It’s also rare to see such enormous and miscellaneous karst caves here in the whole nation.In Mei River Scenic Zone, there are some rare, amazing scenic spots you can’t miss. Ten-mile Gallery, rare and unique geological and geomorphologic landscape, is of great scientific value. Fairy House is characterized by rare thin limestone and siliceous rock. What’s most inviting is bound to be the ceaseless Lotus Fountain under the Buddha’s Rock, which just sounds like boiling water. The most spectacular spot is undisputedly the Stone Pillar which is as tall as 16 meters and can only be hugged around by 12 persons. The next nature’s gift must be the Natural Bridge with four layers. Then, it comes to the most mysterious and miraculous spot that is the Mount Censer. There is a Waving Stone.

  • Hangzhou Su Causeway

    Hangzhou Su Causeway

    We visited Hangzhou on one of its hottest days on record,so activity was going to be hot. At least Sudi is 80% in the shade with numerous willows and other trees flanking the path. Not many people ride their bikes along here (At least when I went) and the yellow elongated golf carts are driven with care.From the map it seems very long. But worthwhile to walk across. Many local people walk there for exercise. Also very good view for the lake.It is actually a wide paved bridge across the West Lake. A good place for evening or morning stroll. Try not to go in the afternoon as it could get really hot. And try to go during the weekday as it could get quite congested with people on weekends.Translated by Sophia
