Jianfengling National Forest Park

Jianfengling was approved by the Ministry of Forestry to establish a national forest park in 1992, making it the only forest park characterized by tropical rainforests in China. It measures about 1,600 hectares, mainly for the protection of tropical virgin rainforests and rare animals such as gibbons and peacock-pheasants. Jianfengling is China's first national tropical rainforest park, with the largest and best-preserved tropical virgin forest in the country. It has a wideand distinctive variety of tropical forest vegetation and abundant wildlife species. In addition to tree ferns (Cyatheales), a living fossil plant from the age of dinosaurs more than 200 million years ago, it is also home to more than 20 nationally protected species that are rare to find. The natural and ecological landscape is original, majestic and wonderful. There is a basin enveloped by mountains to the east of Heiling Ridge in Jianfengling. Shrouded in wreathing clouds all day long, the basin is called "Tianchi" (Heavenly Lake). From the top of the mountain, you can enjoy the "spectacle of four seas", which are the sea of forest, sea of clouds, sea of fog and the real sea.
