The Danxia landform refers to various landscapes found in southeast and southwest China that features steep cliffs in red. It is a unique type of petro graphic geomorphology formed in China. Danxia landform in Taining consists of two regions, Golden Lake in the south and Shaqingxi Stream in the north, with a total area of 235 square kilometers.

The Taining Danxia spectacle is praised as where the story of China's Danxia landform begins.
 
For billion years, Taining has recorded the formation and development process of the West Pacific continental margin of the Mesozoic Era, and retained the complete and remarkable ancient planation surface, the structurally-controlled mountain plain, the special netted valley land and red mountainous mass. What is more, here developed elaborate and intricate canyon complexes, which, together with the grand Danxi cliff, the unique incised meander and unique wonderful Danxia cavern group, form "the Taining style" landform.
 
There distribute about 130 valleys and more than 220 gorges. They are arranged in a crisscross pattern by the nature and been preserved like before. The wonder, like a Grand Danxia Canyon Park, is rarely seen among all China's Danxia landforms.
 
Danxia caves in Taining have been developed for thousand years, with over 60 large single caves and over 100 small caves. These a lot many caves are all in different shapes and sizes, which constitute a unique Danxia micro-landscape. They win Taining the title of Danxia Cave Museum.
