Shirenshan Scenic Area, a section of the east

Funiu
Mountains, is located at the west of the Lushan County of Pingdingshan City. Shirenshan was once named “
Mount
Yao” by ancient people after the Memorial Temple of Emperor Yao built by Liu Lei, a descendant of

Yao, as the origin of Liu families.




Yuhuangding, the peak, is 2,153.1 meters above the sea level. Composed of ten parts of fancy peaks, hot-springs, dense forests, numerous waterfalls and mysterious caves, Shirenshan scenic area is an ideal place for sightseeing, summer holidays, health-restoring, science research and adventures. It is the combination of the precipitous appeal of
Huashan
Mountain, the steepness of the
Emei
Mountain, the beauty of Zhangjiajie and the elegance of the

Huangshan
Mountain.











Shirenshan Scenic Area is a marvelous collection of various sceneries, boasting steep peaks, fancy rocks, wild flowers, red leaves, rushing waterfalls,

hot springs, lakes, sea of clouds, virgin forests, rare animals and many historical sites. There are 17 waterfalls here with a fall between 60 and 200 meters besides more than 40 natural pillars and lots of other sights scattering all over the area.

Lying on the boundary between the subtropical zone and the warm temperate zone, Shirenshan is abundant in wildlife resources.











Sights of Shirenshan in four seasons are of great beauty but in different style. When spring comes, Shirenshan is a world of twittering birds, fragrant flowers, green trees and singing streams. The autumn dyes all the woods red over the mountains. Then, the snow in winters turns them into a sea of pure white waves.




The early summer brings overdue flowers to the mountains. While the central plain area is burning with an averages temperature of 35
-38


in midsummer, it is only 23
-26



here, cool and comfortable.


With mountains rising as steep as walls, peaks standing like grotesque statues, fantastic stones scattering everywhere, the scenery of Shirenshan is distinctive. Standing on the

peak of
Yuhuangding, visitors will be impressed by the splendid view of the beautiful picture of mountains stretching afar to the end of the horizon.











The most impressive sceneries are the springs, brooks, waterfalls and pools. The brooks in the

Shiren
Mountain are changeful with vitality. Hundreds of springs, like fairies in the mountain, flow into limpid brooks, changing into waterfalls. The water constantly dripping wears holes in stones and the holes develop into pools. There are Black Dragon Pool, White Dragon Pool, etc hiding in the valleys and forests. Among all the waterfalls, the White Dragon waterfall is most magnificent. The water directly falls from the top of the hill like a dragon flying down with the sound like a tiger roaring. At the bottom, the beads of water float gently down to the surface of the pool. In the air, the mist is mixed with clouds and water sprays.











The waters make up a painting of landscape while the stones form a poem of landscape. As the

Shiren
Mountain is composed of granite, its ridges become deformed because of the fissuring of granite under millions of years carving of nature. Stone peaks standing in great numbers and perilous cliffs accumulating layer upon layer characterize the scenery of granite forests. There are nearly one hundred peaks with a height of 2000 meters above sea level. Looking around in the distance, the peaks hide in the clouds and smokes while a close look they have the magnificence of the palaces of the Qin and Han Dynasties. The scenic spots have various styles: the spectacular Thousand Feet Cliff, the elegant Phoenix Stage, the smooth
Sister
Peaks and the vigorous

White
Cow
City.

The pine trees in the

Shiren
Mountain are quite unique due to special weathers and high altitude. The roots or trunks of some are complicatedly entwined together, revealing the emerald green leaves; the roots of others are extremely similar to fingers of dragons as the result of gradually breaking through the rocks; some in the distance look like certain Chinese characters while on the whole they form a landscape painting. Thus, they are well entitled the name of “Fancy Pines”.




It is waters that make the mountain seem more beautiful. The

Shiren
Mountain boasts numerous marvelous waterfalls and streams. Limpid streams of the Black Dragon Pool, the White Dragon Pool and the Eastern Dragon Pool flow down the mountain: Some are like tigers roaring in the valley; some are like gentle ladies, flowing quietly.




The most marvelous roadway on the

Shiren
Mountain is the sliding channel, which is over 2,000 meters long, zigzagging down the mountain in the thick forests. The tourists can enjoy the sliding and experience once more the past happiness in childhood.

Shifeng (Stone Phoenix) Ropeway, 999 meters long and vertically 341 meters tall, moves from the

Shiren
Valley to the south of Fenghuangtai. The ropeway has 70 hanging cable cars which can carry 320 visitors per hour. The ropeway not only relieves the tourists’ tiredness of climbing mountains but also adds to the scenery like lanterns in Chinese Festivals. As for the

General
Peak, you can reach it by climbing steps from the Red Maple Valley to the Silver Thread Waterfall and then take the ropeway. By the ropeway, you can enjoy red maples, watching life-like stone monkeys. When reaching the

Yuhuang
Peak, you will be intoxicated with the sea of clouds.

Thanks to the superior
geographical conditions, the

Shiren
Mountain is very abundant in resources of plants and animals. According to the preliminary surveys, the

Shiren
Mountain possesses 1,211 species of seed plants, plus epirhizous plants and ferns. The entire plants species amount to over 4,000, among which over 40 have been listed as plants under state and provincial protection. In the scenic area, there are large expanses of virgin forests, rare ancient forests of azaleas trees and so on. All together, the total number of ancient trees over one thousand years amount to 150,000. As the plants have provided a good habitat for the rare birds and beasts, there are over 125 terrestrial vertebrate animal species, large numbers of aquatic animals and invertebrate animals in the area. Walking in the area, you can see squirrels skipping around everywhere, birds chirping in the forests, monkeys climbing up trees. All this will make you have the feeling that you are walking in a natural zoo.


Having feasted your eyes on the natural scenery in wonderland, you can relax by immersing in the

hot springs of the scenic area. Along the
Sand
River
Valley at the foot of the
Shiren
Mountain, there are five groups of

hot springs. The temperature of the springs can reach as high as 60 degrees centigrade. With more than 20 kinds of microelements, the

hot springs have very good medical values. What’s more, the scenic area of the
Shiren
Mountain is dotted with other scenic spots, including a folk custom valley, a
temple of
Confucius, a Mountain Villa, and the largest aeronautic exhibition center in
Asia.
