Shigongshan Hill,located in southeast corner of the Western Hills, is 49.8 m high. It got its name “Shigong” (old stone man) because it looks like an old man.
Cypress trees in Shigong Hill form a luxuriant evergreen wood. In Shigong Hill, beautiful mountain and water, secluded ravines and sparkling mountain streams, spectacular buildings and cultural relics together creat a clear and pretty landscape with endless interest. Shigongshan Hill has picturesque rocks, special stones, spectacular caves and marvelous sceneries. A seldom-seen spectacle is the lake lit by both moon and sun.  On the night of the 13th day of the ninth month of the lunar calendar, you can see the sun setting on the water, and the moon rising on the lake.
 
Historically, Shigongshan Hill was a well-known tourist attraction. Since the Spring and Autumn Period, a number of tourists and celebrities have been there to admire it.
