Longtan Park, also known as Liuzhou Dalongtan scenic area, is an open urban comprehensive park featuring karst natural landscapes, highlighting the ethnic customs culture of the south, and integrating the subtropical karst plant science and landscape. Dalongtan Scenic Area is located in the south of Liuzhou City, only three kilometers from the city center, with a planned area of about 544 hectares.
Longtan Park is surrounded by lush green forests and mountains. The 24 peaks of Wohu Mountain, Beauty Peak and Peacock Mountain are different in shape and stand in the four valleys of a lake (Jinghu Lake) and two pools (Longtan Pool and Leitan Pool). Under the cliff of Leishan, a clear spring flooded into the "Longtan Pool" in the two mountains of Lei and Long. The clear pool water rushes into the mirror lake, and the water temperature of Leitan Pool and Longtan Pool is constant (18℃~22℃). Every winter, the water vapor is transpiration, so it is called Shuangtan Yanyu.
Liu Zongyuan, a famous writer in the Tang Dynasty, once prayed for rain here, and the essay "Pray for Rain in Leitang " was handed down. There are now commemorative buildings such as the “Pray for Rain Pavilion”, the “Sacrificial Altar” and the “Leitang Temple”. In addition, Zhangchong’s fishing site “Zhang Diao Tai”, Ming Dynasty famous scholar Luo Zhiding’s study den "Ce Shan Lou" and ancient Beiqiu human site of Longshan squid mouth as well as other places of historical interest can be found.
