Last updated by joyce at 2017/5/15

Langmu Temple is called the tiger cave and the fairy in Tibetan. People must be wondering how the tiger cave and the fairy were tied together. It was said that there was a fierce tiger in the cave of the canyon on the southeastern bank of Bailong River. And there was also a stalactite which is the spitting image of a slim fairy. So it is said a place where there is a fairy in the tiger cave. However, another story was going about that a beautiful girl who was kind, selfless and brave turned into a rock in the cave with the company of the tiger in order to prevent the tiger from doing harm to people.

The small town attracts tourists for it is quite different from other tourist towns. It is remarkable for its peaceful natural scenery and the poetical landscape. The town and the hills are wreathed in mist all the year round. The hills are always so mysterious, the valleys are so deep and quiet and the town is extremely tranquil and tender. People will feast their eyes on the charming scenery: bright mountain flowers in full bloom in spring, rich pastures and thriving herds in summer, frost falling on the field in autumn, the white apparel of winter.
