Ningde Global GeoPark is located in Ningde in the northeast of Fujian province in China’s Taimu and Jiufeng mountain ranges. It consists of three scenic areas: Baishuiyang in Pingnan County, Baiyun Mountain in Fuan City and Taimu Mountain in Fuding City. The park is characterized by splendid miarolite mountainous land formations, gorgeous volcanic land formations and a riverbed that leads to waterfalls, deep pools and other costal and island attractions.
