Zhutan Mountain: It is across the stream from Banyan Village. In the 7th year of Chunxi period of the Southern Song Dynasty (1180), as a well-known Neo-Confucianist, Zhu Xi gave lectures in Xiandu. In his spare time, he usually came here, to take a boat in the Green Pool, and stroll about or have a rest in mountains. This pool is called Zhu Pool by descendants. The mountain located beside the pool is called Zhutan Mountain. A long causeway paved with cobblestones is situated beside the pool, with the willows dancing in the breeze, as well as the bridge spanning the pool, which attracts a lot of lovers to take wedding photos, so as to make Dinghu Peak witness the eternal love, hence the name “Fairy Causeway”. Wangfeng Pavilion on the causeway is the best place for tourists to shoot the reflection of Dinghu Peak. Famous Photographer Mr. Wu Pinhe’s works Fairyland that won the International Photography Award was shot here.
Immortal Causeway There is a long cobblestone causeway flanked by whirling willows between T-shape Bridge in Banyan and Mount Zhutan.

Numerous couples have their wedding photos shot here and make Dinghu Peak, Haoxi River and Lianjin Bridge the witness of their true love. This romantic causeway has been regarded as the bridge of magpies for all lovers; hence, it got the name Immortal Causeway. Many TV series and films were shot here, including The Legend of Sword and Fairy I, The Twins, Legendary Fighter - Yang's Heroine, The Legend of Sword and Fairy III, Xuan Yuan Sword, The Palace: The Lost Daughter, The Swords of Legends, Monk Comes Down the Mountain, and Princess Weiyoung, etc.
