Qingyun Mountain in Lingbi county of Anhui province has been recognized as a national geological park.

The Ministry of Land and Resources recently unveiled on its website a list of the seventh batch of state-level geological parks including the Qingyun Mountain Geological Park.

Established in June 2011, the 42-square-kilometer park was selected as one of the provincial level geological parks later that year. The mountain is known for its unusually shaped limestone-created landform and distinctive historical relics like rock carvings dating back to almost 1,000 years ago. Lingbi Stone, dubbed the first among the "Four Famous Stones in China", is abundant in the geo-park.
