The strange pines, sea of clouds, hot springs and strange stones of Huangshan are known as the four wonders of Huangshan. The four wonders of Huangshan refer to the four unique landscapes of Huangshan in Anhui Province, China. Huangshan, located in Huangshan City, Anhui Province, formerly known as Yishan, was renamed Huangshan in the Tang Dynasty, which means "the mountain of the Yellow Emperor". Huangshan is a world natural and cultural heritage, a World Geopark, one of the top ten places of interest in China and a national 5A scenic spot.
Huangshan stretches for hundreds of miles, with thousands of peaks and valleys, all of which are pine. Huangshan pine is a variant of Chinese pine formed by Huangshan's unique landform and climate. There is a great relationship between the various forms of Huangshan pine and the natural environment of Huangshan. In order to resist storm and frost, the needles of Huangshan pine are short and thick, the crown is flat as cut, the color is green and deep, and the trunk and branches are also very tough and elastic. Another characteristic of Huangshan pine is that many pine trees grow branches only on one side due to wind and sun. Huangshan pine is tough, proud, beautiful and strange, but the growth environment is very difficult, so the growth rate is extremely slow. A tall Huangshan pine is often hundreds or even hundreds of years old; The root is often several times or dozens of times longer than the trunk. Because the root is very deep, Huangshan pine can stand firmly on the rock. Although it has experienced wind and frost, it still remains young.
