History of development
The name of nine peaks is derived from nine peaks. According to the annals of Peng County written by Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty: "in the hundred and sixty li northwest of China, there are nine towering peaks, which are actually the crown of all the mountains in Pengyi, so they are named. What is the shape of Jiufeng? According to the records of Jiaqing, the nine peaks are white dragon, vermilion bird, flame and Tianya in the northeast, backlight in China and Japan, and Xianren, Huanglong, Yuanwu and Baihu peaks in the southwest. "
The nine peaks are surrounded by clouds and mist, and high into the sky. When the ancient Shu people did not know the relationship between the sun and the earth, they thought that the high and straight nine peaks blocked the way of the sun and the moon. They called the canyon between the nine peaks as the "Menggu" (the place where the sun sleeps). Some people who study the classic of mountains and seas say that Jiufengshan refers to the "Lingshan" in the western classic of great waste. Wupeng, Wuwei, Wuji, Wugu, Wuzhen, Wuli, Wudi, Wuxie, Wuluo and so on, went to the world from here. All kinds of drugs are growing here. When they go to the world, they should also collect some to treat people. Therefore, this mountain is also known as "Heaven ladder", "immortal road" and "fairyland on earth". It is also said that this mountain is a mountain where "climbing is the spirit", "climbing is the God", "climbing can not die", "climbing can make wind and rain", "producing immortal medicine". The scenic area covers an area of 180 square kilometers and is composed of flame peak, Baihu peak, Beiguang peak, Yuanwu peak, Xianren peak, Zhuque peak, Changnian peak, Tianya peak and Longfeng. Jiufeng Mountain is like a wall stretching across the sky. There are six mountain roads to climb Jiufeng Mountain. There are three main climbing roads: from cizhuwan to the top of ancestral hall, from Erxian bridge to the top, from Changheba to Longkou and longshiping. In the meantime, there are many rare animals, such as mountains, mountains and mountains.

Traces of ancient temples
Zhang Dingbian, a general of the Ming Dynasty, abandoned his army and became a monk. He built Leiyin temple on the top of the mountain in Tianqi year. In the Qing Dynasty, together with Yinghua and Tiantai, it was called Sanshan Buddhist area. The Haihui hall at the foot of the mountain is located 1 km above the Erxian bridge. There are more than 20 statues of Buddha, Avalokitesvara and eighteen Arhats in the Mahavira hall, with different shapes and lifelike shapes.
Mandarin duck double waterfall
Located 1 km up the haihuitang, there are two waterfalls. The smaller one is hidden in the Bush, and the larger one is flying down the cliff, splashing with water.
There is a rock like crab in the pool under the waterfall, commonly known as crab pond. The pond water is clear to the bottom, and its color is like jadeite, so it is also known as jadeite pool. At the mouth of the pond, there are many strange stones and thousands of postures.
Sea of azalea and flowers
At the top of the ancestral hall, azaleas, qingminghua, Dengtai flower, hydrangea, golden marble, water and sand, centipede climbing on the ground, and Phyllanthus are competing for each other. In the early summer, rhododendrons have opened up in succession. There are more than 10 colors, such as white, yellow, red and light blue.
From Luohan cave to the top, the yellow brown and red granite peaks stand tall, and the grotesque rocks are towering, more than 10 meters high and more than 5 meters short. Some of them are like large-scale landscape bonsai, others are human like and animal like, with different shapes. Panda stone, Yangzi stone, rooster stone, Wangfu stone, immortal finger, thousand Buddha rock and so on are all vivid and realistic. Every time when the mist is flowing or the clouds are thick, the strange rocks appear and disappear from time to time.
The Nantianmen gate, 1 li away from the peak, is the only access to the Leiyin temple. The terrain of the crossing is very dangerous. Looking up at the peak, the sky is covered with clouds and fog, and the overhanging rocks are steep and the cliffs are thousands of Ren. There is a trend that "one man is in charge and ten thousand people are not allowed to open". The hexagonal wooden pavilion built in the Qing Dynasty still exists between the two mountains and rocks of Daokou.

Post earthquake impact
After the 5.12 Wenchuan earthquake in the scenic area, landslides were serious. The road from the ancestral hall to Guanyinyan is seriously damaged, and it needs to pass through five large landslides. Each landslide has a guide sign left by a donkey friend (red cloth belt or plastic bag, etc.) and the collapse between the road and the road is not long (the longest one out of the ancestral hall is the longest), so it is generally not lost. Guanyinyan is still in good condition. There are all kinds of daily necessities in it. There are masters who live there in summer and autumn. The road from Guanyinyan to leiyinsi was the least damaged, almost the original road, with only two landslides (very short, with road signs). Jinding Leiyin temple has collapsed. Under the eaves of the collapsed house, there is a bed and several quilts to keep out the cold at night.
