Huangshan Mountain (Yellow Mountain)

Of all the notable mountains in China, the Huangshan Mountain, aka Yellow Mountain, is probably the most famous and can be found in the south of Anhui Province. It is famed for its stunning and peculiar natural sceneries composed of four wonders, namely unique guest-greeting pines, absurd stones, sea of clouds and amazing hot springs, as well as high peaks, strange pines and glacial landforms. 

The fairyland-like Huangshan national park occupying an area of 160.6 square kilometers (39,700 acres) boasts not only attractive scenery but also abundant resources and a great variety of zoological species, for which it has been listed as a World Natural and Cultural Heritage Site. 

In different seasons around a year the mountain has various and unique beauty, such as the wild spring flowers, specular summer waterfalls, colorful autumn leaves and white winter rime.

Highlights in Huangshan

Six Scenic Areas
Huangshan scenic area mainly consists of six particular areas. Inside the Jade Screen, you can catch sight of lofty mountains, precipitous slopes and antiquated stone carvings. The distinguished Guest-Greeting Pine can be found here, too. From North Sea to Pine Valley, not only the jungle-like steep mountains, but also the lush and verdant pines and cypresses would leave you with a deep impression. The gurgling spring water and imposing waterfalls in Hot Springs and White Cloud will feast your eyes on their distinct beauty and magnificence. With quiet environment and relatively flat paths, the secluded Cloud Valley is suitable for an easier Huangshan hiking.

Four Wonders
The famed four wonders are 4 unique views belonging to Mount Huangshan, namely Strange Pines, Absurd Stones, Sea of Clouds and Hot springs respectively.

There are hundreds of rare pine trees in Huangshan. As one of the landmarks of Huangshan, the most famous Guest-Greeting Pine stretches out for about 10 meters (33 feet) from the sheer cliffs, like an usher in a respectful greeting gesture.

The absurd stones can be seen almost on every peak of Huangshan Mountain. From different viewing angles, the stones look like human beings, animals or other objects. Accordingly, they are given different vivid names such as Monkey Stone and Flying over Stone.

Sea of Clouds is known for its beauty, scarcity, marvelousness, and flexibility. You would be lucky to see this rarely seen scenery as it only occurs around 50 days in a year. The whole mountain is as pretty as a huge ink-wash painting when enveloped in the misty clouds. Looking at the floating clouds pouring down from mountaintops will highlight your Huangshan trip.

As one of the four wonders, the Hot springs keep an average temperature of around 42.5℃ (108.5℉) averagely all year round. Taking a bath in hot spring while appreciating the wonderful natural landscapes will not only refresh your body and mind, but also help get away from the fatigue after a tiring Huangshan hiking.
