There are lots of pine trees everywhere on Mt Huangshan, some of which are shaped like the Greeting Pine. It is not spectacular but this is one of the icons of Mt Huangshan so we nonetheless took pictures with it. It's a short walk from...More

It's an interesting and rather busy tourist spot. You need to wait to get a nice picture. It's hundreds years old and a good represenation of all pine trees in Huangshan. It's the shape and the name that attracts all the attention. Nice but not...More

The Greeting Pine is well known to most Chinese, so every Chinese visitor to Huagnshan feels compelled to trek to the tree. It's cool, but one of thousands of beautiful trees on the mountain. Because it is old and historical, park officials are doing everything...More
