She wrotes that Mount Huang is praised as " the Most Unique Mountain" . The mountain is famous for it's pine trees, peculiarly shaped granite peaks and views of the clouds. It was listed as UNESCO World Heritage list in 1990.
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.
