Seen from the heights, row upon row, cluster after cluster, of various spectacular stone formations; roll out like a turbulent sea of forests with tremendous tidal waves, as if whipped up by bolts out of the blue. One feels as if staying in a fairyland enclosed by stone forests.
Exquisite Lakes, Waterfalls and Streams: Here the springs and streams are numerous, and the waters, are abundant and free from any pollution. The Jinbianxi Stream and the Suoxi Stream serpentine across Wuling Yuan from west to east. Over 50 rivulets from its west to East End, drop from high, down to the floor of the canyon, splashing with pearl-like gleaming sprays. These waterfalls hang like curtains woven with strings of glossy beads. Baofeng Lake and Huangling Spring are among its famous scenic spots.
