The first stop is Fuguangyan Cliff Scenic Area of the main scenic spot of world natural heritage and the first of Danxia in the world( about 2.5h tour time). This scenic area is the largest area, the most exposing, the most perfect and typical preliminary stage development of Danxia landform in China, with deep and steep valleys, vertical and horizontal rivers, and purple and brick red thick lumpy feldspar quartz sandstone of Jiading Group (K2jd), Cretaceous, all of which are red lacustrine sedimentary rocks. Under the combined physical and biochemical actions of vertical X joint, differential weathering, gravity collapse and rain erosion, countless and strange landscapes of Danxia landform are formed, such as Danxia cliffs, strange peaks and stones, cliff galleries and grottos, which are perfect interpretation of “red color like light morning clouds” in the sunshine. Fuguangyan Cliff is a typical representative of the giant Danxia cliffs, with horseshoe-shaped horizontal distribution, the relative height is near 400m, the linear width is about 660m and the arc length is more than 1000m. Then, all visitors leave for Bing’an Town(about 1.5h tour time).Along the suspension bridge,experience the atmosphere of Bing’an Town .

Bing’an is surrounded by Chishui river on three sides. The castle is more than 10m height from the hirst. There is hitherto only waterway to the foot of the castle. Two well-preserved stone gates are besides on the East and West entrances, where there is a vigorous and old Ficus Virens respectively. Many pillar-supported dwellings with a long history are built, along the stone steps of cliff to the beach side, which are set off by green trees and banana trees.

Affected by the Himalayan orogenic movement and the decline of river erosion basis, the original plateau of continuous distribution is constantly disintegrating under the strong action of cutting down by river, which forms abundant single-stage waterfalls of different heights and shapes and the most spectacular multi-stage waterfalls groups in Chishui. There into, Chishui Waterfall is hailed as a typical representative of single-stage waterfall. The sound of waterfall, pouring down from the top of the cliff, likes the sound of horses galloping and thunder.

There are four waterfalls along the riverway of less than 5km, named as Shuilian Cave Fall, Moon Lake Fall, Flying Frog Fall, and White Dragon Pool respectively, with the width of about 40m and the falls drop near 50m. Stream and waterfall tilt down along the way, like strewing flowers from the sky and pearls and jades on the plate, which forms a unique scenery of waterfalls group. Waterfalls are different in shape, such as the new moon streamer, the snake played tricks on the toad, or the colorful falling clouds.
