What travelers say:

Laoye Mountain is also called Yuanshuo Mountain. There is Taiyuan Palace on the top of the mountain, which is also known as Guandi Temple. This is also the origin of Laoye Mountain. The southern slope of Laoye Mountain is a must-see because the main rock mass here is Limestone has been eroded and weathered by flowing water for a long time, forming many strange peaks, caves and canyons. Climbing upwards from the southern slope is somewhat similar to the thrill of Huashan.
