Traveling Tips:

  • Tunxi Old Street is prosperous on 06:00-23:00pm daily but it would be closed earlier at around 09:30pm in winter time.
  • Hongcun Village is one of the first batch villages open to tourists in Huangshan Area, now it's quite commercialized but not affect its beauty. Bishan Village and Nanping Village are still rustic.
  • We suggest you to depart from hotel a bit late at around 08:30am then you catch up with the waiting line of gondola at around 10:00am in order to avoid the peak time of domestic travellers.
  • Xihai is a 5 star hotel on top of Mt Huangshan, it has two wings, one is north (4*) and the other is south wing (5*). And all the clients would be checked in together on south wing (5* building). There is around US$20/per person price difference for upgrading the room into 5* south wing if you need.
  • Our guide would probably adjust the time to go up Mt Huangshan according to your traveling time in order to avoid the peak mountain entering hours, but we would keep the same visiting content just adjust the visiting order.
