    Next, you'll visit One Line Sky, a narrow valley with towering cliffs on both sides, where a river flows gracefully through the middle. The name comes from the illusion that the sky appears as a thin line high above due to the steep and narrow landscape.

    Dragon Pool Minoring the Moon is another highlight of the park, where you can witness a fascinating natural phenomenon. During certain times, the moon's reflection in the water creates the illusion of a dragon swimming in the pool, captivating all who see it.
