About Baiyun Mountain

A famous spot of natural beauty in Guangzhou, offering a spectacular view of the city. It is also known as the “White Cloud Mountain,” because every time the sun shines after the rain, a wreath of airy clouds circles the mountains. The entire area of White Cloud Mountain is about 28 square kilometers and has 30 peaks. The first peak under the southern sky is the “Moxing Ridge,” about 382 meters high. You can stand on the top and see not only the whole city but also the beautiful Pearl River, the most famous river in Guangzhou. There are six areas that are to be visited. These areas are; Bright Pearl Building Park, The San Tailing Summit Park, The Bird Spring Valley Park (Mingchun Valley), The Santailing Park, The Luhu Park and the Fei'eling Park. Stressing that this is a major beauty spot in a modern city, this attraction is highly recommended for tourists as a return to nature from the big city.
