At the strategic crossroad of Fujian and Guangdong, lofty Wushan Mountain extends miles through Zhaoan, Yunxiao, Pinghe and Changshan. Wushan is about 900 square kilometres in area. Its highest peak is 1117 meters above sea level. During the war years, the Communist Party’s Special Committee of Fujian and Guangdong and the local Communist Party’s Committee of South Fujian were both located in this mountainous area.
Wushan is a national forest park. Its distinctive geographic features include steep cliffs, unfathomed caves, broad valleys, queer rocks, clear streams, dense forests, and mystic mists. In this area, granite rocks have been carved by time of thousands of years into various shapes of columns, blocks, eggs, grottos, furrows, and valleys broad or narrow. Wushan has also a Heavenly Pond. Look from afar, the crystalline green water in the pond turns it into a string of emerald adorned the peaks of Wushan Mountain, while the lingering mists and clouds help to create a wonderland. Wushan has been a solid base for revolutionary traditions. It is now a classic red tourist destination for the existence of more than ten historical revolutionary sites.
