Cang Mountain, also known as Diancangshan, two kilometers west of Dali, comprises nineteen peaks. From north to south the 19 peaks are Playful Cloud, Green Waves, Five Terraces, Lotus, White Cloud, Crane Cloud, Three-sun, Orchid Peak, Snowman, Ying Le, Goddess of Mercy, Harmony, Dragon Spring, Wang Ju, Horse-dragon, Sheng Ying, Buddhist Top, Horse Ear and Setting Sun. The names are all related to the landscape. The highest peak is Horse-dragon, 4,122 meters above sea level into the sky under a snow mantle that never thaws. It resembles a horse's face and a dragon's head. Interestingly enough, there is a stream between any two of the peaks. In other words there are 18 streams among 19 peaks. The streams have very nice names: Moving Haze, Ten-thousand Flowers, Sun Stream, Mang Yong, Jin Xi, Spirit Spring, White Dress, Duck Couple, Secluded Fairies, Plum Stream, Peach Stream, Mid Stream, Jing Yu, Dragon Stream, Clear Jade, Mo Can, Li Qi, Yang Nan and so on. The streams are fresh and cool, flowing throughout the year into the Erhai Sea. Together with the Erhai Sea and the Heihui River, the Cang Mountain is a charming place on the Yun-Gui Plateau.
