Yufeng Hill, means fish peak hill as the 88 meter
(290ft) hill in Yufeng Park looks like a standing fish. The peak
of the hill is a good observation point of the industrial city of
Liuzhou, and has become a popular tourist attraction because of
a famous legend.
It is said that 3rd sister of the House of Liu
was a beloved singer who enjoyed singing about mountains and shepherds,
but also criticized the greed of the local lord in her songs. One
day, the enraged lord drove her into a pond, but two carps come
to save her. 3rd sister Liu escaped on the back of one, and the
other turned into a stone mountain burying the lord beneath him.
A statue of 3rd sister Liu has been built in the area where she
supposedly sang and from which she eventually rose to heaven.
Halfway up the mountain there are 7 rock caves,
including the Arhat Cave, Carp Cave and other caves which are linked
together. More than 50 small dragon pools in the caves drain through
crevices in the rock to the Liu River.
