Mt.Panyun to be Recognized as Nat'l Geopark

Pub Date:18-03-28 15:31 Source:www.cnanhui.org

Panyun Mountain Geopark in Lingbi county, east China’s Anhui province, passed a state-level check under a procedure for the approval of a national geological park, Anhui Business Daily reported Wednesday citing local authorities.

Located in Yugou township, the 4.25-square-km geopark is compared to a black box that tracks the evolution of the earth in ancient times and a walking textbook of crustal movement.

The geopark features a karst landscape with Lingbi stones and seismites. It consists of two scenic areas : Panyun Mountain and Chongshan Mountain.

The Panyun Mountain is known for the Lingbi stone, one of the four types of famous Chinese Scholar’s Rocks. Various types of the stone found in the area are worth researching, as they reflect different environments.
