What are worth visiting and seeing?


The highest peak of Mount Luofu is Feiyun Peak 飞云顶 of Mount Luofu, 1296 meters above sea level, followed by the upper boundary peak of Fushan Mountain, 1276 meters above sea level.

The flying cloud top is sharp and round. It looks around and reaches the cave. The clouds often rise. Not far to the east of the mountaintop, the valley is full of miscellaneous trees. There is the former site of Ziri Pavilion 紫日亭 built by Zhao Ruyu 赵汝驭 of the Song Dynasty, which is the best place to climb the Feiyun Peak and watch the sunrise. The top of Mount Luodfu is a grassland of about 100 square meters, with dense flowers and herbs. Looking from the Feiyun Peak, four hundred peaks and ridges loomed in the sea of clouds, just as the predecessors called “four hundred peaks and ridges in the sea of clouds”.

Baishili Waterfall 白石漓瀑布 is the most spectacular waterfall in Lingnan, which is hidden at the end of the Great Pit in the Peach Garden 桃子园. The huge stone wall stands thousands of feet, and the two banks are surrounded by huge vines and shrubs. The next day, the stone atmosphere is dense. The waterfall flew down from the 87-meter-high cliff, and the rocks fell into three folds. Flying in the sky, like the Milky Way falling into the sky, the white rainbow drinks from the stream. The water is angry and scattered into smoke. It is empty and rumbling. A hundred paces away, your clothes are wet. The natives call it upper, middle, and lower water.

The quadrangle 四合院 is a kind of traditional Chinese courtyard building, its pattern is a courtyard built on four sides of the house, usually composed of the main room, the east and west wing rooms, and the inverted seat room, from the four sides of the courtyard enclosed in the middle, so the name of the courtyard.

Shanxi is one of the “nine frontier provinces” and has had frequent wars since ancient times. Large merchants pay special attention to the safety of their homes. Defensiveness is emphasized in Shanxi residences: the closed appearance of the courtyard shows the vigilance of the outside world, and the outer walls of the Courtyard of Shanxi Residential Buildings are all gray clear-water brick walls, with simple and single colors, and the appearance is high and closed. But the interior is beautifully gorgeous. Although the houses are unified but not monotonous, rich but not messy, and delicate but not trivial.

Historical culture

Taoism 道教 and Buddhism 佛教 are flourishing together in Luofu Mountain, which is rare among the famous mountains in China. It is appropriate for Boluo County Party Committee and People’s Government to focus on building Luofu Mountain as a religious tourist resort.

Apart from Taoism and Buddhism, Confucianism 儒家 is also very developed in Luofu Mountain. In Luofu Mountain, there were the official Yuzhang Academy 豫章书院 and Jingguan Academy 静观书院 in the Southern Song Dynasty. Confucianism is also an important part of Luofu culture, which cannot be ignored.

After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Premier Zhou Enlai 周恩来 went to Mount Luofu in person to give specific instructions on the construction of Mount Luofu. Premier Zhou explicitly instructed to protect the Chongxu Ancient Temple, so that this 1600-year-old ancient building can be preserved. In addition, seven marshals, including Ye Jianying 叶剑英 and Chen Yi 陈毅, among the top ten marshals of New China, have visited Luofu Mountain, making the famous mountain more beautiful.
