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.

... in two things: 1) it strengthened my conviction that this is dehumanizing, this is why the communist revolution started. 2) I had to pay the porter 10 yuan, because of the 'favor' he did me! Those rascals... Some parts of the stairs were extremely busy. Complete traffic jams, especially where they get very narrow. This reminds me that my Chinese seems to be improving.

At the bottom we all caught up and then split again with Brendon and Toon heading to see the town and the rest of us heading for the World Famous Huangshan Hot Springs. These were truly fantastic, I cannot stress this enough! It could be due to all ...
... detour. We took many pictures along the way even if what little we could see at the mountain doesn't really show. The walk was still really good fun though as we all wandered together, stopping for snacks and to tie our makeshift rain covers back onto our backpacks! The walkways were interesting, sometimes along (probably) cliff edges, and other times through very narrow rock cracks. I think everyone was happy to arrive at the hotel though and it was very nice - so it should be for ...
... these hot-springs, but were pleasantly surprised by them on arrival. A lovley landscaped area with a whole heap of different pools with very soothing hot spring water. The most interesting one had a layer of what appeared to be terracotta-type balls on the bottom which we kind of sunk into and got a tickle/massage in the process. Very nice! Amazingly, the kids were all out, dressed and ready to go at the required time. We set off for our last shuttle bus ride back to our ...
