Not sure why this is famous
Nov 2019
Don't really understand why this is famous. It's a nice tree but there are many beautiful trees on the mountain. If you don't pass by it, skip it and just enjoy the amazing views instead. Also, very crowded

The most famous landmark in a Huangshan Mountain
Oct 2018 • Friends
The Greeting pine is by far the most well-known landmark in Huangshan. It is located just outside of Yu Pin Lou Hotel and facing the ultimate challenging hiking, Tan Du Feng. It’s a location to view the sunrise and not far from it, to view the sunset. It’s a must visit spot if Huangshan Mo7ntain Trip.

Iconic Pine Tree
Sep 2018 • Friends
It is a 10 mins hike from Yuping cable car station. This place is crowded with tour groups. There are few food and snacks stalls. A good place for stop over and toilet break. Many tourists are taking selfies and personal photos of the iconic Greeting Pine, which can be seen from the platform down a few steps. Personally, this Greeting Pine is nothing spectacular as pine trees are everywhere. I think the pine trees at Refreshing Terrace and Black Tiger Pine are much more imposing.

beautiful ride down the mountain
Jul 2018 • Solo
We used this as our exit point from Mount Huangshan. Plenty of people coming in but quiet going down and easy to take a bus at the base of the mountain. The whole transport system is very organised although not cheap. Everything is clean and well maintained.

It more fun watching the reactions of the Chinese people who visited this. We stopped to have a snack in the cool of the mountain air. Very good hike

Iconic but not spectacular
Sep 2017 • Friends
There are lots of pine trees everywhere on Mt Huangshan, some of which are shaped like the Greeting Pine. It is not spectacular but this is one of the icons of Mt Huangshan so we nonetheless took pictures with it. It's a short walk from the Yuping cable car station - walk up the 好汉坡 from the cable car station, turn right and walk until you see shops, and the Greeting Pine can be seen from the platform down a few steps.

Package tours from Singapore don't visit this as the Greeting Pine is at the 前山(Western Steps). Instead, package tours from Singapore visit the 探海松 (Exploring Ocean Pine) also nicknamed 小迎客松 (Mini Greeting Pine) at 后山 (Eastern Steps).

Many Pine trees on Huangshan
Aug 2017 • Family
There is many pines on mountain. However, this pine will be a good indicator that your are nearing your hotel if you stay along the front part of the mountain

Noce but not spectacular
Jul 2017 • Solo
It's an interesting and rather busy tourist spot. You need to wait to get a nice picture. It's hundreds years old and a good represenation of all pine trees in Huangshan. It's the shape and the name that attracts all the attention. Nice but not spectacular.

The 6 million RMB per year tree
Jun 2017 • Friends
We were told that the govevrnment spends 6m RMB per year to maintain this tree. The branches and trunks are mechanically supported. It was a nice view point.

Fantastic views

You will see it if you take the cable car ride to the top portion of the mountain. It is no better than any other pine tree, and it is as beautiful as the rest.
