  The Longmen Stone Village (Block Lava Flow) Scenic Area to the southwest of East Longmen Mountain is a breathtaking volcanic site. Main attractions here are “toppled stone stockades” and “stone ponds” created by deposits of eruption block lava from East Longmen Mountain and West Longmen Mountain.
