I hope to go in 2nd or 3rd week of Dec. Is it true the cable cars will not be working if the winds are too strong in winter months? What is the chance of the cable cars not allowed to move in the period that I am visiting?

Hi Huang, it is not possible to arrange a 1-day trip to Huangshan from Shanghai. It needs 5-6hr for a one way drive.

Dear Anne MINART, There is no direct bus from Hangzhou to Hongcun. You need to take a bus to Tunxi, then change other bus to Hongcun. From Hangzhou west bus station(杭州汽车西站)to Tunxi, the bus is available from 7:00am to 16:30pm, setting off every one hour. It costs about CNY80/US$13 per person and it takes about 2.5 hours. From Tunxin to Hongcun, there is a bus every one hour from 7:00am to 16:00pm. It takes about 1.5 hours and it costs about CNY18/US$3 per person. I hope this information is useful for you.

GILI, You are traveling during our National Holiday (Oct.1-7), so please be prepared to meet thousands of Chinese people and the increase for everything (van rental, hotel, restaurants etc.). I can offer the private van transfer from Hangzhou city to Tangkou town at Huangshan (3.5 hours drive). A 7-seat van will cost CNY1500/USD240. Or you consider taking the bus journey (it leaves Hangzhou West Bus Station to Tangkou, schedules are 08:00, 09:20, 10:30, 12:40 and 14:10, CNY100/USD16 per person duration of 3.5 hours). I can offer the Guide assistance buying the entrance tickets or cable car. The tour guide will be sent from Huangshan city, the cost is CNY500/USD78 per day. Actually it is just 10 minutes drive from Tangkou town to Yellow Mountain scenic area, you could go and pay in cash for these service or you could ask help from hotel. Here i attached a link for a 3-day essence Huangshan tour for your reference. http://www.chinahighlights.com/tour/huangshantour/hs-1/. If your next destination after Yellow Mountain is Shanghai, you could take the flight or overnight train journey from Huangshan city directly, it is not necessary to transfer to Hangzhou again, Please confirm and double check all of your reservation during National Holiday!

Hi Zuzu, It takes about 6-7 hours from Huangshan Tangkou to Shanghai Pudong Airport. If there is not delay on the road, you will arrive at the airport at about 19:00-20:00, which is still enough time for you to catch the 23:00 departing flight.

Dear sir, I plan to pay huangshan a visit in December between 15 to 30th. Can you advise if the area will experience much rainfall? And will the mountains be slippery and potentially dangerous to ascend? Appreciate your advice.

Whitney Liao (Sep. 9, 2012) replied:
Hi Marcus,  there won't be much rainfall in December, but will be snowfall. It is very cold in Huangshan at that time, with an average temperature of –0.1°C (30°F). Even the high temperature is only 5°C (41°F). The mountains could be slippery when the snow melts, but not  potentially dangerous to ascend. Please prepare anti-slip shoes and warm clothes.

Coco Yang (Aug. 30, 2012) replied:
Hi Kylie, Huangshan is about 3 hours drive away from Hangzhou, so it maybe tight to have one day from and back to Hangzhou. One night stay in Huangshan is suggested. If you need, I would like to arrange a Huangshan tour for you from Hangzhou. When you want to take the tour? How many people are there in the group?
