Stone Buddha

Grotesquely-shapedgranite peak. Stone Buddha, also called Heshangnao (Monk Hillock), lies aboveJiudaogu (Nine-hoop Peak). The peak-forming rock belongs to Late Cretaceous (65Ma) fine-grained biotite moyite. A precipice with several hundred meters inheight is formed due to long periods of spheroidal weathering, denudation,collapse and rainwater scouring, which looks exactly like a Buddha from afarand thus gets its name.
