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.

    Our guide was a great English speaker with a strong sense of responsibility. She tried her best to take care of everyone. And we had a lot of fun together.

    I was so happy with the picturesque Hongcun Village and Mt. Huangshan we visited on the 3 days Huangshan tour. All the troubles and fatigue were forgotten when I was immersed in such places. It was easy to ascend the mountain by taking a cable car. However, it would have been nicer at Hongcun Village to have more time.

    Our Huangshan tour guide was quite friendly and clear in introducing to us some interesting facts about Huangshan city.
    The Hongcun Village had wonderful waterscape and ancient characteristic architecture. The view of houses reflecting in the water was absolutely worth recording with a camera!

    A perfect Huangshan trip! We took the cable car up to the Huangshan Mountain and enjoyed the magnificent scenery as the cable car was moving. The scenery on the top of the mountain was grander. The peaks were various in shapes and sizes covered by strange pines and grotesque stones. I completely immersed in such an amazing view. I have strongly recommended this tour to my friends.

    After taking a cable car in the drizzling rain from the bottom of the Yellow Mountain, we saw the beautiful sea of clouds and clear sky. The mountain was so splendid and stunning. It is really a worthwhile trip! The guide explained many famous scenic spots for us. The porters impressed me most. It was not easy to deliver daily supplies to the mountain on foot. When we visited the Hongcun Village, the guide served very well, introducing many cultures and customs there. She also told us the history of Huizhou merchants which was really commendable. I spent a wonderful 5 days Huangshan photography journey and I was willing to share it with my family and friends! ... More

    The 3 days Huangshan tour was a good experience for me. The accommodation and meals were first class. We needn’t visit different scenic spots in a rush thanks to the relaxing itinerary. Free time at night.

    Travel China Guide was worth choosing! We received very good service from the time we ordered to the end of the Huangshan trip. The hotel on Mt. Huangshan was so close to the entrance of Grand Canyon of the West Sea and also provided us with comfortable rooms and entertainment places like Massage Treatment and Chess/ Poker Room. The stunning sunrise view of Yellow Mountain absolutely cannot be missed!

    If you want to climb in China, Yellow Mountain is a very good choice! Even in winter, the scenery of Yellow Mountain is very charming. Our guide had an ebullient personality, showing us the unique culture of the old villages and Yellow Mountain with great enthusiasm and dedication. Our 5-day Huangshan tour with Yellow Mountain was well worthwhile.

    Everything was exactly as scheduled. Our hotel was arranged with no issues. The guide was outgoing and explained in detail. The cycling trips to Hongcun Village and Mukeng Bamboo Forest were memorable and we saw a distinctive rural landscape of winter. It was very cold to go sightseeing by bike. Be sure to wear some thick clothes! Sincere thanks to Travel China Guide. We had traveled with you before and you will continue to be our first choice for the next trip to China.
