Huangshan, also known as the Yellow Mountains, is a mountain range located in Anhui Province in eastern China. The peaks of the mountain range rise to an elevation of over 1,800 meters, with the highest peak, Lotus Peak, reaching 1,864 meters.

Huangshan is known for its breathtaking scenery, including towering granite peaks, twisted pine trees, and sea of clouds. The area is also home to numerous hot springs, waterfalls, and scenic trails for hiking and trekking.

The mountain range has been a source of inspiration for many Chinese painters and poets over the centuries, and is considered one of China's most iconic natural landmarks. In 1990, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is visited by millions of tourists every year.

There are several scenic spots throughout Huangshan that are popular with visitors, including the Cloud Dispelling Pavilion, Xihai Grand Canyon, and the Flying Stone.
