Tangwanghe National Park, in northeastern China’s Lesser Hinggan Mountains, will serve as a pilot park for a national park system.
While there are hundreds of nominal national parks in China, they function more like national historic and scenic spots.
Tangwanghe National Park will also focus on scientific research and environmental protection education. The area is notable for its extensive virgin forests of Korean broadleafed pines and ‘geological relics’ unique to China. Vegetation covers approximately 99.8% of the park.
Let us hope and pray that those monstrous mobile holiday homes called Winnebagos which so bedevil American national parks are never seen in China.
