Longtan scenery is poetic, Laiwu River Mountain scenery is magnificent.
At 840 meters above sea level, the mountain peaks rise abruptly, and there are three cliffs, which can only be climbed to the west. Legend has it that the Bixia Yuanjun of Mount Tai made a tour to the east, and the mountain is not vulgar. That is to say, according to the model of Mount Tai, it was changed by gold and fire. It is very similar to Mount Tai, so it is called "Mount Jintai". The seastone on the top of Mount Jintai, more than 9 meters long, is the landmark landscape of Mount Jintai, like a sword straight into the sky, with great ornamental value. To the west of the exploratory sea rocks, there are four huge stones overlapping each other. On the top, there is a round stone, showing a large Buddha head with broad forehead, high nose, broad mouth and narrow eyes. Among them, the long round stone is the stomach of the Buddha, and the two stones under it are the feet. The upper and lower feet are 40 meters high, and the distant view is like a Luohan, hence the name "Triassic Luohan". At the top of the mountain, there are also moving stones, pythons and other landscapes.
At 860 meters above sea level, it is famous for its strange stone caves. After thousands of years of wind and rain erosion, the hills and valleys have formed smooth and round pebbles, which look like white clouds floating among green mountains and trees from afar. There are "Crouching Tiger Stone" in shape like a tiger, and "Dragon Stone" in shape like Jiaolong, as well as "Eagle-billed Stone", "Love Margin Stone", "Golden Turtle Stone", "Hengkong Birth", "Wordless Stele" and so on. They have different shapes, vivid, spiritual and life, and each has its own origin and story. Under the Baiyan, numerous caves have been formed, some as large as the living room, some as deep as unfathomable, and some caves are connected, one of which penetrates through the mountain body, which is of great ornamental value. The ballad says, "Shiyun Mountain, Shiyun Mountain, seventy-two caves inhabit immortals".
There are also two huge stones on the top of the mountain, which are arranged from left to right. There are 20 meters wide avenue leading directly to Tianjie, forming a natural stone gate, engraved with the word "Tianmen", simple and solemn, and integrated with the landscape. At the south foot of Shiyun Mountain, there are four mountains: Tianwang Mountain, Fenghuang Mountain, Jinguiling Mountain and Foguangling Mountain. There are five valleys: Fengyue Valley, Qingyun Valley, Crouching Tiger Valley, Panlong Valley and Leijian Valley.

The Peach Garden
"Hidden flying bridges are separated by wild smoke, fishing boats are asked on the West Bank of Shiji, flowers are picked everyday and water is flowing. Where is the hole in the Qingxi River". Zhang Xu's poem "Peach Blossom Source" and Tao Yuanming's "Peach Blossom Source Record" are both popular poems. Mao Zedong once wrote, "Tao Ling does not know where to go, and peach blossom Source can cultivate fields". Although Fanggan's Peach Blossom Source is not related to the above poems, its geographical environment and landscape are strikingly similar to the ancient Peach Blossom Source. Peach blossom is a green world, the valley bottom of ancient trees towering, shading the sky, hills and grasses, a dark green, occasionally several peach trees in the "green bushes in a little red" in her extraordinary beauty. The gushing mountain springs and gurgling streams also seem to be flowing endlessly green.
