The Goddess Peak

Goddess Peak is also called Yunufeng among the people. Legend has it that three of the seven fairies are incarnated here for their nostalgia and companionship with the old Buddha.

Funiu Mountain God

On the north side of the Goddess Peak in Laojieling, there is a tall and erect stone peak, which resembles the statue of Laojun. From the front, the eyes, nose, mouth and outline are clear and vivid. Because it stands high beside the tip of the main peak of Mount Funiu, people are accustomed to call it the God of Mount Funiu.

Legend has it that Lao Tzu chose the first fairyland habitat after he became a fairy in Lao Jun Cave. Because the fairy body was heavy and he only stepped down, the mountain sloped southward. But Lao Tzu flew up and went west in diameter to settle down in Jingshi Mountain, which was renamed Laojun Mountain. In this way, although Lao Tzu was in Laojun Mountain, his heart was still at the tip of Qijiao. Under his mind, Lao Tzu turned his soul into a cloud of smoke and floated straight to the Old World Ridge. He fell quietly at the Goddess Peak not far from the tip of Xiaojiao. From then on, Lao Tzu became a tall and big goddess and lived in peace forever. After hundreds of years, through Cangsang, it stands tall guarding the Funiu Mountain, protecting the peace and well-being of the 800-li Funiu Mountain.

Corner tip

At 2212.5 meters above sea level, it is the highest peak in the Central Plains. Looking down at the mountains, he runs forward like a leading cattle, never turning back. On sunny days, the sharp edges of the valley are blue-purple, clear and magnificent. Clouds and mists are shrouded in clouds and rains, and sometimes disappear and appear. The scenery is extraordinarily spectacular.

Lover peak

Looking ahead, the two adjacent peaks are mostly like a couple of "couples who are in love with each other" and also like "couples who are in love with each other". Valentine's Peak is not only a magnificent and enchanting peak, but also a symbol of love that human beings pursue true love and accompany with old age.
