Oddly Shaped Pines
Mt. Huangshan has unique oddly shaped pines. All visitors who climb the mountain will be intoxicated with the fascinating pines in strange shapes. Growing usually at the summit, the pines are such hard plants that they have stuck their roots deep into the crevices in the rocks and survived by shunning from the rocks, some standing upright and some twisting and hanging upside-down from the cliffs and some with trunks and branched intertwined.

The pine trees add beauty to the picturesque mountain. Leading the ten most famous pine trees in Mount Huangshan, the Guest-greeting and Farewell Pine in front of Jade Screen Pavilion is over 1,000 years old. Ageless and graceful, this towering pine tree extends elegantly outward, looking like a hospitable host bidding a smiling welcome to sightseers from all over the world. It is indeed the symbol of Mountain Huangshan.

Huangshan Natural WondersPeaks
Mountain Huangshan has many rising and falling mountain peaks, among which 72 peaks are famous, such as Lotus Flower Peak, Bright Summit Peak and Heavenly Capital Peak. Of them the most steep is Heavenly Capital Peak, and the highest is Lotus Flower Peak. Picturesque rocks are seen everywhere in the mountains. They are in a myriad of fantastic strange rock, round at the bottom and sharp at the top just like an artist's brush.

From the crack in the top of the rock grows an elegant old pine tree, which is called as "Flowers and Grass from a Dream brush", because the rock below looks like a lying man. There are other unique and lifelike rocks in Mount Huangshan, such as Golden Cock Crowing at Heavenly Gate, Wu Song Striking the Tiger, the Monkey Observing the Sea, and Tianhai Beholding the Moon, etc. These natural rocks, which are a combination of stillness and movement, make Mount Huangshan more attractive.

The Sea of Clouds
There is a Chinese saying: "Since ancient times, there has been a sea of mist and clouds over Mt. Huangshan." The sea of mist and clouds can be seen in Mt. Huangshan all year round. Sometimes the clouds will float around your ankles like ever-changing seawater when you are walking along the path; sometimes the clouds will swirl over you within touch, like illusive floating cotton fiber in the wind. Especially after rain, the green peaks become more mysterious against the sea of mist and clouds surging up and down in the valley.

The underground springs and the hanging waterfalls make Mount Huangshan more fascinating.

The oddly shaped pine trees, spectacular rocky peaks, sea of clouds and hot springs form the unique beauty of Huangshan scenery. In 1990, Huangshan Scenic Area was defined as the "World's Cultural and Natural Heritage," and was put in the list of the "World-Famous Natural Heritages" by the UNESCO.
