China announces £1,000 prize for naming rocky ledge that looks like a face



Authorities
in China have decided that the bluff on Lushan Mountain in Jiujiang, Jiangxi
Province in eastern China, bears a striking resemblance to a

human face in
profile. 

They are so
taken by the similarity that they are running a competition to come up with a
name, with a handsome 10,000 yuan ($1,634; £1,021) prize for winner.
Considering
the average wage of a Chinese private-sector worker was 28,752 yuan ($4,697;
£2,935) last year, that seems like it’s worth the effort.
Situated in
the northern part of Jiangxi, Lushan is one of the most renowned mountains in
the country, well known for its grandeur, steepness and beauty. 
Its highest point
is Dahanyang Peak, which towers 4,835ft above sea level and pierces the sea of
clouds shrouding the mountain almost 200 days a year.
The
surrounding Lushan National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since
1996 and is a prominent tourist attraction, particularly during the summer
months when the weather is cooler.
Tourism
officials in China seem to like changing the name of mountains.
In 2010 the
3,544ft Southern Sky column in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park had its
name officially changed to ‘Avatar Hallelujah Mountain’ because of its
resemblance to the floating peaks of the James Cameron 3D blockbuster.


So, Does this
cliff look like anyone you know? 
You never can tell, you may be the one to win the £1,000 prize.
