The most spectacular views are concentrated on the eastern peninsula, where a geological wonder formed between 600,000 and 300,000 years ago stretches along an eight-kilometer coastline. This huge structure was formed as early as the sinian and Cambrian. People can see hundreds of strange stones of different shapes and poses. Some are like rocks with wings spread, some are like monkeys looking at the sea. Others like camels, turtles, dinosaurs, tigers and so on. No wonder it’s called the frozen animal world. The long-lived rock found is the largest sedimentary rock in the world, with the clearest structure and formed 600,000 years ago. One cannot help but marvel at the power of nature.
