China's fourth "forest oxygen bar" list, a reference to places with plenty of trees, was recently released including 22 forest parks. CGTN will be reviewing 10 of these listed natural heavens. Today, we take a look inside the Huading National Forest Park in east China's Zhejiang Province.
The Huading National Forest Park lies in the Tiantai Mountain in Tiantai County of Taizhou City. Covering an area of about 187 square kilometers, Tiantai Mountain scenic area is divided into 13 parts with Guoqing Temple, Shiliang Waterfall, Huading Peak among the most beautiful sights.
Huading Peak, the highest peak at the Huading National Forest Park, is 1098 meters above the sea level and is also the main peak of Tiantai Mountain. From an aerial view, Huading and surrounding peaks look like a lotus bud with Huading Peak at the center.
The Shiliang Waterfall is a rare masterpiece of nature. A narrow stone bridge spans two steep cliffs, and the waterfall plummets about 30 meters into a deep pool with a thundering roar, which is a magnificent view indeed. Many Chinese kung fu movies have been filmed here.
The large-scale Yunjin rhododendrons on the mountain are in full blossom in May every year, which is the most exciting time to visit the Huading National Forest Park. Many tourists visit the park to see the splendid spring scenery.
The cheerful rhododendrons in spring, the refreshing weather in summer, the beautiful sunrises in autumn and the snow fairyland in winter make the Huading National Forest Park a fascinating place for tourists all round the year.
