Beside the tree is Jinlong River winding its way through Chuanyan Village. Here visitors are provided with the opportunity to be a ferryman and experience independent raft piloting. It is actually much fun. Across the river you will find a hill with a hole in it, thus the village is named Chuanyan, meaning a hill that is penetrated. Northeast of the tree is a popular rock climbing zone. There are ten well developed climbing routes, of which the first was opened by the American climber Todd Skinner.
