Wanfenglin National Geological Park
When visiting Wanfenglin Peaks Forest, Xu Xiake, a well-known geographer of the Ming Dynasty in China once said that there are so many mountains in the world, but only in here would you find peak forest.
Wanfenglin Peaks Forest, in Chinese meaning a forest of thousands of mountain peaks, is renowned for its rape flower fields and fresh air. Since 2010, people began to grow rape flowers in the scenic zone of Wanfenglin Peaks Forest. The landscape is punctuated with over 20,000 pointed peaks.
Wanfenglin National Geological Park, a national 4-A tourist destination, is characterized by typical diversified Karst basin and range landscape. It consists of two parts-one is East Peaks Forest and another is West Peaks Forest. In the East Peaks Forest, there are rolling peaks where people rarely go, so it remains an original spot. The attraction of West Peaks Forest is its brooks. A meandering brook flows around villages, like a string strings many beautiful pearls. Due to the magnificent scenery, Peak Forest gives people a sense of wonderland.
Visitors will see intensive stretch of mountains. In distance, some mountains have constant rows of peaks and some near you have their own unique formation. Some look like certain animals and some like human beings. Your imagination would fly wildly while you appreciate the picturesque peaks.
Each mountain has a poetic name such as Sleeping Beauty, Bronze Drum Square, Five Fingers Mountain and Ancient Banyan, and so on. Scenery varies according to the weather and season. No matter when you get there, you would get a special experience in Wanfenglin (Nights and heavy rainy days are exceptions.)
