Mount Huangshan - CHINA - UNESCO #547

Look at this amazing thing that was waiting for me on my mailbox... not one but two cards from China, one of them a Maxi-Card! They have beautiful photos of Mount Huangshan and they were posted right there on this beautiful World Heritage Site... Thank you so much Hejun! Thanks to you I now have cards from 5 UNESCO sites... only 957 to go! This postcards took 17 days to arrive!

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.
