Tianxingqiao Scenic Area is 6 kilometers from the lower reaches of Huangguoshu Waterfall and has a planning area of 7 square kilometers, of which 4.5 square kilometers has been developed for tourism.

Tianxingqiao Scenic Area is composed of a natural miniature landscape area, the Tianxing Cave and a water stone forest. The geology of the area is a typical karst land formation and integrates mountains, water reserves, forests, caves, stones and a variety of falls.

Individual limestone blocks and pillars are distinctly elongated and lie parallel to each other. Probably first developed as a covered karst in the subsoil and through strong selective corrosion of the limestone along the joints, they have been exposed only relatively recently.

he Tianxingdong scenic area is actually a huge cave containing various stalagmites and stalactites. Stalactite is icicle-shaped formation of lime hanging from the roof of a cave, formed by the steady dripping of water containing minerals, while stalagmite is formation of lime extending upwards like a pillar from the floor of a cave as water from a stalactite drips onto it.

In one of the halls, you can see bunches of "grapes" hanging from the ceiling, while in another hall some "vegetables" are growing beside your feet. You can see "birds" over your head and "the Great Wall" below you.

Under the colorful lights in the cave, those figures formed by stones look real. There are four high stone pillars in the cave, at least twenty meters high each, tessellated with stone flowers of different types and colors.
