Zhaga Waterfall is a multilayer fall with each varying layer. It is 104 meters in height, 35 meters in width, China's highest calcification waterfall. From the huge calcification terrace dashes down the lake water at a speed of 23 meters per second, magnificently passing the waves sound miles away.

The Two Seas at the tail end of Munigou Valley echoes the Zhaga Waterfall just across the mountain. Near the Two Seas people can see along the way the Big, Small Lake, Swan Lake, Emerald Lake and Lake Rhinoceros, etc.. Each piece of lakes looks like pearls and gems scattered in between, some hiding in the jungle, others lie bare under the blue sky. The lake water is clear and transparent, just like a mirror, with dense woods reflected in the water: what a freshly blue scene. When it comes into the summer and the autumn, the lake full of wildflowers makes it difficult to tell flowers from the water: very unique.
