Laifeng Mountain National Forest Park, Baoshan
The whole park, including the Laifeng Hill and Laifeng Park, is a famous scenic spot, with beautiful natural scenery and historical relics.
Located in the south of the county seat, the Laifeng Hill is regarded as the symbol of Tengchong. Though not very high, it is strategically situated and difficult of access and more beautiful than any other mountain in the area. The hill is covered with luxuriant green trees. The name of the hill came from the shape of the hill, which looks like a phoenix resting at the Tengchong Basin. Textual research has shown that the Laifeng Hill was formed about 900,000 years ago when volcanoes erupted here. It is one of the oldest volcanoes in Tengchong. When the sun shines again after a rain, the mountain is shrouded in mist and clouds. So the Laifeng Hill is famous for its mist and clouds when the weather becomes fine after a rain, and is one of the twelve scenic spots in Tengchong. The whole park has an area of 97,000 mu.
Laifeng Park lies at the foot of the Laifeng Hill. It was built where the Laifeng Temple was built in the Qing Dynasty. Climbing on scores of steps, you will reach the gate of the Laifeng Temple, over which is a board engraved with "Laifeng Temple", which was written by Zhao Puchu, president of the Chinese Buddhism Association. Everywhere you can see ponds, winding corridors, rockeries, little bridges and pavilions, which will remind you of the gardens in Jiangsu and Zhejiang. This Buddhist temple is well-known in the western part of yunnan and the northern part of Burma. In Laifeng Park there is an exhibition of historical relics and ethnic customs and cultures. The History and Nature Museum of Tengchong is also located inside the park.
