Huangshan is a natural exhibition of oddly-shaped rocks. These rocks are unique in shape and have a charm all of their own. The big rock towers look like stone needles and towers. The smaller boulders have also caught the imagination. Some look like animals, some look like various gods, and some get their name from historical stories or mythical tales.
In Huangshan’s forest of peaks odd-shaped rocks are abundant. More than 120 peaks and rocks have been named. The most famous rocks are the Flying over Stone and Immortal Sunning His Boot, both near Dispersing Cloud Pavilion, and Monkey Watching the Sea, sitting on Lion Peak, on the way down to Pine Valley Nunnery from North Sea Hotel.
