Liji Lunar World (Liji Badlands) / Little Huangshan
The name Shiauhuangshan ("Little Huangshan") is derived from the famous Huangshan ("Yellow Mountain") in Eastern China, a Unesco world heritage site.
Liji Lunar World was formed by the uplifting of soft marine sediments above the surface of the sea and their subsequent erosion into an infinite number of small gullies where no blade of grass can grow. The resulting topography resembles the badlands of Lunar World in Gangshan, Kaohsiung County. This unusual geological area, which is about two kilometers long and one kilometer wide, can be viewed from either Beinan Bridge or Liji Bridge.
The cliffs along the river shine golden in the sunlight and are reflected in the water, creating a scenic panorama that stretches four kilometers.
