Downstream 6 kilometers from the Huangguoshu Waterfall, Tianxingqiao Scenic Area is another famous tourist site in Anshun. The area has three adjoining sections: Tianxing Cave, Tianxing Miniature Garden, and Stone Forest on Water. The area’s geology is a typical karst landform and integrates mountains, water reserves, forests, caves, stones and various falls.

Individual limestone blocks and pillars are distinctly elongated and lie parallel. Probably first developed as a covered karst in the subsoil, and through selective solid corrosion of the limestone along the joints, they have been exposed only relatively recently.

The Tianxing Cave holds plenty of naturally formed stalactite pillars, stalagmites and lime plates. With clusters of stone flowers, four large steles are more than 20 meters tall each and reach the top of the cave. Colorful stalagmites and lime plates are fantastic in shape and decorate the shelter as a magnificent banquet hall.

Tianxing Miniature Garden and Stone Forest on Water can be taken as a whole. Here, the small streams environ numerous grotesque rocks and form many crystal lakes, which look like many stone forests on water. They offer a breathtaking view of the stone garden.
