He had once help Da Yu govern the Chang Jiang River, the Yellow River, Huai He River and Ji He rivers.

Among the pools. there are many other scenes: Huang Long Cave, the biggest calcareous cave in China; Jinshapudi, a rare calcareous fluid in the world; the Glowing Waterfall splashing down like silver pearls ; and the immemorial, mysterious and attractive Sleeping Beauty.

On the calcareous heap, there are thousands of pools with a variety of colours and shapes. Flower Washing ponds, Glowing Ponds, Potted Landscape Ponds. Mirror Ponds. Sal Tree Ponds. Glamourous Ponds-, Fragrant Ponds, Jade-bathing Ponds, Colorful Ponds in the snow mountain and so on. They are in eight parts, distributed ingeniously bright, gorgeous and splendid.
