It is home to many exotic species of animals, many of which are registered in the Red Book. These include sychuanskiezolotye monkeys. However, the main advantage of this place should not be considered fauna and landscapes.

This, of course, about travertine landscapes formed by thousands of years of processes in which water is flowing from the glaciers seeped into the ground. Gradually formed numerous underground streams, dissolves limestone mountain. Subsequently, he was washed out to the surface, crystallized and froze as bizarre reliefs. That's why so many Haunlune waterfalls, rapids and pools.
