The heritage sites of China Danxia are located in six provinces in South China—Guizhou, Hunan, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Fujian, and Guangdong. While Chishui belongs to the transition zone between the Sichuan Basin and Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, the other nominated properties are all located in the Jiangnan hill region, distributed on both sides along the main ridge of Nanling Mountain and Wuyishan Mountain. Nanling Mountain and Wuyishan Mountain form the topographic skeleton with lower terrain on both sides. They are within an uplifted zone, dating from the Cenozoic.
