Three Tier SpringThree-fold Spring Scenic Area are in the east of the Five Elder Peaks of the Lushan Mountain, at the lower source of the Qinglian Valley, 29 kilometers away from Jiujiang City. The scenic spot features splendid waterfalls and gorgeous peaks. It was discovered by a woodcutter in Song Dynasty. It was established in early 1980s as a tourist attraction. In November, 2011,it was listed as National Forest Park.

The scenic area occupies an area of 16.5 square kilometers with high peaks and deep valleys. The landform was caused by earth subsidence and lifting. The forest coverage amount to 89.9%.More than 2,000 plants and wild animals are found there.

Three-fold Spring is also called three-stage spring or curtain spring. It is known as first wonder of Mt. Lushan.It was discovered by a woodcutter in the Song Dynasty. Three-Fold Spring Falls run along the three-tier cliff, divided into three steps to form waterfalls, with a fall of 155 meters. The scenery of Three-Fold Spring Falls change with seasons and the amount of rainfall. Originating in Dayue Mountain, the spring angles around the backside of Wulaofen (Peak of Five Old Men) and pours into Jiudiego (Nine Tier Gully), crashing twice upon huge rocks, and then converge into a torrent, and drops once again, splashing and throwing about millions of water beads. Driven by the gully wind, the tiny drops dance in the misty air. They sparkle in the sunlight and fall like countless dazzling pearls.

The Three-step cascading falls is the most outstanding water attraction. One of famous saying goes "if there is no Three-Step Falls, Mt. Lushan is not worth visiting". The other saying goes that "a visit to Lushan doesn't count if you don't see the Three-stage Spring.” The beauty of the thunderous fall was a favorite subject for many ancient poets and scholars.
