The Qishu Garden is quaint and quiet. The refreshing air in the forest is clear and lingering. The wonderful and picturesque waterfalls attract a lot of people all the year round. Among the green mountains, people could marvel at the supernatural craftsmanship of nature and its wonders.
Sandiejing refers to three pools in the park. Yanjing Pool has a small drop, which sound of the rushing water is clear and ringing. The Weng Pool looks like a natural stone cave, deep and mysterious. Longtan Pool is a newly-developed scenic spot in the park. The water crosses the mountains and forms the deep pool. Longtan Pool is like a white dragon surrounded by steep cliffs, which has a vertical drop of 40 to 50 meters, rushing out of the mountain straightly.
There is a man-made stone path, with a slope of nearly 60 degrees, namely the Sky Ladder. The Sky Ladder is steepest place in the park. It has 322 steps. At the top of the ladder, there is a relatively flat platform for people to rest and appreciate the scenery.
Qingyin Waterfall is very interesting that people can hear the sound but can't see the waterfall. The water is gurgling and the sound of the waterfall is ringing.
The huge rock on the side of the Elephant Trunk Waterfall looks like an elephant trunk. There is a hole on the side of the rock, looking like an elephant’s eye. The waterfall stretches from the top of the high cliff to the bottom of the pool.
