The origin of the name Xiaomenyu: east of Xiaomen Village lies a path with mountains on either side, in the past, this path was the only access to the outside for villagers in Xiaomen Village, and the path looked like a small door (Xiaomen in Chinese) from a distance, hence, this place was named Xiaomen.
