Mount Huangshan

Huangshan is known as the loveliest mountain in China and is also famous for the Chinese tea

Huangshan Mountain
Huangshan (Chinese黄山), is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China. Vegetation on the range is thickest below 1,100 meters (3,600 ft), with trees growing up to the treeline at 1,800 meters (5,900 ft).
The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly-shaped granite peaks, Huangshan pine trees, hot springs, winter snow, and views of the clouds from above. Huangshan is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, as well as modern photography. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of China's major tourist destinations. Huangshan is also the famous place for Chinese teas of high quality, such as Huangshan Maofeng, Keemun Black, and Blooming Tea.

Huangshan pine
Pinus hwangshanensis, or Huangshan pine, is a pine endemic to the mountains of eastern China, in the provinces of AnhuiFujianGuizhouHubeiHunanJiangxi, and Zhejiang; it is named after the Huangshan Mountains in Anhui, from where it was first described.
Pinus hwangshanensis is an evergreen tree reaching 15–25 metres (49–82 ft) in height, with a very broad, flat-topped crown of long, level branches.
Huangshan pines typically grow at moderate to high altitudes on steep, rocky crags, and are a major vegetation component in the exceptional landscapes of eastern China. Many specimens are venerated for their unique rugged shapes, and are frequently portrayed in traditional Chinese paintings. - in: wikipedia
