    Brief of Precious Stone Hill Floating in Rosy Clouds

    Precious Stone Hill, a hike-friendly hill perching on the northern bank of West Lake, is one of the locals' most popular weekend jaunts and a favorite summer escape. It features soaring pagodas, quaint pavilions, serene monasteries, dense bamboo forests, winding trails, diversified wildlife and countless red rocks sparkling like inlaid diamonds against a morning or evening glow. Hence, it’s called Precious Stone Hill. Precious Stone Hill Floating in Rosy Clouds, a natural wonder epitomizing its dramatic beauty during a sunrise or sunset, is among the Ten New Scenes of West Lake.
     
    This intoxicating scenery has inspired a legend which is no less enticing: the Jade Emperor God used to spread "a rain of precious stone" onto the hill during Middle Autumn Festival. Only kind, precious souls can find these stones, which in turn make greedy landlords and corrupted officials green with envy. One day, some court envoys discovered the secret of finding these precious stones accidentally. In no time, this became an open secret among their masters. They rushed there and, in their scramble for jewelry, fought each other desperately. Furious, the Jade Emperor God sealed these precious stones in a cave with huge rocks for eternity. These buried stones, though hidden deep within a cave, still radiate. Their brilliance seeps through the cracks, casting bright colors across the surrounding rocks.
