Guilin Qifeng Town
On boat rafting downstream from Jingping Hill, on the river bank of the Xiangsijiang River, a tributary of the Li River, near Daxu town, you can see a range of hump peaks rising steeply, which is famed as the 'Forest of Odd Shaped Peaks'. The towering peaks point into the sky and the scene is imposing. Ancient people named the town among these peaks Qifeng Town (Town of Odd Shaped Peaks). It is a fine example of the fantastic karst landform. 
About several hundred million years ago, this area was a boundless ocean, only dotted with a few pieces of land. At the bottom of the ocean, vast limestone areas accumulated which were several thousand meters deep. The diastrophism resulted in many folds and ruptures in the deposit terrain. For thousands of years the rainwater permeated into these crevasses, dissolving calcium carbonate contained in the limestone. The ground became bumpy and various grotesque peaks rose.
