The main attractions are the Physiognomy of Sea Cliff, the Geyi Nunnery, the Shangfang Temple, the Linglong Pagoda, the Kwan-yin Cave, and the well-known Tianti (a ladder that can lead to heaven) can be seen on the north route.
The middle line takes the “Longquan Temple” as the starting point and goes along the mountain, you can view the ancient health cultivation sites, such as the Immortal Cave, the Xuanyuan Cave, and the Three-Buddha Cave, all carved in the Liao (907-1125) and Jin (1115-1234) Dynasties.
