Shuangru Mountain (双乳峰), also known as Double Breast Peaks, is located in Zhenfeng County, Guizhou Province. Covering an area of 2100 acres, the peak reaches an altitude of 1266 meters, with a relative height of 262 meters. Its name is derived from its striking resemblance to the exposed breasts of a mother earth figure. Viewed from various angles, the peaks exhibit shapes resembling breasts at different stages of aging. From the observation platform, they appear as the breasts of a woman in her twenties, while viewed from a 500-meter angle, they resemble the breasts of a woman in her forties. Another angle at 500 meters presents the image of breasts of a woman in her sixties. This natural wonder showcases the incredible artistry of nature.

Local people, particularly the Buyi ethnic group, worship Shuangru Mountain as the “Mother Earth” and “Source of Life.” Some devout individuals even come to the mountain to pray and prostrate themselves in hopes of fertility, wealth, or peace, considering it a sacred site of spiritual significance.

Zhulinbao Stone Forest in Shuangru Mountain Scenic Area is a typical karst landform, characterized by its small and exquisite appearance and unique charm. It is one of the eight major stone forest landscapes in Guizhou Province. The rocks here have complex compositions and varying thicknesses of layers. Through the processes of dissolution and erosion, a variety of peculiar-shaped rocks have been left behind, representing the late stages of landform development. Each stone in the park tells a different story, from the welcoming stone resembling a natural ornamental column at the entrance to ancient fossilized skulls, stones resembling the head of Zhu Bajie (a character from Chinese mythology), a general going to battle in armor, and arrows shooting into the sky, sparking endless imagination and leaving a lasting impression.
