White Cloud Mountain: 
Guangdong - Guangzhou; 
Travel in Guangzhou, Guangdong People like to describe the natural beauty of Guangzhou as the "pearl sea and white cloud". White Cloud Mountain refers to the mountain range located 7.5 km northeast of Guangzhou. As an offshoot of Dayu Ling, the main mountain range of Guangdong province. White Cloud Mountain consists of some 30 peaks, covering an area of 28 square meters. The highest peak, Moxing Ridge (Star- scraping Ridge) stands in the center of White Cloud Mountain, and is 382 meters high, and regarded as "the First Peak under the Southern Sky".

The name of the mountain is derived from the white clouds that fly over it and gather around its base. The magnificent scenery and abundance of historical relics have made this a famous scenic spot in Guangzhou since ancient times.

White Cloud Mountain is a park with natural hills and waters, ideal for sightseeing and as a summer resort, with a history of development of over 1,000 years. Locations such as Wind Soughing in the Pines on White Cloud Mountain, Pujian Spring, and Looking Afar in the Evening from White Cloud Mountain, the Returned Monk at Jingtai, the Splendid Mountain of Cloud, etc. are all famous scenic spots in this mountain. Renowned poets and scholars of past dynasties, such as Sushi, Yang Wanli, Wang Shizhen and others once came here and recorded their experiences in poetry and prose for posterity.

Described as the premier spectacle of Guangzhou by some brochures, the site is also widely known for the well ordered traffic conditions. In good weather, traveling there is really rewarding and peaceful for those who choose to walk.

In recent times new tourist attractions have been created and these include facilities for water sports, a golf course, botanical gardens and a sculpture park.
