Introduction of scenic spots

Lu Ren Miao Beach

Located opposite Luren Village in Guan'e Gou, it is said that the temple where the generals of Ming Taizu often met Chun was located. The grassland is flat, the pine forests are lush and the flowers are brilliant.

Zhang man Dong

Zhangye Cave is located between Huaertan and Tongtianmen. Long, long ago, the crustal movement caused the cliff to sink inward, forming a natural cave. Although this cave seems ordinary, people respect it as Zhangye Cave.

Legend has it that during the Hongwu period of the Daming Dynasty, the Emperor of the Ming Dynasty was named one of the Twelve Dragon Kings. King Zhang Dulong practiced in Guangegou, where he drew water from Zhangyedong. Because the Dragon King was in charge of Si Yu, the local people sacrificed the Dragon King of Zhangdu for years in order to keep the weather in order. And the stone cave where King Zhang Dulong draws water to rest is honorably called Zhang Yedong. Zhang Ye worshipped in Guan'e Gou family, especially in Lijieshan and Hejiabao villages.

Chi Feng Ling

Along Touziquan, a steep mountain appeared before people's eyes. On the rocks of the mountain, there stood a pine tree. The whole mountain was buzzing with birds, and there were nests everywhere between the rocks. Legend has it that the Phoenix Mountain god worshipped by the local people inhabits here, so it is named Qifengling.

At the entrance of Guan'e Gou Piaochang Tea-horse Mutual Market, the two mountains are opposite, the cliffs are steep, the cliffs are vast, there is a tendency of "Tianmen interruption". It is the throat fortress leading to Guan'e Gou. Locals call it "Tianmen". Legend has it that long ago, there was a Qiang named Zhang Du who was very intelligent, read books extensively, and was kind and charitable. He was respected as the leader of the Qiang people. There are thousands of valuable Chinese medicinal herbs in Guan'e Valley, which is also a good place for hunting. However, there is a mountain block, isolated from the world, Qiang people need to climb around the wall to enter the valley, which is often unexpected. So Zhang Du practiced Taoism in a stone cave here. He stood in front of the mountain in despair. He asked the heavens and prayed for the way to the heavens. Every day, he moved the heavens. One day, suddenly, thunder and lightning flashed, the sky was dark, and suddenly heard a tremendous noise. The mountain broke open and formed a natural stone gate. People went to watch, but they saw that Zhang Du had turned into a huge stone standing in the gorge, known as "Asking Heavenly Stone". Zhang Du had been tempered into a fairy, was named one of the Twelve Dragon Kings, guarding the pulse of this place. In memory of him, later generations called the cave "Zhangye Cave" and the gorge "Tongtianmen".

Frog Month

Here is a huge stone shaped like a toad, mouth for more than 10 people gathered together in the cave, mouth open, have the potential to swallow the world. Legend has it that people outside the ditch gather and exchange their belongings. Some become friends. They often talk loudly under the "Pearl Waterfall" and startle a clam in the beach who has practiced for thousands of years. So he hid at the foot of the hill opposite the beach, often eavesdropping on people's conversations. Over time, the toad realized many human senses, and finally fully understood and sat down to become immortals.

Tong Tian Men

Here, the two mountains confront each other. The mountain is like a ladder to the sky. The two mountains are close to form a natural mountain gate. From a distance, the mountain is steep and beautiful.

Legend has it that in the Hongwu period of the Daming Dynasty, there lived the Wood Dragon King in Guangegou. The Wood Dragon King was ambitious and ambitious. He wanted to create a great cause. He found that this place was a magical place, and it was a treasure land of geomantic omen. He occupied this place as king and wanted to dominate the world, so he called it Tongtianmen.

Piggyback yard

Long ago, Guan'e Gou primitive forest was hidden in the sky and abounds in many precious medicinal materials. At the same time, it was also a paradise for wild animals such as bears, leopards, rock sheep, antelopes and pheasants. Local people picked Chinese medicine, hunted animals, and then exchanged for some necessities of life outside, forming a Tea-Horse market, which became a famous mountain goods gathering and distributing place, so it was also called a piggyback farm. It has been used up to now.

