The conglomerate terrace by Beinan Creek north to Liji Bridge was formed by plate press and plate rise. The eastern cliff wall of the terrace is highly permeable and was easily cut through by the river. The resulted towering peaks have earned a nickname "Little Huangshan" for its resemblance to Huangshan in China on a much smaller scale. It is also called "Taitung Chibi (Red Cliff)." Little Huangshan presents a rare geographical landscape of world-class in Taiwan.

Like A Chinese Water Colour PaintingThis place is not easily accessible but locals know this as Xiao Huang Shan (or Small Huang Mountain), because it resembles a more well-known mountain in China. As my minsu was near to the Taitung Railway Station, I cycled here taking about 10-15 minutes. Along the way there are no direction signs to this place but i had to depend on my google map to get around (even then, the google map did not identify this spot for me). There is a carpark and small park leading up to this geological attraction. You can't walk right up to this row of hills but from a distance, it is a picturesque sight especially during sunrise, when the rays of the sun beats against the rock formations, creating an image likened to many of the Chinese watercolor paintings of old. At the same spot where I took photos, you can see the sacred Dulan mountain in the distance and Liji Badlands that is not too far away. Suggest to visit both Liji Badlands and Xiaohuangshan in the same cycling trip.
