Shennongjia Nature Reserve - CHINA - UNESCO TENTATIVE
The second card with a UNESCO Tentative site I got from China today shows a beautiful scenery from Hubei in the Shen Nong Jia forest region. According to the sender, it's rumored that there are wild men in this reserve (like from a lost missing link - the Chinese version of the Big Foot myth), many people claims they saw some. Thanks again Heng for this great double swap, hopefully at least one of this sites will be a WHS soon. This postcard took 17 days to arrive!
Shennongjia Nature Reserve in the western part of Hubei Province lies between Daba and Wudang Mountains. Lying between the transitional zone of south-western high mountain and low hilly land of Central China, the Reserve has a total land area of 90,000 ha. The Shennong Crest that has been known to be the first peak of Central China, locates in the middle part of the Reserve with the elevation of 3,105 m.
