Huangshan Ltd

Huangshan, in Anhui Province, is a range of mountains consisting of 72 granite peaks. The Mount Huangshan Scenic Area attracts over 2 million visitors per annum ranking it amongst the top 5 tourist destinations in China. It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its scenery and role as a habitat for rare and threatened species.

Known to the Chinese as ‘the number one mountain under heaven’, Huangshan has inspired centuries of Chinese painters, poets and scholars. Its iconic beauty ranks it with the Yangtze River and the Great Wall as one of the most potent cultural and spiritual symbols of China.

The Mount Huangshan Scenic Area is privately owned and managed by the ‘Huangshan Tourism & Development Company Ltd’ and is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. China’s decades of rapid economic reform and the unwillingness of central government to allocate money and resources to such areas – has led to this process of privatisation.
