This geopark is located in Xinning County in southwestern Hunan province. It features a Danxia landform and became a national geopark in 2002. It contains five scenic districts: Zixia Temple, Fuyi River, Camel Peak, Niuzone Village and Bajiao Village. There are many types of Danxia landforms in Kunshan, such as steep cliffs, wedge-shaped strips, segmented blocks, sloped walls, intersecting lines, scattered columns, arches, holes and caves. Among them, the wedge-shaped landscape arranged in rows and the prominent peaks and valleys between them are most striking. It is a large ‘Danxia landform’ museum.
