The flowers are hanging under the green leaves, contending in beauty, dancing in the breeze, they are vivid as living lobsters.
Another great mountain is Tianzi Mountain, Tianzi means emperor, so it means that it is the mountain of mountains. The fog and mist among the mountain always praised by tourists.
