The most prominent landmark of Xiding, it reaches 1050 meters in height.

Looked at from above it resembles a huge elephant ( da xiang) with the head, trunk and back all clearly visible. According to older locals, in earlier times if a boom was heard coming from the mountain when the weather was good there was a good chance that the weather would change for the worse and, vice versa, if the boom was heard when the weather was bad it was likely to get better.
