Wulingyuan is a popular scenic and historic area located in China's Hunan province, although thick smog often obscures what would otherwise be breathtaking scenery.

The UNESCO World Heritage site is distinguished by more than 3,100 quartzite sandstone pillars, some reaching more than 650 ft/200 m high. They are surrounded by streams, brooks, springs and waterfalls. The area is also home to more than 3,000 species of plants and approximately 116 different types of animals.

Wulingyuan is split into four parts, consisting of the Zhangjiajie National Park, the Suoxiyu Nature Reserve, the Tianzi Mountain National Reserve and the Yangjiajie Scenic Area.
