Situated in southern Anhui province in East China, Huangshan Mountain is designated as one of China's top 10 scenic spots. It has charmed countless number of tourists from home and abroad. Huangshan Mountain can be regarded as an amalgamation of all the merits of other mountains: grand, steep, picturesque, and with a rich cultural heritage. Xu Xiake, a well-known geographer of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), once said, "When I have visited Huangshan Mountain, I don't even wish to visit others."
In 1990, Huangshan Mountain was placed on the World Heritage List by the UNESCO. The year 2004 saw it rated as one of the world's geo-parks, and in 2007 it was included in China's first batch of AAAAA class tourism zones. Furthermore, it has been granted some other honors, such as a national key scenic area, a national forest park, and a national geological park. In fact, the natural and cultural tourism resources, all extremely abundant and colorful, have made this mountain a famous tourist attraction not just for China but for the whole world at large.
In winter, the mountain becomes a world of frost and ice with silver rocks and boughs everywhere. It is one of the best places to view snowy landscapes and rime and glaze scenery in China.
