Wuyi Mountain tourist area of typical Danxia landform boasts its splendid mountains and waters. By the hand of nature, unique landscape of many peaks, stream bends and rocks are formed in this Wuyi Mountain Scenic Area. And the visit to Nanping was to tour Wuyi Mountain which impressed me greatly for the first time, and especially the Heavenly Tour Peak, is really worthy of the name. I called it a worthwhile trip!
Below are some eye-pleasing pictures first showed for you.

I stayed in Lantiang Village during the three-day tour. The routes of the tour are as follows:
Morning: Water Curtain Cave – Rocks and Flower Fragrances crawlerway - Big Red Robe – Lantang Village
Route: To save money, I did not buy shuttle tickets for travel within the tourist area, and instead, I took the bus.

I walked between attractions and to Lantang Village for lunches.

Afternoon: Tiger Roaring Crag — Tiancheng Temple — Green Field crawlerway — A Thread of Sky
Route: firstly I had a trip to the top of the Tiger Roaring Crag and then by the way of Green Field crawlerway I continued my tour at the A Thread of Sky. At the end of A Thread of Sky trip, I took A Thread of Sky to Lantang Village bus back to the hotel
Day 3: Jade Maiden Peak – back to home
To the Jade Maiden Peak I still took the bus, yet when I returned from the Jade Maiden Peak to Lantang Village, I walked along the stream and during the course, photographed the Crown Peak at different angles.
