Six Chinese sites named UNESCO Global Geoparks

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has designated six Chinese geoparks, including Mount Changbaishan Geopark, as Global Geoparks. This brings the total number of geoparks in the UNESCO Global Geoparks network to 213 across 48 countries. Mount Changbaishan Geopark, located in Jilin Province, showcases dramatic landforms and diverse rock types resulting from significant volcanic activity, including the millennium eruption around 1,000 years ago, one of the largest volcanic eruptions in modern history. The other newly designated geoparks include Enshi Grand Canyon-Tenglongdong Cave Geopark in Hubei Province, Linxia Geopark in Gansu Province, Longyan Geopark in Fujian Province, Wugongshan Geopark in Jiangxi Province, and Xingyi Geopark in Guizhou Province.
