Hot spots in Yangshuo
nine-horse fresco hill
Jiuma painting mountain is one of the famous landscapes of Lijiang River in Guilin, and it is also a marvel of nature. Located 4 kilometers northwest of Xingping Town, the mountain is more than 400 meters high and 200 meters wide. It stands close to the river. The stone walls are cut and colorful. From afar, it looks like a huge painting screen. If you look at it carefully, there are only a group of horses standing or lying down, or raising their heads and neighing, or flying with their hooves, looking back at the clouds and sky, or leisurely looking for food.
It is said that the nine horses in the painting screen were originally heavenly palaces and gods, but because Sun Wukong, who was in charge of "Bi Ma Wen" at that time, was not in charge, he stole from the mortal world and came to drink water by the Lijiang River. Later, he was found by the painters on the riverside and was frightened. He mistakenly entered the stone wall and remained in the world forever. According to the local people, people who can see nine horses here must not be ordinary people. Premier Zhou Enlai is one of them.
