The main attraction of Huangshan Mountain, the magnificent Lion Peak can’t be missed. As its name suggests, Lion Peak appears as a crouching lion, with its head facing west and tail facing. With its head rising toward Danxia Peak, the lion takes Qingliang Pavilion as its waist, Dawn Pavilion, its tail, and the site of Lion Forest Temple, its mouth.
Lion Peak is surrounded by lofty pines, gurgling hot springs, and a verdant pine forest all year. Seen from the flower-scattering temple and Beihai Hotel, the Lion Peak reveals particularly lifelike.
Standing on the Lion Peak, visitors get an amazing view of Gongyang Mountain, Begin-to-Believe Peak and Bright Summit and other natural formations. On the right of Lion Peak lies Flower-Scattering Valley, which is packed with picturesque rocks, impressive peaks, grand legendary pines, and bright clusters of flowers. What is more, in the vicinity of Lion Peak stands Beihai Hotel and many visitors stop there for rest when climbing Huangshan Mountain.
