The scenic spot is located in Chengbei district, Yizhou city, in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region. It is seven kilometers away from the downtown area of Yizhou city.

The Longjiang River that runs through Yizhou and the Xiajian River that runs through the Liusanjie Township converge here, with the banks of the two rivers stretching for 25 kilometers.

This scenic spot opened for the first time in 1992. Due to the popularity of the film Third Sister Liu, it has since been a popular tourist attraction. In 1996, the Culture and Art Research Center of China did a shooting of the 14-series TV musical Third Sister Liu here, which was good publicity for the scenic zone. Now, it is a site which attracts many well-known film and TV producers to do their shootings.

Based on the Longjiang River and the Xiajian River, the whole scenic zone consists of sightseeing locations such as a Hub of Tour Dispatch and Third Sister Liu's Former Residence. The Water Stone Forest is full of rocks in remarkable shapes as well as hills and spires of marvelous beauty. It is really a grand spectacle, which is known as "the Soul of Karst". Along the Xiajian River, the landscape is great, the water is clear, and thick forests and tall bamboos can be seen along the banks.

Along the river are picturesque sights such as the Nanshe Mountain, Huixian Mountain, and Tortoise Mountain. In the scenic zone, many souvenirs and necessities are offered. Currently, tourists can go sightseeing on pleasure boats, listen to folk songs, learn about the history of Third Sister Liu, watch folk performances, enjoy their leisure time, and experience rural life in a farmer's house. It has become one of the classic tourist routes featuring "Folk Culture Tour in Guangxi".
