"According to scientific research, the "big porphyry" located in Fengkai National Geopark, Guangdong, was formed during the Mesozoic earth orogeny more than 200 million years ago. It was originally an oceanic volcanic eruption zone basin. The volcanic basalt was formed. Due to the uplift of the continental block, the "sea" had withered early, but the "stone" has stood still today. It seems to be an eternal vow, and it is like a greeting from the vicissitudes of life for hundreds of millions of years. This geological wonder of "one stone becomes a mountain". From a distance, the "big porphyry" is like a hemispherical granite body, 191.3 meters high, 1350 meters long, and 695 meters wide. Scientists estimate that the outcropping part is only one-tenth of the overall rock mass, and nine-tenths of the rock mass is buried deep underground, supporting the landform of the entire geopark. Ascend to the top of the mountain from the right side of the boulder. Standing on the top of the boulder, looking at the white horse (mountain) on the left, and the kylin (mountain) on the right, there is a pastoral and green field in front of you. The hiking trail only reaches the middle of the mountain, and there is a section to the top of the mountain that needs to be climbed by bare hands. Some cliffs are more steep. You must be very careful and don't take risks if you are not sure. Not far from the big porphyry, there is another important scenic spot in the geopark-the Qian layer peak scenic area (about 10 kilometers), which retains the intact landform of the Devonian 300 million years ago. The side reveals and demonstrates the formation of the big porphyry Geographical conditions.
