There is a wide array of maple leaves with 3 points, 5 points and even 13 points. More than 10 scenic spots, including Guanmen Mountain, Big Stone Lake, Maple Valley, Five Female Mountain and so on have become wonderful places for photography.

These scenic spots constitute many enchanting landscapes for viewing Benxi maple leaves. Because the temperature begins to drop drastically in November, maple leaves in every scenic spot in Benxi will turn red at the third level.
