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.
