With a 587-meter-high peak and more than 10 reservoirs surrounding, the picturesque Yangtai Mount has been enjoying the reputation as one of the Top Eight Sceneries in Shenzhen and the popularity among the tourists from near and far. Not matter it is sunny or rainy, Yangtai Mount will provide you a feast of eyes with the gorgeous and beautiful landscapes.
Falls flying around the Yangtai Mount like silver scarves are one of the most attractive parts, which make the peaceful mountain alive. Go along the winding stream from the foot of the hill for about 1 kilometer, you may be surprised by the sounds made by the rushing falls from the 10-meter cliff. At the sight of the white sprays splashing from the bottom of the falls, you will feel released and exciting. Gorgeous falls together with the flourishing trees, blooming flowers and chirping birds provide a harmonious fairyland for people to take relaxations and do exercise.
On Double Ninth Festival, the traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the ninth day of the ninth month in the Chinese lunar calendar, the Yangtai Mountain is a customary place for local people to climb mountains, appreciate chrysanthemum flowers, drink chrysanthemum wine, and eat double-ninth cakes. This tradition can be dated back as early as the Warring States Period (475 BC-221 BC).
The lush green valley is particularly beautiful on rainy days, when a slight layer of clouds will veil on the mountains, which makes Yangtai Mount more mysterious and charming. No wonder so many celebrities came here to devote themselves to great achievements.
