On November 27, the national sports tourism demonstration zone list was announced at the 2021 China Sports Culture Expo and China Sports Tourism Expo which was held in Guangzhou. The Wulingyuan core scenic area in Zhangjiajie, a world natural heritage site, made the list as the only representative of Hunan Province.

Wulingyuan is China's first national forest park, one of China's first batch of world natural heritage sites, one of the world's first batch of world geological parks, one of China's first batch of 5A-level tourist attractions, and one of national civilized scenic spots. It is a world-famous tourist destination and a resort for sports events.

In recent years, Wulingyuan has vigorously demonstrated its image as a sports tourist attraction, steadily promoted the construction of related facilities, and steadily improved security capacities. The scenic area has leveraged its natural mountain resources to carry out various outdoor cultural and sports events, to make Wulingyuan a major international sports and tourism destination. Domestic and international sports events were held here, including the "China Sports Lottery" mountain outdoor fitness and leisure conference, the Huangshizhai High-altitude Slackline Walking Competition, the National New Year's Climbing Fitness Event, the Mountain Marathon, the First China (Zhangjiajie) Jogging Campaign, and the National Square Dance Competition. These help promoted integrated development of sports and tourism.
