Mount Mangshan National Park is a complete forest museum with abundant rainfall and rich natural resources.

The Yao live nearby. Their home feature exquisite roofs and poling, finished wood windows, and picture plaques framing the main gates. Taken together these demonstrate unique primitive simplicity and elegance.
