How to Spend 1 Day in Huangshan

How to Spend 1 Day in Huangshan

With just one day in Huangshan, spend it on Mount Huangshan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the highlight of any trip to the area. Here’s how to make the most of one day in Huangshan and see the top attractions on the mountain.

 

Morning: Cable Cars and Scenic Vistas

Get an early start from your Huangshan-area hotel and opt for a guided tour to make the most of your day and minimize transport times. With just one day, there’s not enough time to hike up or down, since even the shortest approach takes two to three hours each way. Take advantage of the cable cars, which typically start running before 7am. For independent travel, take a shuttle bus to the Yungu cable car, and then take the cable car up and hike to sights such as Beginning-to-Believe Peak, and its many ancient pine trees, followed by Brush Pen Peak.

 

Afternoon: The Wonders of Mount Huangshan

Refuel with lunch at one of the hotels on the mountain. Afterwards, hike up to Bright Peak, the second highest peak on the mountain, before continuing on to highlights such as Flying-Over-Rock and Cloud-Dispelling Pavilion, one of the best places to view three of the four “wonders” of Mount Huangshan: the jagged and odd-shaped granite rocks, the windswept pine trees, and the sea of clouds. It also offers a view down into the stunning Xihai Grand Canyon. Other popular options include Black Tiger Pine, Lion Peak, and Fascinating Pavilion. Then take the cable car back down.

 

Evening: Hot Springs and Ancient Streets

Stop at one of the on-mountain hot springs, the last “wonders” of Mount Huangshan—located at the lower front slopes of the Mount Huangshan Scenic Area. Enjoy a therapeutic soak while admiring the scenic views. Travel back to Huangshan city and head to Tunxi Old Street. Explore the historic area, with its flagstone streets and traditional Chinese buildings dating to the Ming and Qing dynasties. Admire the architecture, sample some tea, shop for local products and souvenirs, or grab dinner to wrap up a full day.
