Mount Huangshan is Located in the southern part of Anhui Province. Different scholars hold different arguments about the glaciation in Mount Huangshan during the Quarternary. After many times of investigation in Mount Huangshan, some types of periglacial landforms, which are rock deposition of cold period, frozen weathering substances, rock rivers, planation terrace, terrace of flow, cradle-valley, unsymmetrical valley and etc., were discovered. After analysis of the palaeogeographic environment, the authors concluded that the topography were formed by congelifraction and rivers under the monsoon-type periglacial environment during Quarternary glaciation in Mount Huangshan.
