Flying-over Rock at Dusk, Huangshan (Yellow Mountains), China

Flying-over Rock at Dusk, Baiyun Scenic Area, Huangshan (Yellow Mountains), China

Mount Huang, also known as Huangshan (literally “Yellow Mountain”), is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China. The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly-shaped granite peaks, Huangshan Pine trees, and views of the clouds from above. Mount Huang is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, as well as modern photography. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of China’s major tourist destinations.

The Flying-over Rock is located to the northwest of Bright Summit in the Baiyun scenic area of Huangshan Mountain. It is so-named because its shape resembles a rock having just fallen from the sky. The rock is 12 meters high, 8 meters wide with a weight of 360 tons. Surprisingly, the Flying-over Rock is set upright on a flat rock which is about 12-15 meters long and 8-10 meters wide.
