This was the birthplace of the CCP propaganda machine; Xinhua News Agency and the Liberation Daily started life here when the place was known as ‘Information Mountain’. Now, it’s a pleasant hillside park with good city views, some nice trails and a few sights, including Ten Thousand Buddha Cave (万佛洞; Wànfó Dòng) dug into the sandstone cliff beside the river. The cave has relatively intact Buddhist statues.
