Bìlián Peak information
Located in the southeastern corner of town, this is Yángshuò's main peak; it's also the most accessible (it can be climbed in half an hour). Because it has a flat northern face that is supposed to resemble an ancient bronze mirror, it is also called Bronze Mirror Peak (Tóngjìng Fēng). The peak rises up next to the Lí River, in the Mountain Water Garden (Shānshuǐ Yuán); look for the sign that says 山水园.
