Looking in from the mouth of the drinking hole, the inside is obviously lower than the mouth of the hole.
■Every spring and summer, the stone will make a rhythmic and crisp sound, just like playing a musical instrument.
■ Suspecting someone is playing mystery, put it in the hole with tape. Several young people set up a long ladder and searched around the stone for a few days, but found nothing in the end.
■No matter how big the flood is, it can "drink" into the hole, and then slowly "spit" it out when it's sunny.
"There is a beautiful legend, the exquisite stone can sing. It can give wisdom to the brave, but also to the hardworking. As long as you understand its preciousness, you can get it from the high mountain..."
Yan Weiwen’s popular song "The Legend of Muyu Stone" has a realistic version in Wushan County: In the county's Guandu town, in a cave about 2 meters in diameter, there is a large rock shaped like a big drum. In the spring and summer, the stones will make a rhythmic and crisp sound, just like playing a musical instrument. The locals call it a "sing hole". The legend is that fairies are singing, and those who enter the cave will have good luck as long as they hear the stone "sing".
Not only that, the more mysterious part of the "singing hole" is that it can drink and spit water according to the weather: no matter how big the flood, it can "drink" into the hole, and then slowly "spit" it out when it is sunny, so The small river ditch outside has never been flooded, and the surrounding villagers have been protected from floods for many years. Therefore, ordinary people call it "drinking hole".
The water flows to a low place, and it is normal for mountain torrents to enter the cave, but why can it flow back out of the cave which is obviously lower than the entrance of the cave on a sunny day? This has become a mystery that the locals have been unable to solve. Therefore, various legends about the "drinking hole" spread slowly, attracting many people to make a special trip to find out.
