Just came back from an 11 day trip in China, and the Yellow Mountains are easily the highlight of the trip. Do not miss it! This national park is not cheap to get to or to go in, but certainly worth it. Here are the...More

Reviews mentioned that the xihai grand canyon is special. It is nice, steep stairs and narrow paths, good scenery but not grand! and definately very noisy. see also my review of the Huangshan scenic area for more info.

This is a long loop that goes around the western portion of Yellow Mountain. It offers breaktaking scenery, and I highly recommend it. Plan about 3 hours to hike to the bottom, maybe more if it is crowded because the narrow path will have bottlenecks...More

Go in the morning so as to get the best view. Have to be prepared to do some climb. Some parts of the canyon is close due to landslide

I would definitely store your large backpack. The shear volume of people in the tour groups makes the walk through the canyon very difficult and at times frustrating. We brought enough water and a picnic lunch in a daypack.
