Huangshan by plane or train from Shanghai

by matjung

Hi,
I would like to spend a few days in and around of Huangshan and I still undecided how to go there.

So far I found only one train connection leaving Shanghai South Railway at 17:49; arrival in Huangshan on 9am.
Is there any faster connection?
E.g. from Shanghai to Hangzhou by train and then by coach or train to Huangshan?
I read that it takes just three hours from Hangzhou to Huangshan by express bus.
Is the express bus stop in Hangzhou near the rail station?
Or is there a coach between Shanghai and Huangshan?

Would there be an express bus stop near Huangshan Scenic Area?
Or would I need to change the buses in Huangshan?

Based on the information I found on the net, China Eastern offer flights between Shanghai and Huangshan, but on these two websites
http://www2.ce-air.com/en_new/index.html
http://www.flychinaeastern.com/home_domestic.htm
I didn't find anything.
Have they discontinued serving Huangshan?
Are there other airlines available?
On shanghai-air.com I found this flight:
FM9265 SHA TXN 14:50 15:55
But I don't want to sacrifice an afternoon to travel from one place to another place.

If you're looking for a direct train route for Shanghai -- Huangshan, there's no faster option.
The Shanghai -- Tunxi bus should take about 5-6 hours though, a bit more if you go all the way to Tangkou.
Alternatively you can take D train for Shanghai South -- Hangzhou (1.5 hours), then a taxi to Hangzhou West long-distance bus station (about half an hour???) and then a long-distance bus to Tunxi (2.5-3 hours).
If I'm not wrong, all of Huangshan's flights are in the evening regardless of destination. In fact the airport is only open for a few hours, during the evening.
It would be helpful if you indicate when you're travelling, as flight schedules are seasonal.

I will be travelling in June.

I am looking for a solution to arrive in Huangshan on Monday morning, 14th June.

How much might a cab between Hangzhou and Huangshan cost?
Is a cab driving faster than the coach?

Re: Huangshan by plane or train from Shanghai

The Shanghai -- Tunxi train DOES arrive in the morning!
If that's too slow for you, then take the Shanghai -- Tunxi bus the night before, and sleep in Tunxi on 13/6 night.
Otherwise, take the earliest D train Shanghai -- Hangzhou South D5523 (0610--0742), then a taxi to Hangzhou West long-distance bus station and catch the Hangzhou West -- Tunxi bus at 0840. You'll probably arrive at Tunxi by 1130, a little faster than the earliest direct bus from Shanghai, but still slower than if you took the overnight Shanghai -- Tunxi train.
I'd expect the taxi for Hangzhou -- Tunxi to cost >1000 RMB, so that's not a good idea.

Travel Tips for Huangshan

Clear one minute, cloudy the next

by SLLiew

When there is rolling clouds, the scenery of Huangshan is enhanced and becomes heavenly. Suddenly the sun shine, then the clouds covered forever.

TIP: So take your pictures fast and early in the morning for when the day proceeds, the clouds may blanket everything.

TIP: Do not spend too much at one spot, there are so many beautiful vistas, that when you get to the other spots later, the clouds have covered everything.

Bring enough clothes for cold weather in autumn

by unice

Bring a day pack if you are on a guided tour because your luggage would be kept in your coach and you are to carry your day pack all the way to your hotel by walking from the cable car station. Sneakers and enough clothes as you should always expect much lower temperature on the mountain. Wear a raincoat instead of carrying an umbrella when there is rain as the wind may be strong and blow away your umbrella

Emerald Valley

by brockton

The Emerald Valley is a beautiful scenic area of bamboo groves not far from Tangkou, at the base of Huangshan. There is also an emerald pool located on the north side of Huanghsan mountain (near Taiping) that is more difficult to get to but also worth seeing. The emerald valley is often overlooked but makes for an excellent hike, especially if the weather keeps you from climbing the mountain.

Huangshan, Anhui Province

by stmlnyc

Huangshan (or Yellow Mountain) in Anhui Province is one of the most popular scenic spots in China. It is known for its unique pine trees, shapes of mountains, and scenery. The highest peak is Lotus Flower Peak at 1,864 meters above sea level followed by Brightness Top Peak at 1,860 meters.

For the hiking enthusiast, Huangshan will surely disappoint. It is designed to appeal to the mass tourist market. You'll likely encounter fellow tourists (almost all Chinese) in suits with dress shoes and high-heel shoes. The 'hiking' is really climbing steep, well-constructed stairs.

However, the scenery is great even if you don't break a sweat getting there.

Note: Some VT posters mentioned how difficult the hiking was. Please keep in mind that certain peaks have steeper climbs and the weather was very accommodating during my stay.

An example of Huangshan's pine trees. You'll see many growing on mountain sides and rocks with little visible soil. Many trees are given colorful names to reflect its unique shapes such as dragon claw pine tree and black tiger pine tree.

Many mountain peaks form distinctive features, much like cloud formations. Mountains, pine trees, and scenery are major draws to Huangshan. However, there are other attractions, such as the waterfalls, and the hot springs in the lower valleys.

The park entrance fee was 85 RMB (low season) and for an extra 1 RMB you can purchase insurance-injury payout is 8,000 while death is 40,000 RMB.
