Cang Mountain in Dali The mountain contains nineteen high steep peaks going one after another. The accumulated snow on the peaks never fall. The streams between the peaks pour water down. Eventually enter the Ear lake and keep its water level. The cold pines in Cang mountain live in precipices. They are gentlemen among trees who dance in cold weather. There are camellias, magnolias and azaleas in the mountain. They compete for beauty and cluster around together. There are also pheasants, bharals and non descripts. Who is the king among the thousands of birds and ten thousands of beasts in the mountain? There are suspension bridges and arched bridges across the Clear-Blue stream. The water strikes rubbles and makes the sound of beating ten-thousands drums. There is a clear blue radiant lake called Seven Fairies. How many writers have been trying to describe her beauty? There is a high mountain road that looks like a white-jade belt with clouds wreathed in mist. Tourists are happy to walk on such an immortal road. Remark.

Ge Garden


Ge Garden It is located in the northeast corner of the ancient city Yangzhou. I was designed based on the theory of Chinese landscape painting. The varieties of bamboos in the garden are as many as stars and the bamboo forests follow closely one after another. The hills of four seasons were piled up by snail stones, Taihu stones, yellow stones and Xuan stones. A seven-room long building goes around the summer and autumn hills. A season-transitional path looks marvelous. A queer Taihu rock is standing in the middle of a small curved clean lake. Nearby there is a sedate pavilion called Qing Yi. In the book rooms of the mansion on an exquisite hill , famous Chinese paintings, books and calligraphies are quite complete. In the Autumn-Stop Mansion at the peak of the Autumn Hill, a poem on Chinese plum and rain was written by the famous ancient artist Banqiao Zheng . There is a three-room hall with surrounding windows facing east open area. It was the guest hall and good place for playing Qin and Se two plucked musical instruments. A curved corridor with a little pavilion is a place for one to search for good sentences. The setting sun shines sideways on bamboos and as a result, innumerous Chinese word “Ge” appear on the ground. Remark.
