Reference work entry
DOI: https://doi.org/10.1007/978-981-13-2538-0_1262
This is a landform with isolated peaks on a karst plain or basin. The peak walls are steep, typically over 60°. They generally cover areas of 0.01–0.05 km 2, and they are round in map view. They range in height from dozens of metres to more than 100 m. The peaks can have pagoda-like, conical and river snail-like forms, and they stand alone on the karst plain. They are features of the late stage of karst landform development. They are distributed along the banks of Guijiang and Liujiang in Guangxi, in the Binyang and Laitong areas and in several other karst regions (Fig. 14).
