Yellow Mountain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in east China's Anhui Province. It is renowned for magnificent natural scenery which includes massive granitic boulders, old pine trees and a sea of clouds.

In recent years, Yellow Mountain has drawn an average of three million visitors annually, but throughout history, the mountain has been a mainstay of Chinese literature and art. Today it holds the same fascination for visitors, poets, painters and photographers from all over the world.

The next promotion event will be held in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, according to Wang.
