Fu, it abounds with tourist attractions including 432 peaks, 980 waterfalls and springs, and 18 Taoist grotto-heavens. The highest point of the mountain is the Feiyun Peak in the Luo Mountain area reaching 4,252 feet (1,296 meters). Among the hundreds of waterfalls in the area, the best known and the largest in all of Guangdong Province is the Baishuimen Waterfall. In addition, the Baishuili Waterfall and Huanglong Grotto Waterfall are also well-known in the area for their beauty and power. The craggy peaks and rock outcroppings, together with surging waterfalls and verdant trees, make the mountain an appealing tourist destination.
The scenic and rural Luo Fu Mountain region is conveniently located 70 miles north of Shenzhen and 75 miles east of Guangzhou.
