Mount Hengshan is a Chinese 5A-level scenic area, a national natural reserve, and a national key ecological function zone. It has gorgeous landscapes, virgin forest, and abundant ancient and rare trees. It is hailed as the most beautiful among the Chinese Five Great Mountains, and famous for its “Shou (寿, means longevity)” culture. In order to promote green development, Nanyue District balances ecological protection and tourism development. In 2017, an annual ecological event “I have a tree on Mount Hengshan” was initiated, to call for public efforts to build a more beautiful Mount Hengshan. More than ten thousand people participated, and contributed to a sound and sustainable tourism development.
