The renowned historical and cultural city of Shaoguan (韶关) lies in northern Guangdong. The fact that the Shixia (石峡) culture thrived here during the Neolithic period proves that the people of this region were already an advanced civilization by that time. Surrounded by mountains, Shaoguan was a strategic military location. The mountainous terrain also makes for some beautiful natural scenery here. In addition, Shaoguan is inhabited by a concentration of minority peoples. The result is an area with highly diverse attractions. Danxia (丹霞) Mountain, a national scenic area; Nanhua (南华) Temple, the birthplace of Nanzong Zen; and the site of the discovery of the “Maba Man” are among the local sights.