Diamond rock

Because it looks like a diamond, the drill is facing the sky. It is said that when Nuwa mended the sky, his hand slipped to this point, but his mind never moved, and he always wanted to drill to mend the sky. So it is called "diamond".

The winding path leads to a secluded quiet place

Between the first parking lot and the second parking lot, mountains from east to West form a canyon, with steep mountains on one side. On the other side, the mountains are gentle, beautiful and pleasant. The rocks in the canyon are rugged, and there are gurgling water. During the period, the plant landscape, geological landscape, meteorological landscape and water landscape in the canyon can be seen as if they had entered the natural wild botanical gardens, such as blue sky, white clouds, birds and flowers. There are poems saying, "Mountain green pine with late green, turbulent rapids between the rocks," a school of heavy ink landscape.

Green Dragon diarrhea beads

In the second parking lot, you can see the general spring pouring down from the cliff and cliff cave on the hillside, the water curtain splashing, such as smoke, a basin-shaped beach under the waterfall, surrounded by rocks and green trees, the air is fresh and incomparable, the environment is beautiful and refreshing.

Legend has it that during the Wanli years of the Zong Dynasty, the Qiang people offended God, the earth had been drought for three years, the grain had not been harvested, the Qiang people's background had left home, and they had been displaced. At this time, the Dragon King in charge of the rain was unbearable, resolutely violated the rules of heaven, and rained privately, provoking the Jade Emperor to press him under the cliff and turn him into a cliff. However, a waterfall erupted from Longkou, like a waterfall drifting in the mountains and green waters all the year round. Bailian.

Panlong Gorge

Panlong Gorge is the first secret door of Guangegou. The word "secret door" is a local dialect, meaning "steep stone gorge". Panlong Gorge gives the impression that it is formed by two rocky mountains facing each other and closing in front of each other. About a hundred meters long, circling twists and turns, people feel like a circling dragon passing by. On both sides of the canyon are Qisensensensen's stone walls, glassy and wet. The walls of the gorge are uneven, concave and convex. When people come to the places where the stone edges are protruding, they will meet accidentally. The River sprinkled with joy into the canyon, flowed out along the narrow wall, swaying eastward and westward, making a loud noise. The narrowest part of the whole Canyon is only two or three meters, and the widest part is only four or five meters. Looking up, the narrow walls on both sides penetrate into the clouds, dividing the blue sky into a long ribbon. When Panlong Gorge is formed, one side of the gorge wall is concave, the other side of the gorge wall is protruding. The two sides of the gorge wall coincide with each other in the meandering and winding direction. It is straight, and the curve is twisting, spiraling forward and extending parallel. It can be inferred from this that a long time ago, here was a complete stone mountain, which was later affected by crustal movement and formed a peculiar Canyon after the fracture. But it seems that there is no trace of "axe chisel" and it is amazing the wonder of nature's creation.

The peak of unique beauty

This peak is proud to stand out alone, one peak is unique and beautiful, the peaks are crowded, clouds and mists are shrouded in cloudy and rainy days, if hidden, there is the charm of immortal mountain in the sea and in the empty yarn. On sunny days, it is steep and elegant, beautiful, not lack of fortitude, like a secluded fairy, cold-eyed watching the vicissitudes of the world, even though the heavens and the earth cycle, and the stars move, he is still thinking and silent. Xie Hui, a poet of the Qing Dynasty, once wrote a poem chanting solo and beautiful peaks: "It's winter, cold and then Zhisong. Jackie Chan does not associate with other people, and his bones are clear and elegant.

Five waterfall Gorge

It is named for five waterfalls in the gorge. The gorge is 1800 meters long and the narrowest is 5-6 meters. The water in the river is deafening. The cool wind rushes over the gorge. The cliff is covered by ancient pine trees. The waterfall falls down and splashes on the rocky cliff. The water mist caused by the wind is fantastic and beautiful. Here, there are drops of love of the Pearl Waterfall, there is a curtain of dreams of the water curtain waterfall. Every noon or so, when the sun shines into the Shixia Gorge and the water is foggy, there are two rainbows lying across the river, called "double rainbow sleeping waves" magical and spectacular, amazing.

