Ailao Mountain Nature Reserve is located at the junction of Chuxiong, Jingdong, Shuangbai, Xinping and Zhenyu Counties. The Ailao Mountain Nature Reserve was created with the purpose of protecting the subtropical mid-mountain, high humidity broadleaf evergreen forest ecosystem and the ecosystem's precious wild animals, such as black gibbons, green peafowl and Phayre's langur. It has a unique geological, atmospheric and hydrological landscape. Some of the spectacular natural landscapes to be seen include the Enda Waterfall, Damoyan Peak, Daxueguo Mountain and the International Migratory Bird Migration Protection Area. To visit in summer is like entering the Emerald Palace; to come in winter is like visiting the Crystal Dragon's Palace. This place is also called a “gene bank” and the “kingdom of animals."
