It is a 10 mins hike from Yuping cable car station. This place is crowded with tour groups. There are few food and snacks stalls. A good place for stop over and toilet break. Many tourists are taking selfies and personal photos of the iconic...More

We used this as our exit point from Mount Huangshan. Plenty of people coming in but quiet going down and easy to take a bus at the base of the mountain. The whole transport system is very organised although not cheap. Everything is clean and...More

It more fun watching the reactions of the Chinese people who visited this. We stopped to have a snack in the cool of the mountain air. Very good hike

You will see it if you take the cable car ride to the top portion of the mountain. It is no better than any other pine tree, and it is as beautiful as the rest.

So it's a famous pine tree and there were hordes of tourists trying to take selfies. Yes, it's beautiful but not worth the aggravation of pushy tourists clamoring for a shot while not respecting lines. If it's available without long lines it;s ok but I'd...More

Pine trees are aplenty on Huangshan mountain. As we hiked uphill, we came across many different types of pine tree. Hence this Welcome Pine does not really capture our attention. As it is one of the attractions, we just took a picture with it and...More
