Stunning sunset glow at Jinfo Mountain in SW China's Chongqing

Tourists enjoyed the stunning sunset glow from a karst cave at the Jinfo Mountain in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality on Tuesday. The Jinfo Mountain means "golden Buddha mountain" in Chinese. It gets its name for its resemblance to the Buddha when sunlight shines on the peaks and creates a golden radiance like that of Buddha's halo.

The vast forest on the mountain is home to 2,997 plant species, thus hailed as the Alps of the East. The Jinfo Mountain has a typical karst landform, which endows it with multiple natural karst caves.
