TravelPod Member ReviewsShilin Hotel Huangshan
Our guide recommended Shilin over Paiyonlou as we are told the rooms are larger and cleaner. Shilin was a comfortable stay on the mountain. The double room was very small so you might consider opting for the twin room which is slightly larger and has a small balcony.
Zero English. Meals were OK but nothing special.

... gave us a nice view back up the mountain. At one point Daniel and I noticed a sign "the best view on Mount Huangshan", this was definitely a lie as we looked into thick trees!

So we eventually (with the help of Brendon speaking Chinese!) worked out that we bought tickets there and went into what looked like a cable car building to get a bus to the starting temple from which you walked.

I laughed so hard when both of us made it all the way through the "I am a C, I am a CH I am a CHRISTIAN!" song! Oh church camp... sigh...
At one very narrow part of the hike there was an option to hike to a very famous tree. This meant a 500 meter diversion but this tree is ...

For lunch that afternoon we made our way over to a fairly new and very nice hotel with stunning views out over the peaks and valley below and sat down for our meal. Our guide had been kind enough to warn us ahead of time that because of the remote nature of the hotels up on the mountain the food (especially at lunch time) was pretty bad and that we shouldn’t expect too much from our lunch that day. Luckily with those lowered ...
... worried when we got back to Hangzhou because our bus driver stopped at one point to call someone and ask for directions but we found our way home. Of course the beginning and end of the ride to and from Hangzhou we sang lots of songs including songs from Wicked and Rent.
After showers and a change of clothes we went to Helen’s for dinner. Our waitress was definitely overwhelmed by our group of 9 and only took orders 3 people at a time. However the food was ...
