According to The Daily Mail, all four seasons are able to be viewed from the magnificent vantage point provided on the rolling hills of the province. From the autumn leaves to the spring flowers, it is lauded as one of the most beautiful sights by visitors to China. The event kicked off on Sept. 14, attracting participants from several parts of the world.
