The forests are inhabited by 207 kinds of animals, with 16 protected as rare animals under the law. Therefore, the area is called "the bank of special genes". The densest forest area is at Dawopu, which is a sea of thick woods.

Magnificent mountains often exist side by side with beautiful bodies of water. In the forest area in Simian Mountain, there are quite a number of streams, waterfalls, lakes and arenaceous red rock topographic features.

The Chaba River and the Feilong River snake their way through the forest area, dividing to form waterfalls, or lying still to form lakes. In the area, there are more than 40 streams and seven lakes. The largest lake is Honghai Lake, consisting of the Greater Honghai and the Lesser Honghai Lake, extending as far as Guizhou province.
