Tianmen cave's Five Miracles

HOT Yongding District 2012/07/28 View:2678

In zhangjiajie nationalforest park, thepeakofTianMenmountain, there is a huge cave, this is the world-famous Tianmen cave. In 1999, the pilots fromRussia,United States,Hungary,kazakhstan, theCzech republicandLithuaniapassed through it, creating a new list in Guinness Book of World Records. This hole has the odd characteristics.

First of all, majestic and tall appearence. The cave is 131.1 meters tall, 30 meters wide, 37 m deep , which can accommodate 300 people. In other words, it can build a buiding with 16 floor height. In qing dynasty, LiJin stood at the yongding city ,seeing the moon was swallowed half by the cave.

Secondly, open and bright feeling. Before and after TianMen mountains, are very low. But the mountain stand brightly. A hole is very empty just like the peaceful water. It only accompanies with the spotless blue sky in addition to the white clouds. As a result, it provides good conditions to 1999 years of the plane through this hole.

Thirdly, the rainy day of plum flower. No arrival, no man would believe cliff, a day to night, all the year round, a ticking, landing “plum rain”. It is said that, as long as open to pick up 48 drops, one can become immortal. Here comes a question: where does the plum flower rain come from? It is a mystery, which attracts quite a few scholars and scientists to explore.

What is more, bamboo hangs upside down. South eaves of the cave, was covered by green and not tall green bamboo. The root as QiuLong, the leaves like willow clusters, the rows of droop like shade. Screaming with the wind, it commonly known as the LongZhu.

The last but not the least, changeable. At TianMen cave, when it is a sunny day, a small cloud with mist wipes weakly. It does not seem to a big trouble. However , if meet the rainy weather, crazy cloud and angry fog chat with the blows of rock. The terrible sound wisphers, the cold wind blows up, which like the dragon jumping and celvin dancing. All of this give a horrible feeling. If meet the sun just after raining, cloud and mist seal, TianMen hides invisiblily, even cannot measure the right direction.

With five miracles, they give booming and vigorous vitality to the mountain. If TianMen mountain is the soul of the wuling mountains. Anyway, we cannot deny the fact that the TianMen cave is the soul of TianMen mountain.
