Birth of Tianzi Mountain
The Tianzi Mountains took birth from quartz sandstone of 400 million years ago through their irregular rising of the crust for about 2 thousand years. The crust formation is owned to the "New Cathaysian" tectonic system.
About 3 billion decades ago, the place was anenormous part of the ocean. After a number of geological changes including Himalayan and Geotectonic movements, the bottom of ocean mounted out of the surface, and the quartzite sandstone pillars and peaks took form after the gradual cutting, erupting and fragmenting of Nature for millions of years.
The several high sharp stone peaks rising on the ground with sudden four walls and appearing as nothing shorterthan of the secret workings of nature.
