Qingshan Ravine Overview
Qingshan Mountain, Rushing-Waterfall Abyss, and Hutang Ravine constitute an exquisite picture of landscape. There are 126 scenic spots including 36 large and small waterfalls, and they display perfect natural scenery featuring mountains and waters. According to the investigation of Chinese horticulture experts, the scenic area is endowed with the richest natural tourist resources in North China, even all over the country at large. In terms of ravine scenery, there is a popular saying: The landscape of Jiuzhai Ravine tops West China and that of Qingshan Ravine tops East China. Thanks to the clear distinction among seasons, scenery here is quite unique and impressive. Now Qingshan Ravine Scenic Area has been provincially designated as a famous place of interests.
Located in the southeastern part of the scenic area, Qingshan Lake extends for about 50 kilometers in length and 30 to 50 meters in depth. Tourists can take a boat at the mouth of Qingshan Lake and move north along Dingxiang Cliff at the river bank. While rafting on the lake, tourists will appreciate the Huaxian Platform accompanied by colorful flowers, the fishing site, the Baiyun Peak cuddled by clouds and mists, the Wangfu Step with a beautiful myth, the ancient pine of over 1000 years, the deep Great Valley, and the fantastic Ice Scenery in summer time. Moreover, the scenic area is also famous for Taoism. For instance, there are Baxian (means eight immortals) Platform and Shengwang (means the king of gen-seng) Peak in the east, Quxian (means immortals all meet together here) Platform hidden in the luxuriant forest, Luming (means a singing deer) Spring, Feiyun Waterfall, Steles of Taoist Disciples, as well as Immortal Rock and Wulong (means five dragons) Spring in the south.
In the Rushing-Waterfall Abyss Scenic Area, Qingshan Rushing Waterfall is the largest waterfall in Liaoning Province. It runs down from the 32-meter high cliff, like a silver river with grandness beyond expression. There are Fairy Pool, Little Stone Road, and Zhenshui (means controlling the water in order) Rock in the lower stream of the waterfall. Climbing up on steps, tourists will reach Guanpu Pavilion where the beautiful scenery of the waterfall and villages nearby can be fully appreciated.
