This scenic spot is located in Linjiawan Village of Hepu Township of Luotian County, the Main Peak Park Area of Dabie Mountain, with an elevation of 181m and an area of 1.5km2. It belongs to structural geomorphologic landscape. Baizhangya Glacial Mortars are distributed on the riverbed and rocky coast on both sides, characterized by the small opening, large width and flat bottom. The maximum diameter can reach 7.3m. The academic circles still have disputes on the causes of its formation and some geologists think that the caves on the riverbed are the potholes formed due to water flow erosion but not the real glacial mortars.
