The Homoclinal Mountain is composed of sandstone and conglomerate sedimentary rock layers of ancient and middle Triassic (230 to 250 million years ago). During the long geological evolution, the upper basement folded and uplifted into a mountain due to the impact of the lower basement, and homoclinal mountains were formed on the folded side. The rock formation of this homoclinal mountain is clear, with an overall inclination of about 15°and a tendency of about 260°. In sunlight, different layers show different shades of color, such as: light red, dark red, deep purple, cyan, light gray, and black, like a rainbow on the peak.
