The only way is rely on our feet. It takes more than four hours to tour the village. On the top of the village there has a broad plains, which is a wonderful natural viewing platform. Seen from the spacious flat upland, thousands of pillar-like hills, split by bottomless abysses, sprang up into the sight and soared up dramatically. What a spectacular wonderland! Every single individual can be silenced by its sheer scale. No wonder it is reputed as one of world's greatest natural wonders.
