Huang Shan is absolutely unforgettable, but be prepared for the hordes of tours with guides whose commentary is amplified and when they are not talking, they play music!! The Chinese don't seem to appreciate silence. Go on a weekday, walk the canyon where you will...More

One of my best day hiking spot. Stayed at Beihai hotel for 2 nights. Close to Sunset/sunrise access points. Easy to navigate on hiking routes as they were clearly labelled in Chinese and English. Not many spoke English, had to whip out Google Translate. One...More

There is a lot of walking up and down the stairs. Make sure that you can handle it. Older folks may have a problem. Check the weather and bring rain gears. We were lucky. It was sunny, but the following day is raining. If you...More

These are the steep, rocky mountains you see in so much of traditional Chinese art. It's impressive and beautiful. The tram ride is a treat. Seeing the sunrise is a big group event among the Chinese, like going to see the sunset in Key West...More

The amount of tourists is unbelievable, and they as groups are not gracious by any means. This was also mid-week, non-holiday - just cannot imagine what it would be like otherwise (more unbearable LOL). We thought it was funny, coming from Switzerland, we were prepared...More

A lot of peculiarly-shaped pines and rocks with famous scenic spots. Opportunities to discover wonderful scenes when clouds are disappearing. Of course views are weather-dependent and you can see nothing at all if raining or high clouds but weather also changes in 1 second. Nice...More

Because there are so many hiking paths and scenic views up on the summit, it is best to stay at least one night up there, maybe two, which also gives you a chance at a remarkable sunrise as well. If you don't stay the night... More

Nature Hsu is a very good guide.. I used him, and recommend. Using a guide makes the experience more smooth and enjoyable, especially with getting tickets and transfers in and out of the area.
