Longmen Mountain - Exotic Stones and Surging Waves
The Longmen Mountain located in the seaside Eman Town of Danzhou is one of the famous attractions in Yangpu-Eman Volcanic coast. The Longmenshan is a rock mountain standing in the coast, with the highest point of 39m. Looking from north to south, mountain peaks stretch long and unbroken, creating a quite spectacular view. It look just like the Great Wall. The gate on the east side of mountain has a reputation &s the First Door to South Sky, and is more than 30m high, 20m wide, hollow ventilation, and the rock is arched. When the north wind is blowing, the huge waves strike the rock gate. The sound, like beating drums，resounds across ten miles. That is the origin for ''Breaker at the Dragon Gate".
According to History Book of Danzhou, Fu Nanshe, the leader of Li Group in Ming Dynasty, settled down there with his troop after suffering a setback in uprising. They fought with official armies for over ten years at the place. Breaker at the Dragon Gate gained its name in Ming Dynasty and wad admired by visitors since then. A Bagong (simnehe silgasi) named Chen Qing Zhuang in the early Qing Dynasty wrote a four-line poem with seven characters to a line and a strict tonal pattern and rhyme scheme: "the stones in Longmen looks steep and undulating, and the tides come afar with white waves. The long roads are no less tough than the Sichuan Road, and so many challenging roads lie at my home town." The poem blends feelings with scenery, and is rather intriguing.
The scenic spot is located northwest of Eman harbor, and 55km from the Nada Town in the downtown. Visitors arrive there at the lighthouse and the big windmill in the direction of the sea.
