Huangshan Weather in August

Weather: August is the second hottest month in the year. The average nightly low temperature is 15 °C (59 °F), and the average daily high temperature is 20 °C (68 °F), though it is an average of 6 °C colder 1,000m up.

August has an average precipitation of 305 mm that falls on 18 days of the month. When it is sunny, the UV index is extreme.

The high peaks block off the warm moist air, which meets cold air higher up and produces the 'seas of clouds' and rain.

The mild temperature is pleasant for hiking and touring, but expect some rain and view-obstructing fog. The high humidity of 91% makes you feel warmer on many days when it is sunny. Stay abreast of the Yellow Mountains weather forecast>>

Clothing: Take rain gear and wear waterproof shoes with good traction. On some days, you could wear shorts and T-shirts, but we suggest taking light layers to adapt to changing conditions. Thick clothes like jeans are not advised due to the rain. A sunhat will protect your face if it is sunny.

Things to Do in Huangshan in August

Hike in the Yellow Mountains

Hiking: The mountain is a cool place to escape the sweltering summer heat. There are big crowds when the weather is good. Fit hikers could climb up to the top of one of the three main peaks in about four hours. The climb is moderately strenuous for the fit. Check out our 4-Day Hiking Tour Package

...Enjoy a Scenic Cable Car Ride

To avoid inclement weather or the stair climb, you could take one of the three enclosed cable cars to the 1,400m+ (5,000 feet) hotel area.

Dine, Shop and Sightsee at Xidi Village

Xidi Village is an old clan village that is listed as a World Heritage. It has well preserved Ming Dynasty era courtyard gardens and houses. It is more authentic and less touristy than nearby artists' favorite Hongcun.

Schools and universities are out for summer vacation in August, so there is a flood of young hikers eager to climb the peaks. The main paths are crowded with hikers. To avoid the biggest crowds, don't go on Friday or Saturday.

Let us make your hotel reservations and arrangements in advance. Yellow Mountains flights and hotel rooms are more expensive than in low season, and train tickets might be difficult to obtain.
