This is a long loop that goes around the western portion of Yellow Mountain. It offers breaktaking scenery, and I highly recommend it. Plan about 3 hours to hike to the bottom, maybe more if it is crowded because the narrow path will have bottlenecks...More

Go in the morning so as to get the best view. Have to be prepared to do some climb. Some parts of the canyon is close due to landslide

I think here is the Best part of Huang Shan but it is hard to reach there. It is far away from the main cable cars, so you need to plan it well.

The most spectacular part of Huang Shan. The path is very steep but not too harsh. It's either all the way up or all the way down. It's avatar scenery in real life.

If you are fairly fit, you should not miss this route. We took the cable car down to the valley. The ride down itself was interesting. And we walked up the mountain again taking this scenic route. It's a very interesting walk (uphill of course!)...More
