In the Southern Dynasties (420–589), there was a Qixia cottage (栖霞精舍) in the mountain, so the mountain's name Qixia derived from it. Qixia Mountain includes mountain peaks: the main peak, Sanmao Peak, with an elevation of 286 metres; Dragon Mountain, like a lying dragon, located in northeast; Tiger Mountain, like a fallen tiger, located in the northwest. Qixia Mountain has many scenic spots and historical sites. Its red autumnal leaves and especially its Dongfeitian grottos which were founded in 2000, make it a famous tourist attraction both at home and to abroad.
