Located on the Guangxin River in Xinghua Town, Fengkai County, Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province, the large porphyry rock formed from one stone is known as "the best stone in the world". The texture on the stone is from top to bottom, which is not only elegant, but also shows us the magical power of nature. This is not only a good place for tourists to play, but also the first choice for rock climbers. Here you can see the fascinating natural scenery and the unsophisticated rural life.
Fengkai "Big Porphyry" is located in Banshi Village, Xinghua Town, 48 kilometers away from Fengkai County, Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province, in the ancient Guangxin River, in the National Geological Park.
The "big boulder" is "a mountain with one stone" and stands tall. It is a hemispherical granite body with a height of 191.3 meters, a length of 1350 meters, a width of 695 meters, and a circumference of 4100 meters. It covers an area of 1101 acres. It looks like a mountain rising from a distance in the fields.
Looking at the porphyry from the distance, the natural texture from top to bottom, like a waterfall roaring down from the top of the rock, is a spectacle. When I approached, I stood under the boulder and looked up. What is particularly amazing is that my child and I walked along the foot of the boulder for a long time, but we couldn't find a gap.
Not long ago, I just watched the video album of "Geographic China" about "big porphyry": According to expert research, "big porphyry" was formed in the Mesozoic era more than 200 million years ago. It was formed by lava from volcanic eruption. Due to the stability around Fengkai , Superior geographical conditions, despite hundreds of thousands of years of vicissitudes of life, rain and sun, the rock mass of porphyry remains intact and seamless today, and the outer surface is almost weatherless. According to experts’ calculations, the part of the big porphyry outcropping the ground is only between 10% and 20% of the entire rock mass. The huge rock mass is still buried deep underground, so even after hundreds of millions of years, it still supports the porphyry as a mountain. ".
Compared with the large porphyry, the Australian Ayers "redstone", known as the "world's first stone", has long been covered in crevice caves, and it looks very old. The life cycle of the large porphyry stone is still in the "mature age", so it is well-deserved "the world's first stone." Therefore, if you have the opportunity, you must come.
Visitors can climb to the top of the mountain from both sides of the porphyry rocks. The mountains are full of lush forests and wild flowers. Standing on the top of the boulder, looking at the white horse (mountain) on the left, and the kylin (mountain) on the right, the idyllic and green fields in front of the terraces and rows of rice paddies make people feel the lingering world and endless reverie.

Opening hours: all day
Recommended reason: geological miracle, the largest rock in the world, a good place for self-driving parents and children.
The largest rock in Asia, known as a mountain of stone, it is very magnificent when viewed from a distance on the provincial road. There is a large green plant on the top of the mountain, making the whole stone rich in color. There used to be scenic management here. Many years ago, I came here to photograph man-made facilities such as giant chessboards and altars. You can also climb the stone steps to the top of the mountain, but now it is deserted. Usually, you only come here for appearance or even car viewing.
Worth a visit, tickets have been cancelled. The stone is very large, 1 km long, and 1 km thick. It seems to be several hundred meters high. Anyway, it is very tall and very high. It is a mountain with one stone. Those who are interested in geology and photography can stay here for a few days and feel life! The scenic area is now almost deserted and there are very few tourists. There is a stone step ladder on the right hand side of the stone to climb to the top. Just ask an indigenous person to know. The villagers are extremely harmonious and hospitable. At the summit, pay attention to prepare enough water and dry food. There is no place to eat and shop in the scenic area!
Go back to my hometown with my friends, passing by the scenic spots, do not need tickets, very natural scenic spots, has not yet been developed, looks very majestic, but there is really nothing to play, you can not climb the mountain
