Situated in Dasheng Town, Yubei District, Chongqing, Yungui Mountain, or Cloud Tortoise Mountain, got its name from the giant tortoise-like shape. The scenic spot is characterized by high mountains, precipitous cliffs, emerald forests, colorful flowers, and fog scenes. Its peak is 1,038 meters above sea level. Standing on the ridge, visitors can overlook Changshou District to the east, the downtown of Yubei District to the west, the whole Dahong Lake to the north. The steep cliffs here, three kilometers high, are commonly known as “white cliffs” given the white color of the rocks. It is a natural place for climbing and adventuring.
The place is an undeveloped forest park with original ecological features among the municipal scenic areas.
There are also a variety of native stone forest groups with diverse shapes, as well as cultural landscapes such as hanging coffins of the Eastern Han Dynasty, Guanyin (a Buddhism goddess) Pavilion of Baiyun Temple and the relic site of Balianjiao, or White Lotus Society (an ancient secret religious society).
