Hongji Mountain is the highest mountain on Xiamen Island. The main peak dolomite is 339.6 meters high. In the old days, there was a "sunrise observatory" built on the top for visitors to see the spectacle of sunrise, so "Hongji Viewing Day" ranked as the top 24 sceneries in Xiamen. Today's dolomite is more charming and moving than before, but Hongji Mountain is less known, dolomite is well known, so it is renamed "Yunding View of the Sun".
