The Erzhishan Mountain (2nd Finger Mountain) is the highest peak of the Wuzhishan Mountain with elevation of 1,867 meters high. Between the Yizhishan Mountain and Erzhishan Mountain there is a "Sky Bridge" built with a natural huge stone. Since it is surrounded with cloud and mist all the year, it is called the Fairy Bridge with a lot of mythology stories.

The Sanzhi Peak (3rd Finger) was the highest peak originally. Since it was cut by a portion by thunder several years ago, so it became a bit lower than before.
Then are the Fourth Peak and the Fifth Peak. Although these five peaks' tops are standing separately, their mountain bodies are joined together.

Looking down, you can see the green waves are all under your eyes and water is connected with the sky. These are all too beautiful to be absorbed all at once.
