Geological landform

The Wuyi Mountains mainly distribute the metamorphic rocks of the Pre-Sinian and Sinian, the Mesozoic volcanic rocks, granites and clastic rocks.

In the late Mesozoic era, a strong volcanic eruption occurred in Wuyishan, followed by large-scale granite intrusion. It has been found that this area is rich in volcanic structures and is a typical structural feature of the Pacific Rim in eastern Asia. The red glutenite in the late Cretaceous period is the main body of the Danxia landform.

The crustal movement of the Mesozoic laid the basic skeleton of the Wuyishan landform. The nature of the Wuyi Mountain is also obvious. The mountain peaks above 1500m in the west are basically composed of hard tuff lava and rhyolite. The eastern red sand shale area often has wide valleys and basins. Therefore, the rich landform types of Wuyi Mountain are the result of the combined effects of geological structure, water erosion, weathering and erosion, and gravity collapse.
