A Letter to Students

Dear friends:

Welcome to Tianzhushan World Geopark. You must have heard of the park. This is a special letter which will surprise you on opening it. When you finish reading, I’m sure you’ll see there’s so much more to Tianzhushan than you realised. The Tianzhushan World Geopark is located at a latitude of 30 °North where many mysterious geological events have occurred. Here, you can enjoy magnificent granite landforms,  of which the caves shaped by rocks breaking down and piling up are the most famous. Exploring them, you can picture the scene of the raging magma intruding the earth’s crust along the cracks 100 million years ago. Also , you can imagine the process of the underground granite rising to the earth’s surface. And you can appreciate nature’s magnificent artwork

There is also the famous Dabieshan ultra-high pressure metamorphic belt. The rocks were buried hundreds of kilometers underground and they recorded the mystery of the earth’s evolution over hundreds of millions of years, which you can now discover.

Tianzhushan is also known as “ A treasure trove of Paleovertebrate fossils” and “ one of the birthplaces of Asian mammals”. A number of vertebrate, reptile and mammal fossils have been found here. Do you know who the ancestors of mice and rabbits are? You can find the answer here.

Tianzhushan is not only rich in magnificent natural landscapes but also in history and culture.

It is the birthplace of Huangmei Opera, The Tale of Seven Fairies, and Beijing Opera. It is where the longest narrative poem Peacocks Flying Southeast and the story of the Qiao Sisters took place. Literati such as Li Bai, Bai Juyi, Su Shi, Wang Anshi, and Huang Tingjian lingered in the beauty of Tianzhushan, and they left over 400 stone inscriptions here, renowned across the province. 

Notable figures such the master of Beijing Opera, Cheng Changgeng, the novelist Zhang Henshui, the queen of acrobatics, Xia Juhua, and Huangmei Opera’s contemporary artist, Han Zaifen all come from here.   

In addition, Doumu pottery can take you back 6000 years. You can appreciate the complexity and rigour of the crafting process and also make some pottery yourself to experience it first hand. Art imitates life and here it even supplants it

I bet you can’t wait to travel around Tianzhushan after finishing this letter. We have also prepared a surprise for you here!
