Flying-Over Rock

Rock Flying from the SkyTo the northwest of Brightness Summit in Huangshan area lies the famous Rock from the sky, or the Peach of Immortality Rock when it is seen from the Unity Pine. This monolith, 12 meters high, 7.5 meters wide, 1.5-2.5 meters thick and 350 tons in weight, was erected hazardously on a flat-headed cliff, which is 12-15 meters long and 8-10 meters wide at the top. Only nature had the power to do this. So locals have passed down this story: When Nuwa(goddess who patched up the sky and created human beings) smelted the ores to patch up the sky, two were left behind. One turned into the jade that Jia Baoyu (leading character in the classic A Dream of Red Mansions) had in his mouth at birth; and the other became the Rock from the Sky. The opposite Twin Scissors and Twin Bamboo Shoots peaks consititute a marvelous lanscape.
