A New Danxia Landform Discovered in Jiangxi

A tourist in boat watches in awe at the view of another Danxia-landformed mountain, which was recently discovered in a reservoir 20 kilometers away from Lichuan County, east China's Jiangxi Province, in this photo taken Thursday, May 21, 2009. Danxia geological landform is so named after an about 320 square kilometer stretches of red sand-gravel-layered mountain ranges that are located in Danxia in the border regions of three southern provinces of Jiangxi, Guangdong, and Hunan. Experts say the new discovery is rare and has potential as a new tourist attraction, which sits right next to its neighboring Zhangjia reservoir.
