The rock is formed by the erosion of fractured granite body by long-term downward shear of water. There is another moving legend about Yuanbaotan.

So far, Yuanbao is still in the pool, becoming a beautiful scenery of Thrushcross Valley tourism.

Rhododendron Lake

Rhododendron Lake is the largest lake in Thrushcross Valley. It is named "Rhododendron Lake" because of the numerous rhododendrons growing on both sides of the mountain.

The design dam is 40 meters high and has a storage capacity of 10,000 cubic meters. Construction started in August 1973. Because of the long mountain and water route and lack of transportation and construction equipment, the cement used is all shoulder-to-shoulder, and more than 100,000 projects have been put into operation, which took six years to complete.

The Rhododendron Lake is like a sparkling pearl in Thrushcross Valley, which contrasts with the dangerous mountain peaks and the blue sky and water in the valley.

The boat is a recreational project in the Rhododendron Lake. In the boat lake, the charm is leisurely.

Holy hand water purification

The water purification of the god's hand is a natural wonder in Thrushcross Valley.

In the riverbed, there is a huge hand-shaped stone, five-pointed, legendary for the town god's big hand. If there is a flood on the mountain, it is muddy and unclear. If it overflows from the hands, the water will become clear and transparent. It is said that some treasure robbers fled to the Yuanbaotan in Yindong and Zhenshan God reached out with one finger. The treasure robbers were fixed there, and the Yuanbao will remain in the Yuanbaotan forever.

With favourable terrain, the dam of the Rhododendron Lake was built in 1980, forming a magnificent artificial waterfall landscape.

Lower Shimen

The second general of Ha-Ha is located at Xiashimen. The two huge stones are like the second general of Ha-Ha who holds the door. Legend has it that he is a special gate-keeper appointed by the God of Zhenshan to prevent thieves from entering and leaving the upper gate and not leaving the lower gate. Because there are treasure robbers out of this door, the God of town and mountain punished them to become stones, always stationed here.
