A V-shaped valley 20 to 60 meters in depth stretches about 12 kilometers here at the Yufu River Gorge. As it gathers streams from all directions, the smooth surface of the rocky current becomes a picturesque masterpiece created by the power of nature. This natural beauty has led to it being referred to as the "Tyrol of Asia." The region attracts many visitors who are in search of the natural beauty of spring greenery, autumn foliage, as well as cool and soothing tranquility.
The best vantage point here is on the suspension bridge over the gorge.
