February is very cold, with an average temperature of –1.3 °C (29.7 °F). The maximum and minimum temperatures are 8 °C (43 °F) and –4 °C (25 °F). The average precipitation reaches 111.9 mm, so you may encounter a lot of snowy weather. Take an umbrella when climbing the mountain.
Be sure to take clothing that can keep you warm and protect you from the cold weather at the top of the mountain, such as a cotton dress with an overcoat. Also wear hiking shoes and thick socks to stay warm and avoid slipping on the way.
In February, you can enjoy the traditional Chinese Spring Festival and the Lantern Festival, and appreciate local dancing and singing. At the same time, also experience various interesting traditions of China's New Year. Don't forget the beautiful snow-covered mountain, and be aware that since a great many tourists visit this month, tourist sites may be crowded. See our Huangshan Tours.

How is the temperature in Huangshan on Feb.2012?Is it suitable to visit.
Regarding your question about the temperature in Huangshan (the Yellow Mountain) in February, the average high temperature is about 9℃ (48℉) at that time, the average precipitation is about 5mm in February. For my own experience, it is too cold to visit there in February; it is freezing up on the mountain. However, if you would like to see the spectacular snowscapes, they can be seen every where at that time. Most people won’t visit Huangshan until May, so it is the low season, the mountainside is much less crowded and it is much cheaper to travel. If you wish to go there in February, please prepare warm winter clothes, including fleece or down.
