UNESCO #547 - Mount Huangshan - CHINA
UNESCO #547 - Mount Huangshan - CHINA (Maxi-Card)
Huangshan, known as 'the loveliest mountain of China', was acclaimed
through art and literature during a good part of Chinese history (e.g.
the Shanshui 'mountain and water' style of the mid-16th century). Today
it holds the same fascination for visitors, poets, painters and
photographers who come on pilgrimage to the site, which is renowned for
its magnificent scenery made up of many granite peaks and rocks emerging
out of a sea of clouds.
