In the local dialect of Xiushan County, “Gai” means a plain on a high mountain. On top of the cliffs with an average altitude of 1,200 meters, Chuanhegai, covering 28 square kilometers, features a vast flat land, flowing mists, and mountain flowers in full bloom. The “garden hanging over clouds” is filled with azalea in spring, gal sang flowers in summer, Miscanthus floridulus in autumn, as well as ice and snow in winter.
