Lover Bridge

According to folklore, a long time ago, there lived a group of ape monkeys in Ape King Cave. Ape King led them to forage wild fruits and resist wild animals. At night, they rested in the cave and lived a comfortable life. Legend has it that Fairies in the sky also admire the beautiful scenery here and often play here. The ape king loved fairies, climbed vines, swam across the deep stream, and waited for them. Later, the ape king and the fairy finally became lovers and formed a lasting union. The pure love between the ape king and the fairy finally touched the Jade Emperor, and turned the ape king into a fairy, so that he and the fairy could live in heaven forever. Later, people built the Feixian Pavilion in the place where the ape king went to heaven. In order to commemorate the love between the ape king and the fairy, it was also called the Phoenix Pavilion. In the place where the ape King climbed the rattan, a "lover bridge" was built. Some poems praised that "the ancient rattan cares about the jade lady obliquely, the flying stream crosses the Xuanape crossing the cross hook".
