Delegates from Yandang Mountain UNESCO Global Geopark Visits Zhangjiajie Geopark

On August 24th, delegates from Yandang Mountain UNESCO Global Geopark, a sister geopark of Zhangjiajie UNESCO Global Geopark visited Zhangjiajie Global Geopark and experience was  shared and cooperation planned on each geopark’s management, geoheritages conservation, sustainable economy and community development, and science popularization.

Zhangjiajie Geopark was selected as a member of Global Geoparks Network (GGN) in 2004 and the landscape in the geopark is dominated with more than 3000 peaks and pillars of quartz sandstone, which are rare in the world for their large number, height and fairly pure composition. It is also the home to a number of endangered plants and animal species because the natural ecosystems in the geopark are well preserved. Yandang Mountain UNESCO Global Geopark was selected as a member of GGN in 2005. The geopark is characterized mainly with the geological landscapes of Mesozoic volcanic rocks. Covering an area of 298.8 square kilometers, the geopark is composed of three parts, respectively are Mt. Yandang Mountain (main geo-area), Square Mountains – Changyudongtian (eastern geo-area) and Nanxijiang (western geo-area). To share experience, to undertake cooperation in multiple fields, and to boost the development of two geoparks and scientific research, two UNESCO global geoparks officially signed a sister agreement in 2015 at Yandang Mountain.

During the visit, the delegates were stunned by the amazing landscapes in Zhangjiajie Geopark, and spoke highly of Zhangjiajie Geopark’s management, resources conservation, and science popularization. They also shared their experience on global geopark reassessment from UNESCO, including materials submission, on-site questions, and details on reception. In 2014, Zhangjiajie Global Geopark won “Green Card” for a four-year member of GGN and in 2018, Zhangjiajie Geopark will be reassessed by the UNESCO. Zhangjiajie is preparing for the reassessment right now and so the experience of Yandang Mountain UNESCO Global Geopark is very precious and helpful.
