Taining National Geopark, one of the 'top 10 attractions in Fujian, China' by

Taining National Geopark []

Taining Global Geopark is located in Taining County, in the northwestern part of Fujian Province. Covering an area of 492.5 square kilometers (49,250 hectares), the geopark comprises four major scenic areas, Shiwang, Big Golden Lake, Baxian Cliff and Jinrao Mountain, plus a tour to ancient Taining City.

The park has a number of geological formations and is characterized by the Danxia landform, boasting rough granite, volcanic, and tectonic landscapes. Its unique scenery also attracts a large number of foreign visitors. Some man-made features have made the geopark appear even more impressive, for example that of Shangshudi, the most well-preserved Ming Dynasty folk house in southern China.

Taining Global Geopark was listed as a World Geopark by UNESCO in 2005.
