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.

    Went on a 1 day guided tour. This was during second half of Golden Week when weather deteriorated. On the plus side, no crowds. But also no views. Generally speaking, I would try to avoid any holidays or weekends for walking to the summit as some stairs are narrow, only allow one way traffic and can get pretty crowded. Despite limited to no views, a must do when in China and in Anhui province, a sacred mountain with otherwise great views and also some interesting birds to see.

    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.

    If you are visiting China, you will surely see The Great Wall and perhaps the Terracotta Warriors, but Huangshan should be on your China bucket list. There are so many beautiful sights and wonders here. It is crowded but not like the other places I mentioned. Your China trip would feel empty if you don’t visit Huangshan and this peak is very accessible to people with even limited physical abilities.

    The highest peak in Huangshan at 1846 m asl is worth climbing. The scenery on the way up is striking but most times are spent concentrating on the effort of the climb. It is steep, punishing. But the steps are well made and ropes are available to ensure a safe climb. At the top it is a crowded place, made worse by the climbers taking a long time with their selfies. It is not suitable for people with handicaps, afraid of heights.

    Is this a must? To me it is. - Prefer an early arrival on days a lot of people are up. Everyone likes to do a photo of his own!

    I should've listened to the first review. I told my guide to take us to this peak. He warned it is not as nice as the other peaks. He said he would show it to me from afar and if I still wanted to visit it, he would certainly take us. He was of course right and it is just another peak and not worth the effort. It is nice but just with so many grand peaks at Huangshan, it's not a memorable one.
