About Lechang

Lechang (乐昌) is situated in Northern Guangdong Province. It is known as the northern gate of Guangdong and is inhabited by the Hakka people. Lechang offers unique landscapes and beautiful scenery comprising Danxia landforms, karst landforms, lava caves and subterranean rivers. The region is also home to hot springs. Jinji Ridge (literally “Rooster Ridge”) is located in Pingshi Town, and is so named as the northwestern peak resembles a rooster. The area also has a large limestone cave, the ancient Buddha rock, which gets its name from the ancient Buddhist temple that once stood at the cave entrance. The stalactites in the cave form various types of stalagmites, “stone flower” lichens, and more, collectively referred to as the “three palaces and four halls.”
