The west of ancient Nanhe Ferry was Yunmeng Lakes, and before Han River incorporates into the channel, all ships in Xiangnan area of Hanchuan which run southwestward like Xiantao and Qianjiang will gather here for boarding, therefore, with many people coming and going, this market fair was extremely busy so that many merchants were gathering here and the market was prosperous. The west of it is a Wugui Mountain full of natural and fantastic scenery.
