Chinese Painting Coming alive
Mount Huang, also known as Huangshan ( 黄山; Yellow Mountain), is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China.
The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly-shaped granite peaks, Huangshan Pine trees, and views of the clouds from above.
Mount Huang is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, as well as modern photography.

Nature is simply the best tour guide we have ever had. We had so many changes to our schedule because of flight cancellations but he accommodated all of them. He is very knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a guide for this area. Could not have been better.
