Yadan Landforms were superlatively marvelous with different size of areas, and varied forms of topography. You will find varied land structures here like animals, personal images, pagodas, temples, buses and boats. The grand outlooks of the Yadan Landforms were accumulated by the clay after many floods in addition to rains and storms for long time and here once were the lower reaches of Shulehe River in the ancient times. It will be possible that after a number of years the landforms slowly disappear.
