Scenic attractions of the park generally focus on the four hills: Unicorn, Phoenix, Turtle and Snake. Unicorn Hill is the largest peak of the four. It resembles the shape of a prancing unicorn. On the top of the hill, stones of various shapes stand upright like the horn of the unicorn. The Yitianting pavilion is located at the summit, pointing up to the sky and providing a panoramic view of the park.

The water of the Huaxi River (Flower River) is clear and clean and flowers bloom all year round in the park. Boats are available in the park for visitors to rent. A boat tour offers views of beautiful landscapes along the river. Visitors can also relax at pavilions or terraces under the shade of trees and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of rurality.

The park is an ideal tourist destination all year round. Crystal-clear streams run like a mirror, bouquets of flowers and peaceful serenity comprise a feast for the visitor’s eyes. It is considered the “pearl of the Central Guizhou”.
