Chinese Rock That Looks Like A Dick!

By Jonny Blair

China is a marvellous country to travel in and it's great to get off the beaten track so it was time to head to the north of the Guangdong Province on a special trip. There's a location known as Penis Rock - it's basically a rock in the shape of a man's willy that you can hike up past and admire! Yes it really looks like a big dick! []

What is Penis Rock? (in Chinese "Yang Yuan Stone")

It's a rock shaped like a penis. A willy, a dick, a cock, a nob, a member, a wee man. Whatever name you want to call your manhood. Apparently it's natural. But it seems too natural to be true really. Even the curvature at the tip of this willy is similar to a real one.

Finding and accessing the rock is easy enough if you are Chinese, or at least speak it. If you are not Chinese it could take you a while to find it but will be some adventure!

Start off by getting to Shaoguan city, this is a massive city in north Guangdong, the province in China. You can get there easily by high speed rail. China's high speed and normal train network is extensive so you will have no problems. The bus from Shaoguan out to the mountains will be the trickier journey.

When visiting Danxiashan you should stay in the village of Yao Tang up in the mountains. You can get a hotel there easily and it is also near another small village called Jin Jiang. This is where the walk to penis rock starts.

On the way to the Danxia mountains you need to get an entrance ticket. They will be valid for a total of 48 hours and cost 120 RMB from the ticket office before the entrance to the National Park.

A map of the area of Danxiashan. I don't think English ones are available as there are simply no English speaking people about, nor any non-Chinese people. But then why should they have English maps? This is China don't forget! You don't see a map of my hometown of Bangor in Northern Ireland translated into Chinese now do you?

The view from the top of the Pavilion is outstanding. On the other side you view an incredible sunset from the top of a Fortress. Finally I had to do at least one funny photo when I was there at Penis Rock. The Chinese are such a shy race when it comes to sex, nudity and willies, this photo attracted more odd looks than laughs!

What? A massive rock in the shape of a man's dick.

Why Go? It's an unusual rock, a marvellous sunset, exceptional hike, cheap beers, great views.
