Mount HuangShan~~

View On Black 看大图

 

Of all the notable mountains in China, Mount HuangShan, to be found in the south of AnHui province, is probably the most famous. Originally known as Mt. YiShan, it was renamed Mt. HuangShan in 747 AD in recognition of the legendary Huang Di, who was the reputed ancestor of the Chinese people and who made magic pills for immortality here.

 

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

 

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 it in all the different seasons.

 

This time I traveled with my parents. We had a really great time. The 5day on the mountain, we had 4times hard showers during our tour. But don’t think “poor Sunny”, because we are so lucky to have the rain in the dry season. And more lucky to be in the right place at the right time to see the most famous “The sea of clouds” .

 

Hope you enjoy the mystic powers as much as we did.
