    We were told that the govevrnment spends 6m RMB per year to maintain this tree. The branches and trunks are mechanically supported. It was a nice view point.  more »

    It is the 800-year-old yuping Lou left to pine. This name comes from only one branch welcomes guests looking. And attraction, visited the first visit from the ropeway of yuping and inflates expectations after climbing.
