In the summer of 1886, British missionary Selby Little visited the town below the summit of Mount Lushan and found it to be an excellent place to escape the heat. He decided to name the town "Cooling Town," which cleverly combines the English word "cool" with the Chinese name "Guling." 

More than 130 years later, Patrick from London visited Mount Lushan for the first time and was deeply amazed by the beautiful scenery and environment there. At an altitude of over a thousand meters, one can enjoy steaming hot coffee. The small town at the summit has complete electricity and heating facilities, allowing visitors to experience the rich flavor of China amidst clouds, fog, and snow...

As one of China's top ten famous mountains, Mount Lushan is renowned for its extraordinary beauty. The convenient lifestyle and preservation of the beautiful scenery are inseparable from the efforts of the "Emission-Free Mountain" environmental project. In the project area, more than 10,000 coal-burning chimneys have been dismantled, resulting in a 97% reduction in emissions, allowing Patrick to freely roam amidst the beautiful clouds of Mount Lushan.
