Located in Xiuning county, Qiyun Mountain faces Huangshan Mountain in the south. It is a national key scenic and historic interest zone, a national forest and a national geological park. Its highest peak, Langya, "penetrates the sky, and is as high as the clouds", hence the name Qiyun (meaning it is as high as the cloud) Mountain. According to historical records, the top of the mountain was always enveloped in white clouds, so it was also known as the White Mountain.
