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.
