On the vast and boundless land, the Yadan landform is like an ancient geological epic, telling the traces of time. They are carved into unique residual hills by the wind, making people marvel at the incredible craftsmanship of nature.

The formation of the Yadan landform is inseparable from the combined action of various natural forces such as wind erosion, gully erosion, and gravitational collapse. However, among them, wind erosion is undoubtedly the most important factor. The strong wind is like a pen in the hand of a painter, constantly cutting and peeling, shaping the earth into magnificent images.

In this dry area, the terrain is unique, with strong winds howling and the sound of the wind is mournful, as if it is a call from hell, making people fearful. In addition, local rocks are rich in iron, and strong geomagnetism often causes the compass to malfunction, making direction difficult to distinguish. Therefore, this place is known as the "Devil's City" by people, which is a daunting place.

However, it is this place full of terror and unknowns that has a gentle and beautiful name - "South Eight Immortals". This makes me very confused, which is very different from the terrifying title "Devil's City". After understanding it, I found out that there is also a deeply moving story here.

In the 1950s, a geological exploration team entered this mysterious Qaidam region. There is a group of girls from the south in the team, full of passion and shouldering the responsibility of searching for oil for their motherland, bravely entering this area known as the "Devil's City".

However, the weather is unpredictable. In a sudden storm, they lost their direction and were lost in this vast expanse of wind eroded hills. Food and water sources are gradually depleted, and their physical strength is also gradually depleted. They collapsed one after another on this desolate land.

The exploration team sent people to search everywhere, but could not find the whereabouts of the girls. It was not until a few months later that the bodies of three of the girls were found. And the other five girls disappeared forever in this desert remnant hill. Their youth and dreams were buried under this desolate land.

In memory of these eight brave girls, people named this place "South Eight Immortals" to commemorate their dedication and sacrifice. From then on, the name "South Eight Immortals" was closely linked to this Devil City and became an eternal legend.
