|Good grief, just because you don't go by Taiping cable car yourself, doesn't mean it's "not the right way"!|
And, the shortest way might not always be the "best" way, or the way that others want!

|Yes, possible if you take the earliest bus to Tangkou or the earliest buses to Tunxi (and then connect to another bus going to Tangkou), at 0628 and 0728 from Shanghai long-distance bus station respectively.|
Otherwise, I'd take the overnight train which would artive at 0905.
Let me know ASAP if you'd like to buy the tickets in advance. I could get them delivered to where you're staying.

|Go directly to Taiping from Tunxi, don't bother going via Tangkou! I think it's about 20 RMB/pax for bus Tunxi -- Taiping.|
There's no bus from Tangkou to Taiping cable car.

|I would prefer to take a bus for Shanghai -- Tunxi from Shanghai South long-distance bus station. At Tunxi, change to a bus going to Taiping (north foot) or Tangkou (south foot) of the mountain.|

|Hangzhou -- Tunxi buses leave from Hangzhou West long-distance bus station.at 0650, 0745, 0840, 0940, 1015,1055, 1135, 1310, 1415, 1555, 1630 and 1820. These take about 2.5-3 hours.|
From Tunxi you could take buses to Tangkou (south foot) or Taiping (north foot) of Huangshan. Tangkou is about half an hour nearer but more popular and crowded. I prefer going by Taiping, great views from Taiping cable car.
West Sea Canyon should be open by 27/3.
Going down, I usually recommend the Western Steps -- do Heavenly Capital Peak if your fitness and time allows.
There're buses from Tangkou and Tunxi which would go to Hongcun. Alternatively if you're travelling with friends/family, you could consider hiring a vehicle and driver for the day.
The Tunxi -- Shanghai bus takes about 5-6 hours, NOT 10 hours. The overnight train does take about 12.5-14.5 hours. Same in the opposite direction.
