Mount Huangshan

Huangshan is often calledNext mountain in heavenIt consists of 72 steep peaks The highest mountain is the lotus peak, 1860 meters high. If you want to climb to his top, you can choose a cable, or 4000 steps!

Huangshan has been cherished by Chinese painters and calligraphers for a long time. Xu Xiaoke, a famous Chinese writer and geologist, visited Huangshan twice and left a classic comment as follows: Those who have seen the five sacred mountains do not need to visit other peaks, but those who have seen Huangshan are no longer gratified to see the five mountains.

  • Bagongshan tofu Tofu was born in this area.
  • "Stinky tofu"The smell of fermented tofu is very strong. I really don't like him, but this person deserves to be included in the list because of this particularity! For the bravest
