Precious Stone Bill Floating in Rosy Cloud, On the Baoshi Hill, Xihu, Hangzhou, 杭州市西湖区西湖北岸宝石山上, Xihu District

Precious Stone Hill is the shield of the north bank of the West Lake. The color of rocks on the hill is ochre red, and there are a lot of shining red pebbles in the rock mass. Once they are exposed to the sunshine, the whole mountain is covered with amazing colors. Especially when the mountain is bathed in the rosy clouds of dawn or the sunset glow, the rocks are particularly dazzling, as if countless precious stones are shining and glimmering, from which the name of Precious Stone Hill is obtained.

Viewed at a distance, these stones seem to be floating in rosy clouds over West Lake. It is a serene enjoyment to watch at the hilltop the sunrise in drifting clouds over the sea. That has therefore made one of the new ten scenes of West Lake –Precious Stone Hill Floating in Rosy Cloud.
There stands Baochu Pagoda atop the hill. Known as the landmark of Hangzhou, the 45-meter-high pagoda appears to be a pretty girl standing slim and graceful.
