Longhu (Dragon and Tiger) Mountain is famous for being one of the birthplaces of Taoism, as well as a scenic region, including Danxia rock peaks and cliffs, where you can find numerous hanging coffins from the almost eradicated Bo people. For a longer look at the few remains of the Bo, here's a documentary on the mysterious hanging coffins of China (DocuWiki), which have undergone some preservation and additional studies in recent years. The Bo weren't the only ones to practice this sort of "sky burial," as noted in this article with more information on the Bo and other hanging coffins, which can also be found in the Philippines (CNN tour short) and Indonesia, where the practices live on.
