Celebrating the double ninth festival typically includes a touring in the autumn, climbing mountains, ornamental chrysanthemum, dogwood, eating double ninth gao (cake), drinking chrysanthemum wine and other activities. As the university continuing to celebrate with its international students, touring the famous mountain in Xuzhou was an amazing selection to get the students comfortable. On Wednesday October 21 2015 was an exciting mountain tour for more than 40 international students from 12 different countries. The students were extremely excited by the view of the mountain. The famous Yun Long Mountain which is located on the south of Xuzhou city is approximately 240 m. And its beautiful scenery had the students in a very high mountain climbing spirit. The trip began at 2:00 pm with students assembling at the Yun long mountain entrance. The tour guides included You Shi, Vincent, Leona and Aaron.

At the beginning of the trip, the students were very enthusiastic and overwhelming to reach the peak of the mountain but the one hour fifteen minutes walk needed a break of fifteen minutes to get the students to their magic moment---The top of the mountain.

After several times of amazement and photographs, the trip to travel down the mountain had to began even though the students were not willing to leave the beautiful scene.
