Geology and geomorphology

Tanxi Mountain, located at the intersection of Tai and Yi Mountains, is the representative of the core landscapes of the hills in central Shandong Province. It is mainly characterized by cliffs, waterfalls, clear springs, karst caves, rifts and rocky landforms. Geological landscape is a special landscape formed by tectonism and natural erosion, which has high aesthetic value.

During the process of Himalayan orogeny, Tanxi Mountain formed a series of terrain combinations such as stepped cliffs and deep cut barrier valleys in Cambrian-Ordovician limestone strata. The valleys are deep, with strange rocks, waterfalls and clear springs, and caves. It is of great significance to study the evolution of neotectonic movement and rift valleys.

The special tectonic location and lithological conditions of Tanxi Mountain make the water body and hydrodynamic action of the park develop very well. The waterfalls, streams, springs and pools formed form a beautiful scenic line. The geographical location and topography of Tanxi Mountains have also resulted in the preservation and growth of a large number of tree species with the characteristics of Taiyi Mountains, which can also be called Shandong Wild Plant Specimens Bank. According to statistics, there are more than 9 kinds of natural landscapes, including more than 30 peaks and 10 steep cliffs.
