The Yellow Mountain (2011)

The Yellow Mountain or Huangshan, located in Anhui province, has special place in the heart of Chinese people. Believed as the best mountains on earth, the mountain range is praised by a famous sentence from Xu Xiake, a poet and travel-writer from the Ming Dinasty about 4 centuries ago: “Returning from the five Top Mountains, you don’t need to see other mountains; Returning from Huangshan, you don’t need to see any of the Top Mountains.”
