Huangshan on 9/10th June. Help with hotels & trails.

Hi,

I'm planning to travel solo to Huangshan. I plan to reach on 8th by bus. Then I want to take the cable to Beihai Hotel next morning.

1. Are there direct buses from Shanghai to Tangkou? Or will I have to transfer? Also could you recommend some hostel to stay in Tangkou? Are the hostels near the cable?

2. I want to take the cable to Beihai Hotel. Which cable should I take? Would they know the english names?

3. Also are directions clear enough to know which route to take after the cable? Or otherwise. I'm interested in the sunset and the fairy stairs. Will the staff be able to guide me well?

Thanks :)

There are no hotels in Tangkou near the cable car, you need to take a relatively short ride.

There will be no English there and no staff to help you in any case. The signage is reasonably clear.

For English language information on Huangshan trails, google the internet and print out maps and any other useful information you can find. While there is dual language signage on the mountain, you're on your own as to how you want to handle the hiking. Expect zero help from Beihai Hotel or any other staff up there. You need to take as little as possible up the mountain with you--you can leave your excess luggage in a Tangkou hotel or at Left luggage at the Tangkou bus station. It's just impossible to hike all the stairs that you have to at Huangshan with more than a tiny daypack.

To get to the Beihai Hotel, the Yungu (Cloud Valley) cable car probably leaves you with the shortest hike from upper station to hotel.
