White Cloud Mountain

White Cloud Mountain, located about 17 kilometers north of Guangzhou, has been one of the most famous spots of natural beauty in Guangzhou. People always describe the natural beauty of Guangzhou as being composed of white cloud and pearl sea, the white cloud referring to White Cloud Mountain.
