The ranges covers an area of 120,000 square kilometers and provides a natural boundary between the North and South of the country, climatically and geographically. It also supports a huge variety of plants and wildlife, some of which are found nowhere else on Earth.

The mountains are home to various rare wild animals, including 119 mammal species, 345 bird species and 657 species of vertebrates. The phrase, “Four precious species in the Qinling Mountains”, refers respectively to the giant panda, golden snub-nosed monkey, takin and crested ibis. These animals are listed as national first-class protected animals.
