Zhongfeng Cave was first named Fuoguang Cave. It was renamed as Zhongfeng Cave just because of a special figure—the abdicated Emperor Jianwen of Ming Dynasty. During the 40 years when Emperor Jianwen was stranded in the Southwest area, had he really come to Zhongfeng Cave? The answer is complicated and confusing.
Zhongfeng Cave has 36 sub-caves, some of which are with high characteristics. One of them is very like a high-heeled shoe. When you stand in the cave and look outward, you will find the mouth of it just looks like a huge high-heeled shoe. Zhongfeng Cave is scenery of “Nuoshui Dong Tian”. Miraculous and marvelous ‘Nuoshui Dong Tian’, primitive, deep and serene ‘Li Gorge in Linjiang Township’ and colorful ‘Natural Basin in Kongshan Township’ join together, which constitute the famous Nuo Shuihe Scenic Spot at state level.
