Emeishan often referred to as Mount Emei, is one of China’s most revered Buddhist mountains, rising 10,167 feet above sea level. It is situated in the Sichuan Province, close to Emeishan, a county-level city.
In 1996, the park was included in the World Heritage List by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
It has 76 Buddhist monasteries, which serve as a vivid example of the many versatile architectural styles. Long, frigid winters and brief, chilly summers contribute to the region’s cold climate.
There is a lot of precipitation throughout the year, and the summer months see particularly strong downpours. The park is home to various indigenous animal and plant species.
The Li River sometimes referred to as Guilin Lijiang, is situated in the Guangxi Zhuang Province. The distance between Guilin and Yangshuo is 52 miles.
The river rises in Xing’an County’s mountainous mountains and runs south through Guilin, Yangshuo, and Pingle before merging with the Gui and Gongcheng Rivers.
Green slopes and hillsides with karst topography line its path, where anglers fish with aquatic plants called cormorants. It is a popular tourist destination where visitors can cruise on the many boats that Guilin offers.
In eastern China’s Anhui Province, there is a mountain range called Huangshan. The mountain range is renowned for having high mountain ranges that rise above sea level by more than 3250 feet.
The heavenly peak, shining top peak, and lotus peak are some well-known ones. The area’s vegetation’s relationship to elevation is its most remarkable characteristic.
Mesic forests cover the vegetation below 3,600 feet ( a forest with an abundant moisture supply). Most vegetation is deciduous woodland between 3,600 and 5,900 feet, while alpine grassland is found above 5,900 feet (the short evergreen grass species).
It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990.
Jiuzhaigou is a valley of nine Tibetan walled villages in the Sichuan Province of China’s Jiuzhaigou County. With elevations ranging from 6,600 feet to 14,800 feet, it is thought to encompass 278 square miles with 232 square miles of buffer zones.
Before the Chinese government declared the area a national park in 1979, the isolated area saw extensive logging and destruction.
The valley comprises multi-level waterfalls, deep lakes, and snow-capped peaks, which are important tourist destinations in the area and have affected the national economy and the growth of the hotel business.
