Everything is beautiful along and by the river such as spectacular rocky mountains, rocks and operating boats and ships. Officials from China People’s Liberation Army conducted the visitors around until reaching Yangdi Port, and they posed for a documentary photo.
Li jiang River lies northeast of Guangxi Zhuang Self-administered Region. Since ancient times, Li jiang River and Gui River have been serving as the crucial watercourse connecting Yangtze Valley and Pearl Delta. Both sides of 270-mile Li jiang River and Gui River are spectacular mountain ranges and rocky mountains. The clean rivers with beautiful sceneries attract millions of international tourists. The place was recognized as a UNESCO global environmental heritage site in 2014.
Accompanied by Chinese Military Attaché to Myanmar Senior Colonel Xiong Shaowei, Myanmar Military Attaché (Army, Navy and Air) to China Brig-Gen Zaw Oo and delegation members, the Senior General visited the Trunk Mountain and Park situated at the junction of Taohua River and Li jiang River in Guilin. They were conducted there round by officials and had a group photo taken.
The Trunk Mountain is called Yi mountain in Chinese. The mountain is so named as it is like an elephant going down to Li jiang River to drink water. There is a small cave called Water-Moon Cave at the bottom of the mountain. The cave is so named as the light of the moon passes the cave and reflects the water surface. The place is packed with local and foreign visitors.
