About Mt. Huangshan

Of all the notable mountains in China, Mount Huangshan, in the south of Anhui province, is probably the most famous. It is said that you won't want to visit any other mountains after seeing Wuyue(a collective name of five famous mountains) but you won't wish to see even Wuyue after returning from Mt. Huangshan. This saying may give you some idea of the beauty and uniqueness of Mt. Huangshan. Together with the Yellow River, the Yangtze River and the Great Wall, Mt. Huangshan has become one of the great symbols of China.

The mountain is famous for its four wonders: strange pines, absurd stones, sea of clouds and hot springs. Each of the four seasons on Mt. Huangshan has their respective beauty but even this can vary from day to day thanks to variations in the weather, light and shade as clouds pass overhead and even around you at the higher reaches. This endless changing adds an emphasis to the wonder of the landscape and to know the mountain thoroughly, you would need to visit Mt. Huangshan in all the different seasons.

Mt. Huangshan can boast not only of its magnificence but also its abundant resources and great variety of zoological species, for which it has been listed as a World Natural and Cultural Heritage Site.
