Wenbi PeakThere is an old story about the Wenbi Peak. Long ago, one immortal shouldered two loads of soil to the Peach Garden of the Goddess. When he passed Anding, he was attracted by the picturesque scenery, and laid down to have a rest. He was drinking while appreciating the scene. Unconciouly, he was drunk and fell into sleep. After a long time of sleeping, the immortal turned into stone, and the two loads turned into mountains, one of which is the Wenbi Peak.

On Wenbi Peak, there are many relics of the immortal, namely, the Xianren Cave (xiān rén dòng仙人洞), Footprint of the Immortal (xiān rén jiǎo yìn 仙人脚印), Palm of the Immortal (xiān rén shǒu zhǎng 仙人手掌), Xianren Rock (xiān rén shí 仙人石) and Niangzi Cave (niáng zǐ fáng 娘子房).

On the east and west side of the Wenbi Peak, the mountains are composed of igneous rocks, with a history of one million years. However, the Wenbi Peak is composed of the hydrogenic rocks, with a history of hundred of million years. This is rare in geography.
