The leaves started turning yellow and red on Guangwu in late October and the best season for viewing autumn leaves lasts around two months, says Gou Dan, head of the publicity department of the Nanjiang county committee of the Communist Party of China.
Trees in different parts of Guangwu enable travelers to see the autumn leaves until December because those on the lower parts of the mountain change color later.
Locals jokingly refer to it as the foggy mountain because mist occurs regularly, obfuscating the view, says Jiang Lei, deputy chief of the publicity department of the Nanjiang county committee of the CPC.
Guangwu also means only fog in Chinese.
When it is clear, however, Guangwu is spectacular in autumn as a wide expanse of forest is swathed in yellows and reds. When visitors look from afar, the forest seems to be on fire. When they sit in a moving car, travelers can mistake trees for people running with flaming torches.
