Getting there & away
Buses from Túnxī (aka Huángshān Shì) take around 70 minutes to reach Huáng Shān Gate from the train station entrance (Y10, departures when full) between 6.30am and 8pm. Minibuses back to Túnxī from Tāngkǒu are plentiful, and can flagged down on the road to Túnxī (Y13).
Tāngkǒu has a number of long-distance bus stations, but the most useful for travellers is the Nanmen long-distance bus station (Nánmén Chángtú qìchē zhàn; 557 2602), south of the main Huáng Shān Gate. Buses run to Héféi (Y64, six hours, regular), Jiǔhuá Shān (Y36, three hours, 6.10am), Yīxiàn (Y13, one hour, twice daily), Nánjīng (Y76, six hours, three daily), Hángzhōu (Y59 to Y80, four hours, five daily) and Wǔhàn (Y154 to Y179, nine hours, twice daily). Many buses depart early in the morning.
