It is the largest imperial garden existing in the world today with a total area of 564 square kilometers, and is twice as large as the Summer Palace in Beijing. In the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), it used to be a summer resort and hunting ground for emperors.

Mountain Resort can be divided into two parts: palace quarter and scenery quarter.
