China Scenic - - CONTENTS - By Li Zhong­dong

At the area where Sichuan, Chongqing, and Guizhou in­ter­sect, ge­ol­o­gist Li Zhong­dong found a vast land with Danxia cliffs that cov­ers more than 13,000 square kilo­me­ters. Th­ese imag­i­na­tion-de­fy­ing red-rocked cliffs are a unique and mys­te­ri­ous ge­o­log­i­cal world, and study­ing their ori­gin helps us un­der­stand the ge­o­log­i­cal mak­ings of China.
