almost like another planet

Yehliu Taiwan

Yehliu (Chinese: is a cape on the north coast of Taiwan in the town of Wanli between Taipei and Keelung.
Geological forces at work on Datun Mountain gave rise to the area as the mountain was pushed up from the depths below. With the help of sea erosion and weathering, this area has some very distinctive geological features believed to be 10-25 million years old. As the limestone and calcium carbonate surface is more resistant to erosion, the resulting landscape is fractured and filled with giant rocks, pot holes, and fossils. These rocks make for some breathtaking scenery and certainly worthy of at least a day trip to the cape. Strolling around, one might find themselves wondering whether they just stepped on the set of a sci-fi movie versus a geological park in Taiwan!

BV. Yes, almost like another planet, and an awesome composition with the human making this feeling even more intense.
