Its main peak is 708 meters high and covers an area of 72 square meters, which is known as its unique peaks, precipitous rocks and ancient temples. It can be divided into four scenic sites according to the natural landform: the north part, the central part, the south part and the west part which are scattering in several valleys. It is a picturesque scenic resort with different sceneries in different seasons and combines temples and gardens in one mountain.

It has a long history and early in the Northern Wei Dynasty, the Buddhists had been here. In Liao and Jin Dynasty, Buddhism is more flourishing and the five famous Buddhist monasteries namely  Xiangyan Monastery, Da’an Monastery, Zuyue Monastery, Zhonghui Monastery, Dragon Spring Monastery had formed into an ancient building cluster in a certain scale. Since in Ming and Qing Dynasty, Taoism had reached its top and there were nine Palaces, eight Taoist temples and twelve Taoist nunneries here. More than 30 temples were built and hundreds of Buddhists and Taoists are living here. The first peak –Immortal Terrace lies in the southeast of Thousand Mountain with the stone statues of the Eight Immortals and stone chessboard on it. It is said that the Immortals flew here by sitting on the cranes and played chess here. Therefore people named this peak Immortal Terrace.
