The events of "Fooling the Lords," a famous story from Chinese history, took place on this mountain. The mountain is divided into the eastern and western ridges. The main sights lie along the western ridge, and include the Beacon Tower in the story "Fooling the Lords," and the Bingjian Pavilion commemorating the Xi'an Incident. The Beacon Tower lies at the mountain peak, and is therefore the highest scenic spot on the mountain. The Bingjian Pavilion is where Chiang Kaishek was discovered hiding during the Xi'an Incident of 1936. At the foot of Lishan lies the famous Huaqing Pool. The view looking down over Huaqing Pool from the Sunset Pavilion on the mountain at dusk is known as "Sunset at Lishan," and is one of the famous sights within the Hangu Pass.
