The Chavonnes Battery Museum hosts the Huangshan Mountain photography exhibition, a selection of 60 images and a digital slideshow of this UNESCO World Culture Heritage Site, UNESCO World Nature Heritage Site, and UNESCO Global GeoPark.
The Huangshan Mountain in the Anhui Province is one of the top tourist attractions in China, and its photography exhibition includes images of the Buddha halo (formed when the sunlight is reflected as a circle of light in the mountain mist) and The Lotus Peak (which resembles a lotus flower). Like Cape Town’s Table Mountain, famous for its granite rock, cloud formations and cable car, this exhibition showcases photographs of what is known as the “Five Wonders” – the seas of clouds resembling waves in the ocean; pine trees that thrive growing straight from cliffs in various postures; peculiarly-shaped granite peaks; the ever-flowing, healing hot springs; and the snow blanket creating a crystal world covering the landscape in winter.
