Introduction to Bajiao Zhai Geography Park (八角寨国家森林公园)

Bajiao Zhai Geography Park is one of the most beautiful Danxia landforms in China. It is located in Ziyuan County in northeastern Guilin at the intersection point of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Hunan Province. The Bajiao Zhai Park is about 107 kilometers away from Guilin with an occupation of 125 square kilometers.

Bajiao Zhai is also known as Yuntai Mountains. Bajiao means eight angles in Chinese and Zhai got its name because its main peak which is in the height of 814 meters has eight angles at its top.

Reputed as ‘the soul of Danxia landform’, the Bajiao Zhai Geography Park was valued as one of the seven great Danxia landforms in China by China National Geographic in 2005. The Danxia landforms in Bajiao Zhai are quite different from others in Guilin. These are formed 14 million years ago at the Cretaceous Age. These red stone mountains are very high and surrounded by the clouds to create the mysterious spectacles.

There are stone steps built along the face of the cliff so that tourists can get to the highest Yuntai Peak. The top of the Yuntai Peak is a great place to enjoy the magnificent views of the mountain peaks in different imaginative shapes and also the scattered villages among the mountains. A Buddhist temple called Tianxin Temple can also be found in this park.
