Most of the major hotels in the summit area have similar facilities. Xihai Hotel is pretty good. Yes, heating and hot shower water is available.
Leave your luggage at a hotel or the left luggage facilities at Huangshan train station, and carry the minimum for an overnight stay with you up the mountain.

GUEST88203 Hi,

I heard there are VIP cable car tickets and with those, you do not need to queue too long. Any idea on how and where to get them?

Look on for weather forecast. This weather station is located on the 3rd-highest peak of Huangshan. It's in Chinese but it's not difficult to figure out; or use Google Translate (
Well how would I know what you would consider interesting?
Around Huangshan there're the Hui-style villages of Hongcun ( and Xidi (; further afield and not so touristy are the Hui-style villages of Wuyuan, located across the provincial border in Jiangxi province.
Around Hangzhou you should consider Shaoxing (used to be a water village, home of Lu Xun the father of modern Chinese literature) and Xitang (

Looks like this is a very troublesome place to visit. There are 3 different cable cars, am sure some hotel will be near but you still need to do alot of walking as the scenic stops are not near to the cable car stations. I have given up my plan of going there.

Troublesome? It would be wonderful if everything in the world was served up to you on a silver platter, I suppose.

Hangzhou, not Hongzhou.
Yes, it's not difficult to travel by bus to Huangshan.
Huangshan is worth visiting in various seasons for various aspects, I'd say.
For Hangzhou hotel, what's your budget like?
Might be faster to email me at|ellyse99 -- put "TravelChinaGuide" in the subject line, thanks.
