This is a landscape that is formed by the deposition and accumulation of eroded materials by various geological processes, such as wind-blown sand dunes, moraine banks, alluvial terraces, river islands, alluvial fans and deltas. Accumulation landform landscapes have great tourism value. Examples are the coastal sand dune landscape in the Changli Gold Coast tourist area, Hebei Province, the desert landscapes in NW China and the Gobi landscape.
