Sea of Cloud

As the Yellow Mountains Range is high and dense with lush forests and has plenty of rainfall, it can be seen wrapped in misty clouds in all four seasons of the year, for about two thirds of the time. Therefore, the Yellow Mountains are also called ''Yunhai'' (Sea of Clouds) which is geographically divided into North Sea, West Sea, East Sea, Heavenly Sea and Front Sea. These seas of clouds, vast and misty, billowing and surging, veil the valleys and mountains and allow only the peaks to show like green islands over their boundless foamy expanses. At daybreak, the rising sun casts its golden rays on the silver sea of clouds, making the Yellow Mountains Range even more enchanting.
