Shihyusan is a very famous location on the eastern coast, located at around ten kilometers north of Chenggong Town at a cape about a kilometer in length. Looking at it from far away it looks like two giant rocks folded to look like a stone umbrella, and with slender rocks holding up the bigger rocks up top making it an umbrella (or mushroom) shape to earn its name. Shihyusan's shape is due to the different texture caused by the rocks. The giant rock up top is made from the relatively hard coral reefs, and below is a more fragile conglomerate, the result of the difference in erosion over time is that the rocks on the bottom becomes slender as the rocks on top gained a rough texture. Aside from Shihyusan there are also many interesting terrains that are formed through erosion as well such as the sea caves by the cape, sea gates, and other special landscapes.
