The Shijing Mountain is famous for exotic stone landscapes. It is originally named “the mountain of Xiniuwangyue (the rhinoceros looking up at the Moon)” since there is a giant rock that looks like the horn, the nose and the mouth of a rhinoceros on the mountain top and the mountain has a shape of the body of a rhinoceros. Seen at a far distance, it looks like a rhinoceros raises its head and looks up at the moon. The exotic rocks all over the mountain crest and fall like waves on an open sea and strew at random in an orderly way; the starting part of the landscape is like a galloping horse while the ending part is like rivers returning to the sea; with a careful taste, it is like a natural picture of a hundred beasts. For this reason, it is later changed to the name of Shijing Mountain. Climbing up the mountain and overlooking, you will see the boundless waters, the dotted island, the beautiful bay, the prosperous city right before your eyes. The scenic area is a garden-style seashore city, the most characteristic and charming landscape of Zhuhai City.
Shijing Mountain Ropeway
Situated at the foot of the meandering and luxuriant Shijing Mountain (also called the mountain of Xiniuwangyue (the rhinoceros looking up at the Moon)), the Shijing Mountain Ropeways is the appointed program of the one-day tour, the two-day tour and the three-day tour around the Zhuhai City. According to the legend, more than one hundred years ago, a businessman invited a geomantic master to choose a “lucky field” for them to invoke prosperity in the future. When they “chased the dragon” to the mountain, they found a peak in the remote regions by the sea like a rhinoceros raising the head and looking up at the Moon. The smooth-tongued geomantic master said: “as long as you stand on the mountain and face the sea making sincere wishes, and do good deeds, you will sure make a success.” A few years later, lucky in making money, the businessman had a flourishing business and became a very successful man as the master said. Now the Shijing Mountain Ropeways, embedded in this treasure land where a ghost shows its power, lies at the back of the mountain and faces the sea, having an air of being independent and ascending to heaven and become immortal. It covers an area of more then 6000 square meters with a magnificent scale and an extraordinary vigor.
