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.

    I took my wife to Huangshan for a rare vacation. When I was booking the tour, the consultant answered all my questions patiently. If I sent an email to ask any problems about the itinerary and the materials that need to be submitted, she replied to me in time. Even before I started my trip, I was looking forward to it with great anticipation! The Huangshan indeed didn’t disappoint me. The itinerary, accommodation, and scenic spot were better than most of the trips I had experienced. We spent an unforgettable time. I was so glad to have such a wonderful 3 days Huangshan tour! ...

    The itinerary of the 3 days Huangshan tour was fulfilling. The guide accompanied us all the time. It was a good choice to experience local life in Tunxi Old Street. The weather of Mount Huangshan was changeable. We caught up with the rain and fog on the Yellow Mountain. It was a pity that I didn’t view the scenery clearly… There were many people in Hongcun Village. It had a good cultural atmosphere. I saw someone paint beside the pond. I not only enjoyed the beautiful scenery but learned the local customs and history through the guide’s explanation. This tour was worthy to recommend to everyone! ... More

    The hotel was luxurious and comfortable with perfect facilities. The whole itinerary organized by the guide was reasonable and tight. It gave us a chance to fully enjoy the beautiful Yellow Mountain and Hongcun Village. When we arrived at Hongcun Village, I felt a kind of quiet and peaceful beauty. There was no crowd and complicated work there. It was a good place to relax and avoid noisy city life. The guide and driver picked us up at the airport and sent us to the hotel. There were many delicious foods in Tunxi Old Street. I tasted a lot and bought souvenirs for my parents. The Yellow Mountain was also very attractive and splendid. A joyful 4 days Huangshan tour! ...

    The 5 days Huangshan photography journey was my family trip. I was lucky to spend it with a dedicated and competent guide. She was young but capable to arrange everything and allocate the time properly. She also helped me to take care of my children. The diver was punctual and kept the car clean. I’d like to express my gratitude for their hard work! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend TravelChinaGuide to all my friends!
