Numerous valleys crisscross, with streams, springs, waterfalls and pools everywhere. In one place, there are three separate pools in a valley. They look like three boats floating on the endless ocean. These deep pools never dry up. The green water befriends birds and trees in nearby slopes in daytime and reflects the moon and stars at night. After it clears up after rain, the hills nearby look like a screen, dripping fogs form into a sea of capricious clouds; the peaks above the clouds look like these rocks sitting on the edge of the pools, their shapes being sheltered in the foggy clouds; In these clouds, hills and trees grow together while the earth and the sky touch each other. All these scenes turn the place into a land of mysteries.
