Greeting Pine (Ying Ke Song), Huangshan

3.2
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.
