Baiyun Shan, Guangzhou

My pictures of White Cloud Mountain (Báiyún Shān 白雲山), in Guangzhou, China from my 2009 trip to China. Baiyun Shan is considered the most beautiful area in Guangzhou and several of its scenic views are on the list of the eight top tourist attractions for the city. Baiyun Mountain gets its name from the view of the mountain peaks shrouded by white clouds in late Spring or when the sky clears after it rains. White Cloud Mountain is located north of Guangzhou and has been a scenic retreat since the Warring States period of China inspiring many poets and artists throughout China’s history.
