Tips for Accommodating at Baiyun Hotel

  • The cable car operates during 07:00~16:30 and you need to hike at least 1.5 hour from different cable car stations, so you need to plan your itinerary carefully to avoid hiking at night.
  • In order to protect the eco-environment of Yellow Mountain, Baiyun Hotel does not provide disposable toiletries like tooth paste and brush. Please remember to bring your own toiletries with you.
  • West Sea Grand Canyon is only open to tourists during March to November. During winter time from December to Feburary (next year), it's closed for maintenance. Actually it is also dangerous to visit in the canyon as the stone steps will be very slippery because of snow and ice in winter.
  • Because of great location, the room charge of Baiyun Hotel is a bit higher than other hotels with same level on Yellow Mountain.
