This is a geomorphic landscape with aesthetic value that formed as a result of geological processes on the Earth’s surface. These landscapes can be divided into tectonic landform landscapes, rock landform landscapes, volcanic landscapes and glacial landscapes. They can be further divided into several landscape sub-types, such as block mountain landscapes, granite landscapes, clastic rock landscapes, karst landscapes, loess landscapes, sand landscapes, metamorphic rock landscapes, lava landscapes, glacial erosion landscapes, marine erosion landscapes, aeolian landscapes and gravity flow landscapes. Geomorphological landscapes are one of the most important types of tourism resources.
