Green Lotus Peak
Green Lotus Peak is the most prominent
peak in Yangshuo and stands near the Li River in the
southeast area of the city. The peak rises out of the
river like a lotus, hence the name Green Lotus Peak.
The north face of the peak is said to be relatively
flat, resembling a Chinese bronze mirror (a geomantic
tool for redirecting misfortune and bad feng shui) and
therefore the peak is also known as Bronze Mirror Peak
Green Lotus Peak has many inscriptions on its cliffs,
in which the 5-meter-long Chinese character 'Dai' caved

endowed the character with a meaning 'as the river and
mountains unfold their greatness before your eyes, young
lads, you should work hard to let your name pass down
