Dragon pool can be seen from the beams, along the stone steps to the east, or from the Longwang Cave, climbing the rocks to the east. Longtan is deep and unfathomable. People tie ropes with stones, thread live fish, and divers wear diving suits, but they can not reach the end of it.

Longtan Gorge

Longtan Gorge is located at the top left of the Ya-shaped canyon, which is formed by internal and external forces and geological processes for hundreds of millions of years. The Canyon is 648 meters deep, 210 meters wide and 22.5 kilometers long. There are many landscapes in the canyon, such as Longtan Waterfall, Golden Hulu Waterfall, Natural Buddha, Turtle Stone and so on.

Golden Hulu Waterfall

Qingqing approached the foot of the cliff and gathered again. The white spray was flying in a circle and plunging into the bottom of the valley. At the exit of the waterfall, the space formed by the cliffs on both sides is like an inverted golden gourd, which is named "Golden Gourd Falls".

Longtan waterfall

The galloping water gushes out from the mountain mouth and falls directly to the bottom of the valley from the cliff nearly 20 meters high. The famous Longtan is just above the cliff, thus forming the "Longtan Waterfall".

Shi Lin Xia

Located at the top of the Ya-shaped Three Gorges Stone, it is named for the hills standing in the gorge and resembling stone forests. The stone forest, which is 8 kilometers long and 150 meters wide, is also one of the most beautiful scenery in the whole scenic area. The whole valley is surrounded by mountains, with water flowing around the mountains and towering peaks in succession. Within the canyon, you are attracted by the Antarctic Fairy Falls, Galaxy Splash, Bayao Xianchi, Jade Python Drilling Sky, Elephant Mountain, Lovers Peak and other landscapes.

Antarctic Celestial Falls

Antarctic Fairy Falls, climbing to the east side of the hillside, looking back, opposite the peak, the top of the projection of green and white rocks, like the front of the forehead of Antarctic Fairy. Eye, nose and mouth are all in shape, also known as "tumbler".

Eagle's nest Gorge

Yingwo Gorge is an extension of Longtan Gorge and Shilin Gorge, extending to Qinglong County, Hebei Province, with a total length of 12.5 kilometers, a width of 200 meters, and beautiful water and stone. Walking southward into the mountain gate and looking down on the cliff, there is a stone pillar, known as the "Forget Worry Peak", which is a huge rock that is difficult to climb. Below is the Wanzhang Cliff, while the cliff stretches out huge stones and connects with another cliff. It is really a "miracle of the world" created by nature.

Hongyan Gorge

Hongyan Gorge is a branch of Longtan Grand Canyon. In the southeast of Longtan Gorge, the stone in the canyon is red, and the leaves in autumn are red, so it is called "Hongyan Gorge". Hongyan Gorge has two branch canyons, "Hongyan Gorge" and "Qingyan Gorge". During the Anti-Japanese War, in 1942, our Party was the first grass-roots organization in Northeast China, the Great Yinggou Party Group. It is the political and military command center in the Redong region of Western Liaoning, the birthplace of revolutionary public opinion, and has the reputation of "Xiaoyan'an in Western Liaoning".

Foguang Luohan Cliff

The Luohanya cliff in Foguang is composed of dense medium-thick quartzite sandstone and loose thin argillaceous sandstone. Columnar joints are well developed in medium-thick quartzite sandstone layers, forming a column of vertical rock layers.

The spherical weathering of sandstone makes the pillars resemble the shape of Arhat, and the refraction of light makes hundreds of glittering Arhats arranged neatly on the cliff in four layers, forming a rare natural wonder.

Giant Fingerprints

Many ripple marks in Longtan Canyon are the layer traces formed by the sand sediments on the surface of the sediments in the course of migration under the action of water or wind, which are very similar to the waves of water.

Giant fingerprint is a typical interference ripple. It is named Giant fingerprint because of its texture, such as human fingerprint.

Shi Shangshu

Shishangtianshu is a landscape formed by different weathering. On the level of medium-thick quartz sandstone, there are often thin layers of argillaceous sandstone or argillaceous siltstone, which collapse and expose the surface. Under differential weathering, some of them are weathered and lost, and some of them remain to form various patterns. "One person, one stone" is the most typical pattern.

Fairy footprints

Longtan Gorge is a ten-mile long gorge with many scenic spots, changing scenery step by step, and its topography and physiognomy are very peculiar. Tens of millions of layers of purple-red quartz sandstone are deposited as if they were colorful; the annual rings of the earth can be seen everywhere on the rocks with the footprints of immortals.

Walking on corrugated stones is like walking on ancient ocean beaches; wandering in narrow, winding valleys, like wandering in the labyrinth of nature; colorful cliffs make people feel like they are in a mythical world.

Fairy bathing

Here is a clear shallow pool with a hazy fairy pattern on the surface of the upright rock beside it, as if it had just emerged from the pool.

One is the hieroglyphic pattern on a stone beneath the bamboo knot. Like a beautiful woman with beautiful hair, water can be seen.

This beef biscuit is also very distinctive. The pastry is steamed completely and its softness and hardness are just right. There is no extra rice flour in the filling, but it feels a little crisp. The original biscuit contains not only beef but also crisp meat particles. Because the soybean flour paste is easy to clear, it should be eaten while it is hot, and the ingredients should not be stirred vigorously. Otherwise, if you eat half of the paste, it will easily become clear soup, soaking powder and steamed meat, which will greatly reduce the taste.

Egg pie

Egg cakes, a traditional snack of the Han nationality in Xinyang, Henan Province, belong to Henan cuisine. Deeply loved by Zhongzhou residents. Pour the egg juice into the half-cooked cake, continue to fry and bake. The crust of the cake is crisp and fragrant.
