Karst Landform in Beijing - Longqing Gorge


Beijing Longqing Gorge World Geological Park is located 10 kilometers northeast of Yanqing County. It is a place of marine sedimentary strata and sedimentary tectonic relics from 1.85 to 800 million years ago, with typical northern karst landform of the Cenozoic era since 40 million years ago. Longqing Gorge is one of the new sixteen scenic spots in Beijing, and was named a national AAAA scenic spot in 2002.

Longqing Gorge has a karst landscape similar to that of Guilin and is known as the "little Lijiang River" in Beijing! The picturesque Jiuqu Lake is like a landscape scroll delivering the charm of Lijiang River. The nature's magic work has created more than 30 landscapes such as Zhenshan Rulai, Zhong Mountain, Fengguan Island, Dongdazhai and Moon Bay. The ancient temples in the mountains make the beautiful landscape more ancient and secluded.

In summer, beautiful scenery and cool climate make it a good place for summer tourism. And in winter, there is an Ice Lantern Festival which attracts thousands of visitors to appreciate the ice lanterns and ice sculptures!
