China Scenic - - GEOLOGY -

Lo­cated at Yuan­hou Town, 44 kilo­me­ters from the city of Chishui, Foguang Rock cov­ers an area of 26 square kilo­me­ters. The most ob­vi­ous dif­fer­ence be­tween the Foguang Rock and other Danxia land­scapes scat­tered in north­west­ern and south­east­ern China is that it has no tow­er­ing peaks, usu­ally the most dis­tinc­tive fea­ture of Danxia land­scape; in­stead, it has a mas­sive ringshaped red cliff with a width of 1,117 me­ters and a height of 385 me­ters.
