Introduction to Paoma Mountain Scenic Area (跑马山景区)

The most attractive highlight of Paoma Mountain Scenic Area is Five-color Lake, which is 4,100 meters above the sea level. It is the remnants of glaciations, covering an area of 110 square meters. Around the lake there are precipitous cliffs. The lake is as clear as a mirror. In the morning, the color of the lake is changeable under the sunlight when sun glows and the waterfall is reflected on the lake.

On the south slope of Paoma Mountain stands the Yongxue Pavilion, which is hiding in the green woods. When winter turns to spring, you can step to the top of the pavilion, lean on the baluster and take a bird’s view. The mountains and hills on the southwest are all covered with snow, which will give you great inspiration to write a poem to appreciate the snow.

On the west side of the Paoma Mountain is the Jixiang Temple , surrounded by thick vegetations and flowers. Located on the jade stone steps, the temple is resplendent and magnificent. Stepping into the hall, you can see the statue of Tathagata Buddha sitting there. Walking out of the temple, you will see the Lingyun Pagoda , which is more than 20 meters high, erecting to the sky. There are always clouds hung over the pagoda, adding some mystery to it.
