From the new guide in our app (Shanghai by @oscartarneberg): Huangshan - the Yellow Mountain (黄山). OK, so this one isn’t really in Shanghai, but accessible and spectacular enough to warrant including in this guide.
A UNESCO heritage sight and one of China’s major tourist destinations, the soaring granite peaks and twisted pine trees of Huangshan, along with the “sea-like” clouds below, feature often in Chinese painting and literature. Today the area is a popular spot for photographers. The name Huangshan, or Yellow Mountain, was reportedly given to the mountain not because of its appearance, but in honour of the Yellow Emperor.
