Wuzhi Mountain
(wǔ zhǐ shān 五指山) is located at the center of Hainan Island (hǎi nán dǎo 海南岛). It is the highest mountain in Hainan. And it is regarded as one of the symbols of Hainan and also one of the famous mountains in China. The peaks are waving like saw-tooth and the shape is like five fingers, hence the name Wuzhi.

Wuzhi MountainThe mountains range from southwest to northeast, from thin to thick. The first peak, which is called Yizhi Mountain (yī zhǐ shān 一指山) is like a huge pyramid with elevation of 1,300 meters high and the top of the peak is piercing into the sky obliquely.

The Erzhi Mountain (èr zhǐ shān 二指山) is the highest peak of the Wuzhishan Mountain with elevation of 1,876 meters high. Between the Yizhi Mountain and Erzhi Mountain there is a "Sky Bridge"( tiān qiáo 天桥) built with a natural huge stone. Since it is surrounded with cloud and mist all year round, it is called the Fairy Bridge with a lot of mythology stories. The Sanzhi Peak (sān zhǐ shān 三指山) was the highest peak originally. Since it was cut by a portion by thunder several years ago, so it became a bit lower than before.
