Feilai Peak Top Amazing Sights You Should Not Miss
Most of the caves are scattered on the south-east of the Feilai peak, while Longhong Cave situates on the west of Chuncong Lake with its exit facing Ligong Tower (or Lingjiu Tower) which was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in Hangzhou. According to record, the body of the founder of the Peak was buried under the tower.
On the left of Longhong Cave, there is Shexu Cave. Why it is called Shexu Cave? It is because of a narrow space between two huge rocks, also called “One Thread of Sky”. People could only see the sun from the narrow space by luck. But it specifies the grotesque stone of Feilai Peak.
