The water of the Big Western Waterfall (Xida Pu), the water of the Rainy Waterfall (Meiyu Pu); and the palm leaves remain green yet in front of the Stone-Beam Cave (Shiliang Dong).

The Wild Goose Hill is the "cradle of the Yandang Mountain". In the old days, there was a marsh on the top of the hill.

"The Sunrise at the Wild Goose Marsh" and "the Cloudy Wild Goose Marsh" are considered the best two scenic views here.
