Tianliao Moon World is a tract of barren land between Chongde Village and Gutin Village of Tianliao District. It has a dreary and desolate beauty of desert and is famous for its similarity to the landscape of the Moon surface.

This queer terrain is called "badlands" in geography an adverse landscape caused by the strong erosion of rain and streams over the years due to "rejuvenation" of the earth's crust. The Tianliao Moon World sits in the valley of a small tributary of Erren River and used to have a dam for sediment storage to store water in the rain season. The sight of it was called "yue-jing-nong-tang" (Farm Pond on the Moon). However, the dam (farm pond) has been washed away over approximately a decade of time with the continuous scour of rain. Today, nothing but total desolation is what is left there.

Apart from the eye-catching Chinese-style "Lan-Yue-Lou" (Moon Take Multistory Building) standing in the proximity of the Moon World for visitors to rest and appreciate the sight, there are also Rihyue Temple, Fongyue Temple, Nihuo Spring (fire on mud spring), peculiar scenery, and a camping area for visitors to go.
