There is about 233 mm of rain, and rain falls on 18 days of the month.

The average nightly low temperature is 5 °C (41 °F), and the average daily high temperature is 11 °C (52 °F). When it is sunny, the UV index is very high. The average humidity is 79%. Stay abreast of the local weather forecast>>

Clothing: Rain gear and waterproof shoes with good traction are important. A warm jacket and layers of clothing will enable you adopt to changing conditions.

Things to Do around Huangshan in April

Expect crowds when the weather is good. A hike to the summit of China's famous, legendary mountains is moderately strenuous. It takes fit hikers two or three hours.

To avoid the stair climb, you can ride a cable car to the 1,400m+ (5,000 feet) hotel area.

See Flower Seas and an Ancient Village

Wuyuan Village: In April, yellow seas of rape flowers nestle this picturesque well-preserved village that is about 1½ hours' drive (90 km / 56 mi) southwest of Huangshan.