Ju Xian Tai

Here is a huge stone, flat stone, can sit several people, surrounded by open terrain. Beautiful scenery, streams flowing through the boulders, it is said that there is a man in Emei Mountain, Sichuan, who travels all over the country, through Guan'e Gou, and is attracted by the charming scenery. So he chose this place to gather wise men to discuss Tao, to comprehend and practice, and ultimately to achieve positive results.

Library wall

Not far from Juxiantai, there is a canyon area with smooth and orderly stone walls and uniform layers of overlapping shale. The layers of shale are wavy. With the change of years, it looks like many books. Legend has it that Juxiantai Lao Taoism became immortal, and the book of heaven hidden in it turned into a miracle stone.

Plain waterfall

Near the Nine Days Falls, near the shade of the mountain, a stream of spring water cascades down from the beautiful peak, making a pleasant sound. Visitors can stop and watch the scenery under the spring. Because of the rapid flow of spring water, green grass and safflower all around, the waterfall is white and pure. Nearly, it looks like a white, fluttering ribbon, flying down in the air, and in the distance, it looks like a natural Hada to welcome visitors from all over the world. It is delightful and relaxing for tourists.

Deer rise

The Sulian Waterfall goes northward with a stripped and yellowed tree stump. Its graceful posture and unique shape make the visitors'eyes bright. As a philosopher said, life is not a lack of beauty, but a lack of discovery. Half of the tree forms a deer's head. The antlers are long and slender. The deer's head is raised and gazed at the sky. The two dead branches in the middle of the stump stretch forward, and the whole stump looks like a Sika Deer rising from the sky. We have to sigh that nature is a God-made worker.

The nine day falls

Distinguished visitors, just now we have enjoyed the magnificent Shibi Tianhe River, and will soon see the charming Baishishan Mountain. When the peak turns around, a waterfall suddenly falls from the sky, like a silver dragon flying down from the sky, flickering, swaying and free. Looking closely at this waterfall, it falls from the top of a cliff dozens of feet high. Since ancient times, only water has flowed to the lower part. There is no water in the ditches on both sides of the cliff, but there is a waterfall on the top of the cliff. It is really "water flows to the higher part". With the gentle breeze, it is drifting and sprinkled, elegant and vigorous, giving people unlimited association, "flying down three thousand feet, like the Milky Way falling nine days" is its vivid portrayal. White waterfalls hit rocks with sharp edges and corners, splashing strings of glittering pearls and flying away in all directions. The road trickles down into white dragons, winding around the rocks. Among the numerous waterfalls in Guan'e Valley, the Nine-day Fallfall is unique because of its flying overhead.

Ladder cliff

Ladder Cliff is one of the scenic spots of Miaogou. Into the temple ditch, from a distance, the first thing you can see is a huge dark door, like a natural mountain gate open to people, fir stands on the rocky hill, green and upright, like soldiers guarding the mountain gate. Entering the mountain gate, the mountain opens quietly and moves along the road. The mountain becomes narrower and narrower, forming the potential of locking throat. The two hills rise to the clouds, and there is a huge "general platform" in the middle, which is broad and huge, blocking the way into the ditch. This platform is divided into three parts, left, middle and right. The middle part is smooth and wet. A turbulent flow rushes down from the top of the platform and runs out vertically from the right side. It falls into the pool in three levels. It raises layers of waves, splashes, loud noises, powerful sounds and rumbles. Ding Qing looks closely at the left side of the platform, which seems to have nowhere to climb, but next to the mountains there are a series of stone marks, just like a pair of delicate stone ladders wrapped around the platform, only one person can climb up carefully by the platform. This kind of terrace in this gorge is connected by more than a dozen, step up, it can be said to be skillfully designed, the layout is exquisite, the local people call it ladder cliff.
