The valley is 17 kilometers wide from east to west and 26 kilometers long from south to north. The deepest point of the Daduhe Grand Valley is more than 2600 meter, which is one time deeper than Three Gorges (sān xiá 三峡), and 860 meters deeper than Grand Canyon in Colorado. With arduous cliffs and peaks erecting high to the sky and rivers and streams are going across each other in the bottom, the valley is gorgeous.

In hundreds of thousand years, the flowing Dadu River (dà dù hé 大渡河) is like a huge sharp saw slicing the rocks and stones at the bottom of the valley, makes the valley much deeper and wider. On both banks of the valley, there are the well-preserved rock formations, in which there are the fossils of the ancient organisms. The rock formations are like a vivid geology book, which records the evolution process of the living things within this area.
