He meets Wen Ke Xing, a mysterious martial artist who escapes from the Ghost Valley to avenge his parents’ deaths. They become fast friends and embark on an adventure to find a legendary treasure that will give its owner ultimate power over jianghu.

Getting involved in conflicts and getting acquainted with each other eventually became a story of mutual salvation. A conspiracy, two confidants, five pieces of treasure puzzle, twenty years of grievances, thousands of years of dreams.
Shanhe Ling – The original novel “The End of the World” under the banner of two male protagonists, is actually about the non-opposite love relationship between the two male protagonists in the process of walking the rivers and lakes. Such novels were able to be put on the shelves on a large scale back then, and indeed there is a very good female market. However, in the past two years, this type of content has begun to face more stringent review, and the chance of listing has become very slim. Many TV dramas that are good at adapting such novels have also avoided. “The End of the World” was finally renamed “The Order of Mountains and Rivers”, which may have the meaning of avoiding the original novel.
