Spring Summer Autumn Winter
The main thing to do on Yellow Mountain is to walk and photo the spectacular views. It is said that over 60,000 steps throughout the trails which are all well made. There are cable cars leading to the mountain top from north, east and west of the mountain. Thus make it an ideal hiking place for hikers at all levels. We design a day hiking with taking cable car up and down to cover the regular route from East to West, West to East or short hikes around east cable car station (Yungu Station).
Guide and driver will pick you up at hotel lobby early in the morning and drive 90km to Yellow Mountain Scenic Area. Take cable car at Yungu Station up to top of the east mountain. Start the hiking anti-clockwise via Black Tiger Pine, Dawn Pavilion, Cloud-dispelling Pavilion, Flying-over Rock and Bright Top to Yuping Station. It requires 6 hours also to complete the walk via passes and taking photos. Walking in this way, you can see the most beautiful part in the morning hours when you are energetic. But if you have time to extend to two days itinerary, we will take you going the different direction as hotels all nearer to Yungu Station.
If time and energy permit, a side hiking trail down to the West Sea Canyon is the most remarkable one that requires about 9 hours to complete. That can be included in a two days mountain hiking trip.
Prepare sunglasses and raincoat as weather changes quickly on mountain. Wear hiking boots if possible. Most of the passes are paved by or carved from rocks.
When tour ends, drive back to hotel in Huangshan (Tunxi) city or see you off at bus or train station.
