Ribboned with forests, waterfalls, white rainbows, and fantastically shaped granite peaks and pillars that resemble animal and human silhouettes, this 56,710-acre (22,950 hectare) national park straddles the Huaiyu mountain range in China's Jiangxi Province.

The park was made a UNESCO World Heritage site in July 2008.
