In 1997, the Park was rated as a National Forest Park for tourists. With precipitous terrains and smooth lands intertwined with each other naturally, the Park presents a sophisticated landscape: Shiren Mountain, with a altitude of 441.3m, is crowned as the highest mountain in Shenyang. Its height and its thick forests are extremely compelling; veiled in the trees and bushes, Nantianmen, Cangxian Pavilion, the relics of Shuangquan Temple, the Dragon Pavilion, the Phoenix Pond, and the ski resort exert a sense of mystery and vicissitudes. Various orchards are inlaid into the forests. When autumn comes, visitors can enjoy themselves by picking and tasting the ripe fruits. The trilling performance of alligators from Thailand and the intriguing performance of ethic artists from Xishuangbanna bring the exotic flavor to the citizens of Shenyang.
The command base for combat readiness built by the engineer soldiers from the PLA, among which Lei Feng once served, is located in the mountain. The soldiers had struggled for 8 years to scoop the mountain and build this “City of Soldiers Hidden in the Mountain”. The grand and miraculous cave with more than 90 rooms can accommodate more than a thousand officers. It’s no doubt another attractive scenic spot for visitors.
