Located about 33 kilometers (20,5 miles) to the northwest of Huangshan city, Mount Qiyun earned its name from its spectacular sea of clouds which can be seen 260 days a year. Moreover, Mount Qiyun is one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Taoism. While hiking the mountain you will see a Taoist temple and many historic grottoes and inscriptions related to Taoism.
Mount Qiyun is not high, with an elevation of only 585 meters (1,919 ft). There is a cable car that reaches the top of the mountain within a few minutes. This mountain doesn't see many tourists and is worth visiting for those who are interested in Taoism.
