The secret of Guizhou’s Geosuture, a deep geological valley in China

From RMB 3,490

Guizhou province is a beautiful place with abundant tourist resources. In addition to the province’s famous tourist attractions—including Huangguoshu Scenic Spot, Fanjing Mountain, Xiaoqikong Scenic Area, Danxia Valley, and the Site of the Zunyi Conference—a wonderful but little-known attraction, the China Geosuture Scenic Area (中国大地缝景区), has been discovered and developed since only a few years ago.

 

 

 


The China Geosuture Scenic Area, formerly known as the Youtongxi Geosuture (油桐溪大地缝), is located in an ecologically intact virgin forest called the Kuankuoshui Virgin Forest in Kuankuo town, Suiyang County, Guizhou Province.

 

 

  

The China Geosuture is a typical geologic fissure. The geosuture is about 27 kilometers in length and 4 to 6 meters in width. The canyon the fissure creates is deep, with a crystal-clear stream flowing through it. The scenery along the geosuture is beautiful, making it an ideal place for sightseeing, outdoor hiking, and adventure in a cool, shady environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are abundant rare animals and plants in the China Geosuture. Animals that can be found here include the Francois’ leaf monkey, golden pheasants, flying squirrels, and much more. Rare plants in the area include davidia involucrata (or Chinese dove trees), yaccas, and Chinese yew. Precious Chinese medicines also grow here including gastrodia elata, eucommia, and cortex phellodendri.

 

 


Surrounding tourist attractions: the Great Rift Valley, the Panorama of Youtong Creek, Moon Bay, Mangwang Cave, Dishui River Drifting, Mati Creek, and the Francois' Leaf Monkey Habitat.
