This landscape is composed of flowing water in an underground karst cave, which is typically located in a carbonaceous rock region. The underground channel is called a ‘dry underground river system’ when it is composed of dry underground river channels and their tributaries. These features can form an underground river tourism landscape for people to tour and appreciate. Examples are the Dragon Palace underground river and the Benxi water cave in Guizhou Province.
