Huangshan Mountain, located in South Anhui province, has 72 peaks, the top three of which are the 1,864-meter Lianhua Peak, Guangming Peak and Tiandu Peak.

Pine trees growing in unique shapes, rocks, hot springs, waterfalls and mountain springs are all available here.

The Guest-Greeting Pine is one of the most popular spots in the mountain. It symbolizes local people's warm welcome to tourists and China's etiquette culture.

Huangshan Mountain is regarded as "the loveliest mountain of China" and has been acclaimed in art and literature throughout Chinese history.

Today a large number of poets, painters and photographers still visit the awe-inspiring site.
