The people who have visited Huangshan will tell you a fact, that is the best scenic of Huangshan Mountain in the peak zone, especially the days in mist.  It is true. And next let me tell you some other facts about when to visit the mountain.

The Low Season (Dec 1 – Feb 28): The weather during the time is colder, less tourist. RMB150 for the entrance tickets, RMB65 for the cable car cost; at the same time, the hotel prices also falls. It is the perfect time to visit the magical snowscape of Huangshan with the lowest cost throughout the year.

The Shoulder Season (Mar 1 – Dec 30): You’d better to avoid the weekend during the time. A lot of people in China will choose weekend to make a short tour. And the hotel at Huangshan will be more expensive than usual.
