 Location: 
The location is in Kilian Mountain range. Linjay and Sunan areas are there next door and spread over 30 kilometers. Archeologists found out and recognized the place in 1920.  Only the  local population knew about these spectrum mountains. The beauty of the place is best viewed at the sunsets when the golden sun’s rays make them more attractive.
It is easy to go to the mountain range but the area has no eating facilities.: 
 The area was under the kingdom of Song dynasty. The park is also known as the Linjay Danxia scenic area. The park has the arrangement of transportation by the buses plying regularly, but the area has no marked place for refreshments.
