Mount Huangshan


  • Mount Huangshan is in the southern Chinese province of Anhui. In 1990 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its scenery and for its part as a home for rare and endangered species.
  • Mount Huangshan, is called as the “loveliest mountain of China”. Since the Tang Dynasty around the 8th century it has played an important part in the history of literature and art in China. Because of its impressive mountainous site containing many granitic peaks, several of which more than a kilometre high, rising through a permanent sea of clouds, Mount Huangshan became an attraction for landscape artists, poets and hermits. Since around the 16th century, during the Ming Dynasty this landscape as well as its several grotesquely-shaped rocks and gnarled, ancient trees motivated the important Shanshui (“Mountain and Water”) school of landscape painting, offering a fundamental representation of the oriental landscape in the world’s art and imagination.
  • Mount Huangshan is spread over an area of 154 square kilometres and a buffer zone of 142 square kilometres. It is of great importance for the conservation of a large number of nationally or locally endemic plant species, a few of which are threatened with extinction and for its botanical wealth.
