Yandang moutain
Yandang is a picturesque mountain located along Wenzhou’s coastal line. This mountain is one of the first national landscapes in China and on the top ten most illustrious mountains of the country. Yandang has been discovered since the Southern and Northern Dynasty but its popularity only grew substantially during the Tang and Song Dynasty. Therefore, Yandang is a perfect combination of natural beauty and diversified cultural value.
Originally, Yandang is an ancient volcano with typical rhyolite tectonics created 120 million years ago. Hence, Yandang will give you the opportunity to mingle with the natural beauty of steeps and pointy pinnacles, mountain sides with verdant forests, bamboo forests, crystal clear stream, waterfalls and absolutely superb caves. What is more, inside those beautiful caves, there a multiple of temples built a long time ago.
Lingfeng mountain top, Lingyan rocks and waterfall Dalongqui are the places that attract many visitors.
To appreciate this spectacular wonder, in 2004, the government makes Yandang become Chinese National Geoparks and in 2005, it honorably became a member of World Geoparks.
