Wuhai possesses rich tourist resources. There are 3 world-class tourist products. The first one is the cliff paintings complex in Zuozi Mountain. They are art treasures of the nomads in the north during the period from New Stone Age to Bronze Age. The cliff paintings are scattered widely and contain various subjects. And their quantities are very large and their styles are very simple. So they enjoy a high reputation in the field of cliff paintings at home and abroad. The second one is a state protective plant-Sihemu that is called “living fossil” by academic circles. The third one is a carboniferous siliceous wood that is called the largest one in Asia.
