The Yandangshan Mountain is one of the first national-level key scenic resorts and historic sites and one of the top famous mountains in China. The mountain acquired the name of bird as “there is a lake on the top of the mountain which are overgrown with reed and inhabited with autumn wild geese.

The Yandangshan Mountain came to being 120 million years ago. It is a typical ancient rhyolite volcano of the Cretaceous Period. The whole mountain covers a total area of 450 square kilometers. It has more than 550 scenic spots and is composed of eight large scenic areas, of which the Lingfeng Peak, the Lingyan Rock and Large Kettle Giant, where the pick of the basket assembles, are called “the top three sceneries of the Yandangshan Mountain”.

The Yandangshan Mountain has unique characteristics. “The view in the day time is a feast for the eyes and the night view attracts and delights you.” “You can view and admire the mountain landscape while savoring seafood.” “The view is shifty and changes when you move steps.” Those are the three features which differentiate itself from other famous mountains and rivers of China.
