|Shanghai to Huangshan on a weekend|

|No more Shanghai -- Huangshan trains leaving in the night. The "overnight" train now leaves at 5+ pm and takes 15 hours. Not recommendable for your situation.|

|2 full days are generally enough for an average trip to Huangshan.|
Train and bus for which route? Shanghai -- Huangshan? The train takes about 15 hours, bus takes about 6 hours to Huangshan city (aka Tunxi).
"Cheap" is relative. What do you have in mind?

|What time can you leave Hangzhou or Shanghai on Friday, and what time do you need to arrive back in Shanghai on Sunday?|
I would suggest staying at least 1 night (most probably Saturday night) on Huangshan, although it's expensive.
It would be more convenient if you reply me directly on email -- yahoo.com|ellyse99 and put "TravelChinaGuide" in the subject line, thanks.

|If you're travelling with elderly people who might have problems walking or climbing stairs for a long time, then it might be best to go up via Taiping cable car and stay at Paiyunlou Hotel. The sunrise viewing point closest to the hotel should be Purple Cloud Peak.|
"Best" is subjective. Currently the "best" option is perhaps bus, about 6 hours from Shanghai.

|Hello, I'm new here.|
We'll get to Huangshan from Shanghai at the end of August. For the route I've considered taking the Taiping cable car in the late afternoon and stay on top overnight and hike the west path down. Good idea?
Now if we go to Taiping from Shanghai by bus (and taxi probably), we still pass through Tunxi or is there a straighter route somewhere north? What about the waiting queues at the Taiping cable car station? I think the last ride up is at 4:30pm?
And what hotels would you suggest up there? Let's say in the lower midrange price area?

|Sounds ok to me, though personally I think it's a pity to miss the West Sea Canyon. I presume your mention of "west path" would mean the Western Steps.|
Yes, you'll still need to go via Tunxi.
Are you going on a weekday or weekend? If you're going on a weekday I think there would be close to no one taking the Taiping cable car.
All the hotels up there are all about the same price, honestly. I usually book either Paiyunlou Hotel or Baiyun Hotel.
