Urgent - Help on Huangshan summit reservations

I plan to visit Huangshan summit for an overnight trip. I reach 13th morning via overnight train from Shanghai and depart on 14th night via overnight train to Suzhou. I am unable to find any hotels in the summit area. If anybody has an english map of the trails and the Huangshan mountain area, I can settle for the next closest hotel to the summit. My wife has a back problem and hence the need to not do the entire hike in one day.

Thanks,

Deepak.

You mean 13th of June!

My suggestion is going up by Yungu Telpher at Yungu Temple Station, when you reach the top (White Goose Ridge Station), the Beihai Hotel is within 15 miunutes walk from the station, drop off your luggage before starting the hike.

According to ctrip.com, rooms are still available at Beihai at RMB990 per night!

Hi, Thanks. I was able to get a room at the Yungu Hotel in the Cloud Valley Scenic Area. I am not sure how far the mountain summit is from this hotel. Can you provide guidance. I plan to go up the eastern side and reach the hotel. Go to the summit for sunset and then come back to the hotel.

Get to the summit again for sunrise. Get breakfast at a summit hotel and then hike down the wester side.

All of the above in case I am unable to get a summit hotel in the next few days.

Does the above plan make sense. Please give your feedback.

Deepak.

Yungu Hotel is not a summit hotel, it is located nearby Yungu Temple station, i.e. bottom of Yungu Telpher.

So if you want to hike around the summit area on day 1, you have to go up and down by cable car, then up again the next day (not sure if the cable car start early enough for sunrise), not really sure if you want to do so.

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I really want to stay at the summit. But 900 RMB is way out of my budget. Someone mentioned that there are other summit hotels that do not have online reservations. Are you aware of any? Can you please assist.

There are dorm accommodation at Paiyun Hotel at RMB210 per person, all share facilities though.

I booked with them last year and according to their website, they are the ground operator of ctrip.com, I guess the service is reliable.

There is a service hot-line 0559-2511818 but I'm sure if they have English speaking staff. You can try to contact them by email.

Wish you good luck.

Too bad I didn't see this in time. Actually, there're lots more hotels in the summit area which aren't represented online, or at least not well-known, and not in English. I usually book Baiyun Hotel or Guangmingding Shanzhuang.

It's pretty normal for private rooms in any summit hotel to cost at least 700 RMB on weekdays, going up to 900 RMB on weekends and even >1000 RMB during the major holidays. And that's with booking ahead, not just by turning up and hoping for a space. You could end up paying 200 RMB just to sleep on a thin mattress pad in the hotel corridor or lobby -- trust me I've seen that happen.
