Tonggu Ridge, Hainan
Marvelous Tonggu Ridge (铜鼓岭) is located at the eastern tip of Hainan Province. Its main peak stands at 338 meters and is the highest point in the east of Hainan. Tonggu Ridge stretches more than 20km with 18 high or low peaks.
The ridge is unique in its landform and rich in natural resources. It is covered by various kinds of plants and is a haven to more than 20 kinds of animals and 60 birds creating a natural ecological botanical garden and safari park.
The wind-moving stone is quite unique. It is three meters high and weighs more than 20 tons, round on top and sharp at the bottom. When the sea wind comes, it moves with a great noise but for thousands of years has never been blown down.
Looking down the southwestern part of the ridge, the rocks on the green grass are of different shapes. They look like a group of sheep on the grassland. Some are grazing, some are looking up to watch the clouds and some are roaring to their companions. According to the legend, a shepherdess was turned into the wind-moving stone while the 3,650 stones around it are her sheep.
On top of the ridge, you can see the sunrise and sunset. On the clear water of South China Sea, fishing boats float and sea gulls fly.
In 1983, Marvelous Tonggu Ridge was set up as a Nature Reserve. In 2003, it was upgraded to a State-level Nature Reserve. In 2008, Wenchang Tonggu Ridge International Ecological Tourist Resort program was launched. Twelve billion yuan is to be invested to build it into a state-of-the-art seaside holiday resort.
Wenchang Municipal Government has recently renovated all the signposts in the city to show road information in both Chinese and English. Therefore, driving in Wenchang will be more convenient from now on.
