Danxia is a very important term in geography. In a popular sense, Danxia's landforms are generally red. It is a special landform formed by the peaks of red sandstone through long-term weathering and erosion of flowing water.

This definition is accepted by most scholars. Danxia landforms can also be expressed as "red-layered landforms characterized by steep cliff slopes."

Danxia landforms are mainly distributed in China, the western United States, Central Europe, and Australia. Danxia landforms are the most widely distributed in China. At the same time, the Colorado Grand Canyon is also a typical Danxia landform.

The development of Danxia landforms began in the crust movement in the third century. This movement tilted some red strata and raised the red basin to form an outflow area.

The flowing water concentrates on the low-lying parts of the basin, and the vertical section of the rock layer is eroded to form a two-wall upright ditch.

Danxia landform is a gift of nature and a representative of the mysterious power of nature. Let's introduce some of the world's famous Danxia landforms.

Guizhou Danxia Valley

Danxia Valley, China, is located in Guizhou's national nature reserve and is a national forest park. Danxia Valley covers an area of 80 square kilometers, with nearly 4,000 plants inside and more than 1,600 wild animals.

Guizhou Danxia Valley is the best original ecological canyon in the world, and it is like a pearl inlaid on the land of China.

China Taining World Geopark

Taining World Geopark is a scenic area combining Danxia landforms and lakes. It is also a typical representative of the youth Danxia landforms. It also has various geological relics such as volcanic rocks, granite, and constructive landforms.

It is a comprehensive geological park. The total area of Taining World Geopark is 492.5 square kilometers, of which Danxia's landform area is 252.7 square kilometers.

The primitive ecology of Taining World Geopark is its main landscape characteristic, which combines strangeness, diversity, leisure, and cultural nature.

Bryce Canyon National Park

The Bryce Canyon National Park is located in the southwestern part of Utah, USA, and is also a typical Danxia landform. Although its name has the word canyon, it is not a real canyon.

It seems to be a huge natural open-air theater that is eroded. Its unique natural geographical structure is eroded by wind and water.

U.S. Wave Valley

There is a wave valley in northern Arizona. Later, with the rise of the Colorado plain, with the long wind erosion and water erosion, the level of sandstone in the canyon gradually appeared clearly.

The Danxia landform was eventually formed. The smooth texture of the smooth sandstone and the rock creates a three-dimensional effect.

Peruvian Rainbow Mountain

The Rainbow Mountain in Peru is located at 5,200 meters above sea level and belongs to part of the Osassagt.

Rainbow Mountain is located in the Andes Mountains in Peru with an altitude of about 5200 meters and is a typical Danxia landform. Its mountain rock is colorful and clear. Looking at it at a glance, it is like a physical rainbow bridge, which is very beautiful.
