1 It's located in the east of the Hexigten World Park.

2 The granite landforms you see now were actually formed 0.1 billion years ago. Through those long long days, they have been reshaped again and again by the wind, the sunshine, the rain, and the time.

3 Summers and autumns are the best time to witness the stunning little round or oval pools in the stone. Because it's too cold to go in spring and winter.
