guestvivi Hi, i want to go to Huangshan mt. this Saturday and stay 1 night on Huangshan mt. but I have some question about how should i go there?
1. which choice is better? going from Shanghai to Huangshan by train or by bus?

2.If i go by train, is it clean?

3.if i go by bus, which station should i drop? I search from the internet and found that i have to go to Huangshan scenic area station but what is this station called in Chinese? And is it a right station to take off if i want to go to Yungu Station cable car?

4. from the drop off bus station, is it far from there to Huangshan mt.?

5. Do i need to buy a ticket back from Huangshan to Shanghai in advance?

GUEST5683 1 There are two trains. One leaves at 12:48 and the other departs at 21:10. It takes about 11.5 to 12 hours by train.

There are four buses at Shanghai South Long Distance Bus Station. They all pass by Tunxi Bus Station and finally arrive at Huangshan Tourist Distribution Center.

Schedule: 06:38, 07:58, 09:08, 14:25. Ticket Price: CNY 130(Tunxi Bus Station) and CNY148 (Huangshan Tourist Distribution Center). Duration: 6.5 hours.

Then you can make your decision.

2. It should be clean on both trains because the starting station of both trains is from Shanghai Railway Station.

3 It will bring you up to the tourist distribution center in Huangshan Scenic Area (黄山风景区旅游集散中心). There you can take the special line to Yungu Cable Car Station. It costs about CNY 13 and takes about 20 minutes.

4 Please refer to the question 3.
5 If you come there during the peak season, I do suggest you buy your return ticket in advance.

At least two days on Yellow Mountain. You may stay at West Sea Hotel on the Yellow Mountain. If you decide to fly from Shanghai to Huangshan, you may choose a hotel near the airport.

GUESTRUTGER ... In February 2014 we took the night train (11 hours) from Shanghai to Huangshan, which was clean and comfortable! We booked a soft sleeper ticket via our hostel in Shanghai.

We spend 1 day climbing the mountain, slept a night at the summit, and the second day we walked a bit around the top and went down. Due the beautiful snow, a lot of stairs were closed, so two days were enough in our case. Otherwise you can probably spend one more day at the top.

1. Take night train to Huangshan train station (Huangshan: 黄山)
2. Take a bus from Huangshan to Tangkou village (Tangkou: 汤口镇)
3. Walk to the tourist bus station, take a small bus to the entrance of Huangshan national park.
