About Taining

Taining County is located in northwest Fujian, to the southeast of the Shanling Mountains that branch off from the center of the Wuyi range. The Taining Global Geopark is the collective designation for all the county's danxia scenery (a red rock cliff landform unique to China). This comprises the scenic areas of Dajin Lake (“Big Golden Lake”), Baxian Cliff (“Eight Divinities Cliff”), Jinrao Mountain (“Gold-Rich Mountain”), and Taining Ancient City. Taining was once the military command center of China’s revolution and is one of China’s “Hundred Classic Red Tourist Areas.”

Shangqing Rivulet
4.4/5
509 Reviews
River
Shangqing Rivulet is scenic and quiet. The Chongji-Changxing section of the rivulet is located in among tall mountains and deep canyons, with streams squeezed by red cliffs into bending curves. The waterway is very narrow and only two boats can pass through at the same time. People are rarely seen around the rivulet. It is a heavily forested place and for dozens of kilometers the surrounding regions have retained their primitive state. Shangqing Rivulet now offers bamboo rafting throughout a year.
