Huangshan Mountain attracts many tourists every year with
its grotesque rocks, dramatic pines, seas of clouds
and hot springs. Situated south of the Yangtze River
and between Taiping and Shexian counties in Anhui
Province, it covers more than 1,600 square kilometers
with a circumference of 120 kilometers.
Xu Xiake (1586-1641), a Ming Dynasty
traveler, wrote: "It, is not worth seeing other
mountains if you have been to the Five Great Mountains;
and it is not worth seeing the Five Great Mountains
if you have been to Mount Huangshan." Such high
praise of Mount Huangshan is typical of that it has
received for hundreds of years.
Mount Huangshan has 72 distinct peaks, among
which the Lotus Flower Peak, Brightness Top and Celestial
Capital Peak rise over 1,800 meters above sea level.
Countless travel notes written in past centuries describe
its beautiful scenery from various angles.
Every peak on Mount Huangshan has countless
rocks of interesting contours. Different names have
been given to them according to people's imagination,
such as the Monkey Enjoying the Sea View, the Immortal
Pointing the Way, the Lion Grove, the Writing Brush
Bursts into Bloom and the Lotus Flower Peak.
After a rain, clouds and mist rise in the
valley to engulf the mountain peaks. Pinnacles above
the clouds look like islets in the sea, hence seas of
cloud. At sunrise, the seas of cloud become different
colors, adding to the beauty of the mountain. With the
moving of the clouds, the mountain takes on ever-changing
moods. This effect can also be seen on Mount Taishan.
Mount Lushan, Mount Emei and Mount Hengshan, but not
as wonderful as that on Mount Huangshan.
Mount Huangshan is covered with pines which
have their roots deep in rock crevices and are forced
to grow into strange and fascinating shapes by the astonishing
forms of the mountain - its sheer precipices, overhanging
crags, jutting peaks and steep ravines. Some creep over
rocks, some interwine with them, while others bow or
overhang the cliffs. The hardy Huangshan pines with
short, thick needles fanning out into umbrella shapes
grow mostly in the cold area over 800 meters above sea
level. The thousand-year-old Welcoming Guests Pine near
the Jade Screen Tower, for instance, still flourishes
and is regarded as the representative of Huangshan pines.
Springs and hot springs on Mount Huangshan
are another wonder. The temperature of hot spring water
stays at around 42¡æ, all year round. Clear
and sweet, the water is ideal for drinking and bathing.
