Leigong Mountain: Leigong Mountain, the highest peak of the Miao Ridge, stretches along the natural reserve, and also gives the name to Leishan County. It consists of 11 smaller hills with an altitude of over 1,800 meters. Legend has it that Leigong Mountain is haunted with nimbus for its three matchless landscapes, namely the giant cedar, Buddhist temples and the sealed book. It's estimated by the UN experts that Leigong Mountain is the best preserved land that is rarely contaminated by modernity.
For thousands of years, the Miao people have been toiled and multiplied in this wondrous land, giving rise to the unique Miao culture. Leishan County is also crowned as the centre of Miao culture.

In other words, Leishan is the miniature of preceding dynasties.Please share this Information:
