very much for holding up the umbrella for me while I was taking photos. I would definitely be back and look forward to seeing the sea clouds next time! ... More

    It was my first trip with TravelChinaGuide. The 4 days Huangshan tour exceeded my expectations. The Yellow Mountain was really astounding and splendid. The guide was enthusiastic and professional. It is suggested that you stagger the peak season because there will be many people in the scenic spots. I was satisfied with this trip. It would be better if it didn't rain all the time…
