It is deep and narrow, with extremely strong mysterious color. It consists of three parts: the Luogu Valley, Golden-Peak-Green-Screen Mountain(Jinding Cuiping Mountain)and the Fuhe Mountain. The main landscape includes highland pastures, valentine’s dam,” “mountain girl”, “mother tree”, Baizhang whispering gallery, the Grand River cuckoo screen, Shilin, Huashan, dripping rock, stone pot, etc.
No one has ever fully gone through its gullies, or knows how many rocks or streams there are. People who walked into the land feel that they have entered unearthly paradise, surrounded by virgin forests, with feet on the thick moss-covered blanket, eyes filled with endless scenery, and ears full of birds and stream’s singing.
The reason why Lovers Dam got its beautiful name is that when Dragon Boat Festival coming, the Pumis from all around would get together dancing and singing on the dam to celebrate their Valentines’ Day.
Echoing Wall is located at the headstream of Luoguo Qing North Channel, with an altitude of 3,000 meters. A group of huge and thick sandstone forms a cliff over one hundred meters high. The wall is smooth and flattening. When shout towards the wall, the sound fly upwards and resounds for a long time. So it is called Echoing Wall.
It is the junction of Lanping, Weixi and Lijiang. From south to north, Dayang river turns back to the green pastures, like a silver dragon living here.
Danxia and Stone Forest Lanscape
The Danxia and stone scene here is unique. Because the river bed is covered with red Danxia stone, the crystal bottom of the water is like thick coffee.
