Chibi, also named Stone Pass, lies on the southern bank of the Yangtze River 36 km northwest of Puqi City. It is a stone hill extending into the river. There are two huge Chinese characters of "Chibi" engraved on the cliff, 1. 5 m long and 1 m wide each. Legends say they were written by Zhou Yu of the Three Kingdoms Period. Chibi used to be a battlefield at the time.

In 208, Cao Cao led his 500,000 troops pursuing Liu Bei while coveting the Kingdom of Wu in the east, wanting to reunify the whole country. Liu Bei retreated in defeat until to Xiakou by the Yangtze River. He sent Zhuge Liang to persuade Sun Quan, king of the Wu, to ally against Cao Cao. Sun Quan agreed and the allied force defeated Cao Cao with a big fire which burnt the rocks red, hence, the name Chibi, meaning red cliff in Chinese.
