Greeting Pine (Ying Ke Song), Huangshan

3.1
High on the treeline of Huangshan mountain range stands Greeting Pine (Ying Ke Song)--an ancient tree known for its composition and spectacular location. Take a cable car up to the range, and follow the hiking trail to the viewing platform to find the famous conifer, rooted at an altitude of around 1,800 m (5,900 ft) above sea level. The 1,500-year-old pine enjoys immense popularity, so on clear days expect to run into a lot of people snapping self-portraits on the viewing platform.

  • Until you reach close to jade Pingtung side of passengers Aerial Ropeways and earnestly is the matrix. Not quite ago. As a pine, a pine probably in Huangshan at major impressions may have said and even less to me. I do not hate, but in front of the pine yuping hotel and souvenir or a simple meal.
