Normally travellers take the bullet train from Nanjing to Huangshan Station then switch another bus to go to the mountain itself, because the mountain is actually far outside of Huangshan City.
However there are also direct bus from Nanjing to the Mountain. The ride time is about 4-5hrs. Pay attention that when you buy bus tickets, it goes to Huangshan Scenic Area - Tangkou (黄山风景区汤口) , not just Huangshan (黄山) which is the city centre.
- From South Nanjing Bus Terminal (南京汽车南站) -> Huangshan Scenic Area - Tangkou

- You can reach South terminal with metro, take exit 1 - make sure you don't end up at the South Train station which is near by
