Steep steps? Safety?

by KoolinUSA

Wondering how safe to hike these beautiful trails. Traveling w/spouse & with an energetic 7 yr old in June, 2 days/1 night on summit, what & where should we avoid, bring, carry, bug situation, hiking stick, rain ponchos? 40's & not v. atheletic but healthy, but worry some hikes are too strenuous for family. Any advice is good, thanks.

I took the trams up and down and only spent one day. After doing that, I recommend doing what you are doing by spending one night.

Most of the trails are not that difficult but there are many of them. Some of the trails are somewhat difficult. I did not take them because of lack of time. Sorry I don't remember these areas but you can ask at your hotel.

It can get crowded on the trails but it is somewhat easy go get away from the crowds. Most of crowds are in tour groups and the tour guides keeps them together and tell them not to leave the group. This was May last year after the May holiday.

My prize route is to go up via Taiping cable car, hike West Sea Canyon (no tour groups here!); sunrise the next morning then go down via Western Steps.
Bring rain ponchos; do NOT use umbrellas for any circumstances.
None of us used hiking sticks, but you would find them helpful.
Bring the absolute minimum that you need up the mountain -- you'll thank yourself for that when you're huffing and puffing away.

Travel Tips for Huangshan

Chained Love

by aukjejetty

Chain your love, and throw away the key so that it is locked forever, that is what a lot of couples do here. They buy the lock from streetvendors. On "Freecloud"s Huangshan page I read her comment on this, you should read it too, if this lock thing looks like a thing you would do.

If you decide to buy a lock anyway, don't throw away the key over the fence, you'll litter the place.

Well, now you have a closer...

by FreeCloud

Well, now you have a closer look of the 'easier' path you need to go. Again, coming down could be a real problem for those tall people. As first the steps are not deep enough for your long feet to have a firm step on those could be slipery steps; secondly, the railing/cables you need to hold are set so low, that you even have to bend over to reach them. Sometimes, there is nothing you can hold but grabing some little concave 'kinks' carved ont the rocks along the path. In that position, you are almost about to roll over down to the valley. We saw many people walking down backwards. If you are afraid of height, do not look down! As I said before, this path is easier than the new path on the other side of the peak, with some of its steepest parts of 85 degrees! We took the same easy path up and down. You would have to pay $1+ 'admission fee' to start your hike to the peak (even though you have already paid about $9 for the admission at the park entance, about another $9 for the one-way cable ride etc). Don't even think that you would not need any cash hiking in the moutain area, yes you do indeed, you need to pay a toll to get onto any major peak there.

Huangshan - Yellow Mountain

by SLLiew



The famous scrolls of Chinese black and white paintings of high mountains, rocks, trees and sea of clouds come alive in Huangshan Mountains in Anhwei Province.

This is a must visit place for those who love nature and Chinese art, literature and history. Places, views are named after important Chinese events and legends.

A local guide is a must. A porter if you have an excess luggage.

Weather is an unpredictable factor of mother nature and so let it be part of your Huangshan experience - rain or shine, snow or sleet, windy or cloudy or misty, hot or cold. When I was there, I climbed in the rain, shrouded in the mist and greeted by sunshine the next morning and enveloped by the noon clouds.

Huangshan - I will not forget you.



Huangshan scenery is depicted on the Chinese Five Yuan bill.

It is a view of the famous "Welcoming Pine Tree" of Huangshan.



A pine tree growing on a craggy rock despite the storm.

Symbolizes the indomitable strong spirit of the Chinese people against all the hardship and suffering to survive and thrive over the milleniums.

Mysterious Huangshan

by aukjejetty

"Inspiration for Poets and Painters"

Huangshan (Yellow mountain) in Anhui province is something I can highly recommend. You have to climb up wat seem like thousands of steps. But the climb is so rewarding! On top op of this mountain you see what poets and painters were inspired by for centuries.

"'Huangshan City'"

The mountain is 50km (31 miles) northwest of Tunxi. The mountains are so beautiful and famous that the city of Tunxi is often better known as ‘Huangshan City’. The diverse topography, includes bamboo forests, cascading waterfalls, clear lakes, hot springs, pine trees and quaint rock formations. It is often said that one only needs to visit Huangshan to get a taste of all the grand mountains in China.

"Lianhua Feng"

Huangshan is famous for its spectacular rocky peaks, oddly shaped pines, crystal-clear mountain springs and sea of clouds with the highest peak - Lotus Flower Peak (Lianhua Feng) at 1864m.

The 72 peaks range have been designated as a national park and declared a World Natural and Cultural Heritage area by UNESCO. The mountains cover an area of 154 sq km.

Even today, many Chinese want to conquer this mountain, so the mountain paths are often busy with hikers. For the less energetic, there are also 3 cable cars which transport you to the peaks in comfort.

"Poem by Li Bay"

Thousands of feet high towers the Yellow Mountain
With its thirty-two magnificent peaks,
Blooming like golden lotus flowers.
Amidst red crags and rock columns.
Once I was on its lofty summit,
Admiring Tianmu Pine below.
The place is still traceable where the immortal
Before ascending to heaven made elixir out of jade.
Now you embark on your journey there alone
Another Wen Boxue I happened to meet
Who've been to Five Mountains for the beauty of nature,
Leaving behind countless ranges of hills.
Homeward you go back to White Goose Ridge,
Back to drink from your Elixir Well.
If by chance I pay you a visit,
I expect to be met by your light carriage.
Eastwards from Lingyang you bend your steps,
And pick your way through fragrant bushes,
Many a stream and many a ford,
Peaks upon peaks shutting out the sky
That's where I'll call on you some other day
Across a bridge that spans cliffs like a rainbow.
