Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Our lovely guide Echo took us late afternoon to this old street. Lots of interesting shops and restaurants but quite crowded. Worth a look though.

    There are a lot of nice architectures and old buildings in the old village. It could be managed better to avoid the merchants ruining the nature of this ancient village. The moon lake was the place that Li An’s famous movie “crouching tiger, hidden dragon” took several famous shoots. Overall, it’s a nice walking tour and quite relaxed.

    Did not do enough homework to realize how challenge and somewhat dangerous this hiking is. It is an ultimate hiking especially with strong wind. Tian Du Feng is due to close for five years after Dec. 1. Took us almost 2 hours to complete the hiking. The views from the top of mountain is second to none. Ten of 16 us completed the challenge. Three of us gave up right before reaching the top around the turning because it was very strong wind. In addition to the gorgeous views, we were so lucky to see the “Buddha light”. My friend who had been Huangshan 39 times, only saw it once (twice including this trip. The tour guide only saw twice in his 20 some years professional career. It’s a huge challenge and definitely worth hiking to to top. However, don’t push yourself. After all, safety is the #1 priority.

    Chengkan village has well preserved residential architecture from Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.). Chengkan village is also widely known as Bagua Village (八卦) relating to Taiji philosophy that focuses on two aspects – Yin and Yang. This can be seen in a lot of the old residential houses. It is highly recommended that you hire a guide. If you can understand Chinese, then local guides can be hired at village entrance for a small fee of rmb50 (the guide will take you through the village and explain a lot of Fengshui design of the buildings to you. The tour would take around 1 hour and if you want to spend longer than it is another rmb50). The local village has very limited English speaking guide. While you can tour the village yourself, a lot of cultural knowledge is lost without someone explaining. While this is not as tourist or famous as Hongcun and Xidi, it is definitely worth a visit.

    It is a 10 mins hike from Yuping cable car station. This place is crowded with tour groups. There are few food and snacks stalls. A good place for stop over and toilet break. Many tourists are taking selfies and personal photos of the iconic Greeting Pine, which can be seen from the platform down a few steps. Personally, this Greeting Pine is nothing spectacular as pine trees are everywhere. I think the pine trees at Refreshing Terrace and Black Tiger Pine are much more imposing.

    After the Xihei Grand Canyon awesome scenery exploration, we checked in the White Cloud Hotel. Took a shower, had a good
    Lunch and started another natural beauty exploration heading to Buxian Bridge. How lucky we were, the overnight raining built up sufficient moisture to let the Mother Nature played the great symphony to have the mist, the fog, the cloud ocean flowing around the awesome mountain peaks. OMG, this morning’s Grand Canyon already shocked me, and now another shock with different kind of natural beauty. Actually, the pictures can only tell very little of this natural beauty. You have to come by yourself with your owns to see such a gorgeous place like an awesome photo after another.

    This is our second visit and we’re content that we stopped again. This place is just so peaceful and relaxing and that is what you’ll need after visiting some of the touristy spots in Huangshan. There is not much to do, souvenirs to buy but what it has is a nice place to take a relaxing stroll in nature.

    Well preserved Tang village with a small river running through it. It’s not as popular as some other ancient villages in the vicinity so it’s quite peaceful and you almost feel like one of the active residents there. Worth a visit if crowds are not your thing.

    It is a very unique and lovely place to visit. If there is fog or clouds it looks like in a fairy tale.

    visited on a rainy day. the falls were spectacular following a few days of heavy rain. from park entrance, to reach the highest accessible point of the falls requires a 30 - 40min walk including some steep stairs. the entrance ticket costs RMB 85, free entry for senior citizens (above 65 yrs I think...). To reach the park, travel time from Tangkou took about 15mins by car.

    It’s a very obvious palm like peak, near Beihai Hotel. After the raining, mist and fog came and went to make the scene changeable frequently (in seconds) and pretty. There are few spots can view it with different angles. It’s near the entrance, so it tends to get a lot of attention with a lot of tourists.

    When visiting a city/country, I want to see it all. We went here thinking t would be an amazing place to tour and it was ok but I wish we wouldn't have spent the time trying to get here while you can see almost the same thing in Huangshan and you're already there. If it is your first stop in Huangshan it might be decent but not after touring some other locations. I might have just been spoiled with the beauty of Huangshan so I expected more.

    Yuping has some good views and the walk, but is not as stunningly scenic as Xihai grand canyon or Shixin peak.
