Tiantangzhai Scenic Spot

    Tiantangzhai Scenic Spot, located in the southwestern part of Jinzhai County, is a nation-level forest park, geological park, nature protection area and a 5A-level tourism resort. It was called a “Cloudy Mountain” in the ancient times because it is enveloped in clouds and mists throughout the year. Here stands one of the major peaks of Dabie Mountains with an altitude of 1,729.13 meters, which was historically hailed as the “First Southeastern Gate for Wu Kingdom and Chu Kingdom”. There are 108 waterfalls in the scenic spot, 18 of which have a fall of more than 50 meters. The national forest park, also known as a “natural oxygen bar”and “the last primeval forest of eastern China”, posts a forest coverage rate of 96.5 percent. At the foot of the mountain, there is a household longevity village—Nanhe Village, where visitors can immerse themselves in the dotted ancient dwellings and folk customs.

  

    The tourism development of Tiantangzhai Scenic Spot is based on the philosophy of preserving the primitive ecological system first and fostering a tourism resort integrating mountains, waterfalls, valleys and cultural heritages step by step. The cableways stride over three mountains and two gullies and offer visitors a thrilling experience. The Geological Museum teaches tourists intuitive knowledge about the land formation process. In the Frontline Headquarter of the Red Army led by Liu Bocheng and Deng Xiaoping, the hard but glorious revolutionary history is vividly displayed to visitors and brings them the awareness of the hard-earned peace. It is exciting and challenging to ascend the White Horse Trestle which is carved on bold cliffs and overlooks a cluster of mountains. Besides, people can slide over the valley and steal a look at the scenery below in the air through the ziplining.  

 

   After many years’ construction and management, Tiantangzhai Scenic Area has become the first choice for leisure tourism and theme education, and has been awarded many provincial and municipal levels of honors and titles in the recent years. It have received nearly 200 million visitors with an average annual growth of 20 percent and generated about 100 million yuan comprehensive revenues since 2004.
