Wangmangling scenic area celebrates majesty of nature
If you are looking for a place to admire an intoxicating selection of nature's majesty then Wangmangling scenic area -- in Jincheng city, North China's Shanxi province -- is a must-see destination.
Wangmangling scenic area is located at the south end of the Taihang Mountains and covers an area of more than 150 square kilometers.
At its highest point is climbs more than 1,700 meters and at its lowest point it falls into the territory of Huixian city in Henan province, which is only about 300 m above sea level.
Wangmangling features natural landscape including stunning rugged mountains and waterfalls.
It also has a canyon called Xiyagou, which is said to be as spectacular as the Grand Canyon of Colorado. At its widest point the canyon stretches more than 200 m across, while the narrowest section is only a few meters wide.
Another highlight is a precarious 7.5 km-long road which was excavated from the cliff over a 30-year period.
