As the temperature falls and the tree leaves turn golden and red, the Tanxi Mountain scenic area - 55 kilometers from downtown Zibo city in East China's Shandong province - is now providing stunning views for residents and tourists alike.

The rich russet leaves, together with the area's majestic slopes and contours, will make for increasingly captivating scenery there in October and November, when the Third Tanxi Mountain Red Leaves Festival gets underway.
