The Sanqingshan UNESCO Global Geopark is located in the territory of Shangrao City, Jiangxi Province, in southeast China. The natural beauty of Mount Sanqingshan derives from the juxtaposition of granite stone and vegetation in a landascape that is ever changing visually due to meteorological factors. The history of Sanqingshan, one of the birthplaces of Taoism, dates back more than 1,000 years. It retains 238 Taoist relics and other important emblems of cultural heritage such as ancient academies, dwellings, a theatre, monumental halls and more. The region, largely inhabited by the Han people and the She ethnic group, is home to traditions like Gan Opera, Madeng Drama, and the Hetangjiu Banquet.
