The excellent natural scenery of the Yinghua Mountain is sea of clouds, sea of mist, sea of forest and sea of flowers. Admiring the Virginia Bright Leaf in the morning and Saint Light at evening is another pleasure. 

Some rare trees and many ornamental plants grow on the Mountain, such as Chinese dove trees, ancient ginkgoes, katsura trees, nanmu and redwoods. In spring, azaleas, fairy primroses, camellias and lilies spread all over the mountain, making it like an ocean of vivid wildflowers.
