Near the mysterious latitude of 30 degrees north hundreds of millions of years ago, the encounter between the Dalou Mountains and the Sichuan Basin created the karst scenery of the Jinfo Table Mountain Range, along with its chain of majestic peaks.

In the evenings of summer and Autumn, the sun rays glisten upon the misty cliffs in a magnificent palate of color, akin to a giant golden Buddha lying between heaven and earth. Such marvels have long attracted the eulogies of famous poets and inspired the name of Jinfo Shan, which means Golden Buddha Mountain.
