Mount Yandang Shan Global Geopark is located in Zhejiang Province in China, which covers an area of 294.6 square kilometers. The Mount Yandang Shan is a natural park based on its geological landform of Cretaceous volcanic rhyolite. The geoheritage in the Park is referred to as a typical example of the formation and evolvement mode of reviviscent caldera on the edge of Asian Plates in late Mesozoic. From the Geoheritage, we can see the complete geo-evolving process of the eruption, subsiding and reviviscent apophysis of volcanoes. The Geoheritage provides a permanent sample for studying the volcanoes in Mesozoic. After the process of fracturing, cutting, and raising by the force of nature, the structure of the Caldera is presented before our eyes. The Caldera works as a natural museum to explore the structure of the edge of Asian Plates, the function of magma, and the inner geology. It also serves as the most typical field experimental site where the Cretaceous caldera is studied and a base for popularizing the knowledge of earth science for the youth as well.



Wenzhou City

Wenzhou is a prefecture-level city in southeastern Zhejiang province of the People's Republic of China. Wenzhou was a prosperous foreign treaty port, which remains well-preserved today. It is situated in a very mountainous region and, as a result, have been isolated for most of its history from the rest of the country, making the local culture and language very different from those of neighbouring areas. It is also known for its emigrants who leave their native land for Europe and the United States, with a reputation for being enterprising natives who start restaurants, retail and wholesale businesses in their adopted countries.
