Ox Liver and Horse Lung Gorge

Starting from the New Beach of Zigui County, downstream along the Yangtze River for a while, the visitors can find two sienna rocks between the strange cliffs on the northern bank. One rock resembles an ox liver, the other resembles a horse lung. In the past, there was an old pine on the Horse Lung, it looked like a guard of the gorge and became a natural beacon.

Over centuries, the Ox Liver and Horse Lung hanging there for people to watch. But in the Guangxu Period of Qing Dynasty, it has been bombarded by the gunboat and caused damage on the lower part of Horse Lung.

Not far from the upper reaches of Ox Liver and Horse Lung Gorge, there is a ridge on the north river bank which looks like a phoenix. It extends to the point stone of the river resembling the mouth of a phoenix. When the water rises and beats at the "phoenix mouth", it will be throwing up to several meters because of the resistance. Under the sunlight, the water is as colorful as a floating ribbon.

On the south river bank, there is a strange rock on the highest point of the towering mountains. It looks like a people riding on a horse, so it is called "Renma Stone". There is an old legend of the "Renma Stone", it is said that once upon a time, a whiz kid called Zhang Xiao saw an immortal phoenix was eating wheat in the field. Zhang Xiao rode on his horse to drive the phoenix to the river bank. The phoenix flew over the river turned into a green ridge and Zhang Xiao and his horse turned into rock standing at the top of the ridges and mountains, monitoring that phoenix.
