Yandangshan Introduction

Mt. Yandangshan Global Geopark is located in Zhejiang Province in China, which covers an area of 294.6 square kilometers.
Mt. Yandangshan is a natural park based o­n its geological landform of Cretaceous volcanic rhyolite. The geoheritage in the Park is referred to as a typical example of the formation and evolvement mode of reviviscent caldera o­n the edge of Asian Plates in late Mesozoic. From the Geoheritage, we can see the complete geo-evolving process of the eruption, subsiding and reviviscent apophysis of volcanoes. The Geoheritage provides a permanent sample for studying the volcanoes in Mesozoic. After the process of fracturing, cutting, and rising by the force of nature, the structure of the Caldera is presented before our eyes. The Caldera works as a natural museum to explore the structure of the edge of Asian Plates, the function of magma, and the inner geology. It also serves as the most typical field experimental site where the Cretaceous caldera is studied and a base for popularizing the knowledge of earth science for the youth as well.
The peculiar landscape of Mt. Yandangshan endows with poets, painters and litterateurs with strong aesthetic feeling and inspiration. More than 5 thousand poems were created since the Tang and Song Dynasty. Over 30 historical books or travel notes were written to describe its natural scenery, ecological environment and culture. There are more than 400 spots where you can appreciate cloud-kissing cliffs and carved stones combining literature, calligraphy and stone inscription art. The history of quarrying of Changyudongtian also gestates developed stonework, represents local craftsmen's understanding of characters of the lavas in Mt. Yandangshan and super stone-carving level, and creates colorful stone culture.
The outstanding scientific value, beautiful and unique natural landscape and the buildup of landscape culture for a long history make it peculiar among the similar relics. Mt. Yandangshan belongs to China and to the world as well.
