Mountain Baxian

Last updated by tracyk223 at 2014/5/3

Mt. Baxian National Nature Reserve is famous for its continuous ridges and peaks, boundless forest, deep gullies and running ghyll. Its variety of animals and plants give the Reserve the reputation as the Green Kingdom.

Thirty-five kilometers to the northeast of the county seat and covering 5,360 hectares, the forest reserve is also the gathering place for high mountains and peaks, with 19 peaks rising over 900 meters above sea level. The highest peak, also known as Cricket Cage, is the highest in Tianjin at 1046.8 meters.

With over 95 percent of its area covered by trees, the forest is rare for North China. Scientists believe that Baxian National Nature Reserve is the Xishuang Banna in Tianjin. Legend has it that eight fairies once passed this thickly wooded mountain and were attracted by its beautiful landscape. They stopped for a drink by a rock. This rock came to be called "Baxian Table" and the mountain became known as Mt. Baxian (Eight Fairies).
