Heaven of nature
In the scenic area, there are countless clear streams, endless throughout the year, which flow into the waterfalls.

Such a wonderful place hidden deeply between overlapping peaks and winding paths is a good choice to escape from the urban city and enjoy the fresh air in leisure.
On the hillside of the Tea Mountain, near the Yinkeng River, stands a historic Taoist building complex, Qingyun Cave. Qingyun Cave was built during the late Qing Dynasty. It is famous for its long history, magnificent momentum, beautiful environment, fine workmanship and delicate layout. Qingyun Cave is famous for its ponds and streams. The seven-meter-high waterfall forms a unique natural landscape.
The Green Pool is formed by a three-layer waterfall. It is the deepest pool in the Ecological Park. The pool water is clear under the shades of the lush trees. The rocks around the pool are steep and strange. In spring, the mountains are full of flowers with fragrance, forming the colorful natural scenery.
The Shuiyuan Pool was created by nature magically. The local people have been enjoying this fairy spring since the ancient times.
