This is a type of tourism earth science resource. Based on natural tourism resources, some cultural tourism earth science landscapes and sights have formed due to human activities. Examples are the Yungang Grottoes of Datong, Shanxi, the Dunhuang Grottoes in Gansu, the Maijishan Grottoes in Tianshui, the Longmen Grottoes in Luoyang, the Great Wall, as well as many other inscriptions and carvings. These tourist attractions tend to become a mixture of the cultural, geological and geomorphological aspects.
