Huangshan is located in the southern city of Huangshan, Anhui Province. It is about 40 kilometers long in the north and south, about 30 kilometers wide in the East and west, with a total area of about 1200 square kilometers. Among them, the area of Huangshan Scenic Spot is 160.6 square kilometers, spanning 118 01 118 17 East longitude, 30 01 30 18 North latitude, Huangshi in the east, Xiaoling foot in the west, Erlong Bridge in the north and Tangkou Town in the south. It is divided into nine administrative areas: hot spring, Yungu, Yuping, Beihai, Songgu, Diaoqiao, Fuxi, Yanghu and Fugu.

The buffer zone covers an area of 490.9 square kilometers and is bounded by the administrative boundary of one of the five towns (Tangkou Town, Tanjiaqiao Town, Sankou Town, Geng Town, Jiao Town and Yanghu Forest Farm) adjacent to the scenic spot.

Mount Huangshan is located in the subtropical monsoon climate zone with high mountains and deep valleys. The climate varies vertically. Local topography plays a leading role in the climate. It has more clouds and fogs, higher humidity and more precipitation. It forms a special monsoon climate in mountainous areas. There is no severe summer and less severe winter. The average annual precipitation is 2369.3 mm, the average annual rain day is 180.6 days, mostly concentrated in April-June, snow day 32.9 days, foggy day 259 days, gale 118.7 days, annual average temperature 7.9 degrees Celsius, summer maximum temperature 27 degrees Celsius, winter minimum temperature - 22 degrees Celsius, the longest rainless period 40 days. There are dense trees, numerous streams and waterfalls in the scenic area. The atmospheric quality keeps grade I all the year round. The average concentration of PM2.5 in the air is 5 micrograms/cubic meters. The concentration of negative oxygen ions in the air is stable over 20,000/cm 3 for a long time. It is called "natural oxygen bar".

Huangshan Mountain experienced orogeny, crustal uplift, glacier and natural weathering before its peak forest structure was formed. Huangshan has 72 peaks, known as "36 peaks, 36 small peaks", the main peak of the Lotus Peak as high as 1864.8 meters above sea level, with the bright peak, Tiandu Peak, called the three main peaks of Huangshan, one of 36 peaks.

The Huangshan Mountains are mainly composed of Yanshanian granite. Vertical joints are well developed, erosion and cutting are intense, faults and fissures are interlaced, and water-soluble erosion is long-term, forming granite caves and channels. There are 30 mountains, 22 rocks, 7 holes and 2 Customs. The Quaternary glacial relics in Mount Huangshan are mainly distributed in the southeastern part of the former mountain.

Huangshan has a 800 million-year geological history, combines peak forest landforms and glacial remains in one, and has rich and typical geological landscapes such as granite sculpture stone, granite cave, Quantanxi waterfall. The front mountain rock mass is sparse with many spherical weathering, and the back mountain rock mass is dense with columnar weathering and steep, forming the landform characteristics of "grand Front Mountain and beautiful back mountain".
