About Shaoguan

The renowned historical and cultural city of Shaoguan (韶关) lies in northern Guangdong.

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.
