Huoshan is a granite rock hill, formed by the condensation of crustal magma activity, with strange holes and rocks after thousands of years of wind and rain erosion.

The gate of Huoshan scenic area is known as “First South Gate”, founded in August 1998, and completed in 1999.

It is said that one of great Song poets Su Dongpo had toured here and composed a poem as on the tablet.

The ticket is RMB 30, and we climb the mountain along this road, when all of us were out of breath, we came to the attraction.

According to legend, in ancient times, there was no mountain, but when the Sky Goddess mend the sky, there was some mortar left, so she scattered into the mortal world, then became Huoshan.

If want to shot the wonders of the mountain, you have to climb to the so called Denggaogang, also known as Suanni Peak. If there happen to be cloud, you will feel as if in the fairyland.

On the half way up to the Suanni Peak, we saw the tourists were as small as ants.
