A number of landscapes in south west of China, collectively known as the Danxia Landform, went on the World Heritage List on Monday, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

The Danxia Landform scatters its natural formed landscapes such as red cliffs, pillars, towers, valleys and waterfalls in six Chinese provinces. These landscapes have helped conserve sub-tropical forests and host many species, of which 400 are considered rare or endangered, according to the UNESCO.

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee Meeting is held until August 3rd. It's considering 39 properties around 33 states to be included in its list. So far, more than two dozens of properties have made to the World Heritage List at the meeting.
