Declared as a "site of scenic beauty and historic interest" by the State Council of the People's Republic of China, Huangshan was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990 for its scenery and for its role as a habitat for rare and threatened species.

Much of Huangshan's reputation derives from its significance in Chinese art and literature. In addition to inspiring poets such as Li Bai, Huangshan and the scenery therein has been the frequent subject of poetry and artwork, especially Chinese ink painting and, more recently, photography. Huangshan is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature, as well as modern photography. Huangshan was formed approximately 100 million years ago and gained its unique rock formations in the Quaternary Glaciation.

The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly shaped granite peaks, Huangshan Pine trees, and views of the clouds touching the mountainsides for more than 200 days out of the year. One writer remarked on the view of the clouds from Huangshan as follows: To enjoy the magnificence of a mountain, you have to look upwards in most cases.

To enjoy Mount Huangshan, however, you've got to look downward. The mountaintops often offer views of the clouds from above, known as the Sea of Clouds or "Huangshan Sea" because of the cloud's resemblance to an ocean, and many vistas are known by names such as "North Sea" or "South Sea." Huangshan is also known for its stone steps, carved into the side of the mountain, of which there may be more than 60,000 throughout the area. The date at which work on the steps began is unknown, but they have been said to be over 1,500 years old.

A phenomenon known as Buddha's Light is also well-known and, on average, Buddha's Light only appears a couple of times per month. In addition, Huangshan has multiple hot springs, most of them located at the foot of the Purple Cloud Peak. The water stays at 42 °C all year and has a high concentration of carbonates, and is said to help prevent skin, joint, and nerve illness.
