Geographical environment


Longhu Mountain is one of the regions with the best development degree of Danxia landform in China, and belongs to the Xinjiang fault basin in geological structure. The basin began to form in the late Triassic. During the Late Jurassic period (1.5-140 million years) to the Early Cretaceous (1.4-0.9 billion years), there were active volcanic eruptions in the basin and sedimentary mudstone rocks. It laid a material foundation for the formation of volcanic landforms in this area. By the late Cretaceous (0.9-607 million years), the basin expanded and deposited a thick layer of purple-red river-lake clastic rocks (conglomerate, sandstone) to provide material conditions for the formation of Danxia landforms in this area. The later crustal movement turned the area into land, and the external geological processes such as flowing water scoured along the rock fissures, erosion cutting, and gravity collapse, which gradually formed the typical Danxia landform landscape in this area. The genetic types include: water flow erosion erosion type, collapse residual type, collapse accumulation type, dissolution weathering type, dissolution weathering collapse type. In terms of morphology: Shizhai, Shiqiang, Shiliang, Shiya, Shizhu, Shifeng, Fengcong, Fenglin, Yixiantian, Shanbianshan, Zhubeishan, honeycomb cave, vertical cave, Tianshengqiao, Shimen, etc. And there are all kinds of mimicry and beautiful appearances.
