About Fengyang

Fengyang County is located in east-central Anhui Province and is under the administration of Xuzhou City. It is the hometown of the first Ming Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang and the cradle of China’s rural reform. Fenghuang is one of Anhui's well-known tourist counties because of its long history and many cultural and historic sites, which are worth a visit. There is the famous drum tower (gulou), a majestic structure in a Ming architectural style with a great air of history about it. There is also the famous Langxiangmigu (“Wolf Alley Enchanting Valley”) with its odd topography of connecting grooves and valleys that make visitors feel like they are inside a mysterious natural maze.

The valley is a natural "labyrinth" of natural karst landforms. The paths through this maze are very narrow. In the narrowest parts, people can only get through by bending over or crawling sideways. The textured rock walls to either side of the passage are rough and jagged. People who enter the valley may get lost on their way out.
