A symbol of Hainan Island, Wuzhi Mountain is rated by the World Tourism Organization a Grade-A tourist spot. It was named "Wuzhi (Five Fingers) Mountain" because its five major peaks look like five human fingers.

The mountain stands in the center of the island, and its highest peak, the second "finger," towers 1,876 m above sea level, being the pinnacle of the island. The mountain is densely covered with tropical virgin forests, and is the source of the main rivers on the island. The forests on the mountain are home to countless precious trees, many over 100 years old. It is also a kingdom for rare birds and animals, including amphibians and reptiles.
