The Wuzhi Mountain is one of the famous mountains in China. The peaks are waving like saw-tooth and the shape is like five fingers, this is how the Wuzhi Mountain (Five Fingers Mountain in Chinese) got its name.
The mountains range from southwest to northeast, from thin to thick. The first peak Yizhishan Mountain (1st Finger Mountain) is like a huge pyramid with elevation of 1,300 meters high and the top of the peak is piercing into the sky obliquely.
The Erzhishan Mountain (2nd Finger Mountain) is the highest peak of the Wuzhishan Mountain with elevation of 1,876 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.

When you climb up along the mountain roads, you will find the cloud and mist is gushing to you from up to down gradually. This is one of the features of the Wuzhi Mountain. If you climb to the top of the Wuzhishan Mountain, the cloud and mist is much thicker as if you were in the space. 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.
