Dajiuhu Lake Wetland Park 1 Shennongjia Hubei China——Alpine swamp wetland
China

Shennongjia is located in the northwest of Hubei Province, which is bounded by Mountains series. Legend has it that in ancient times Shennongshi once tasted many kinds of herbs to find out the ones of medical value and used them to cure people of different diseases; because of the lofty mountains and hazardous passes, he built ladders for people to gather medicine herbs...  Later, people named the place Shennongjia to commemorate Shennongshi

As directly under the jurisdiction of Hubei Province, Shennongjia forest area, with total area about 3250 sq. km, is the single region in the name of ‘forest area’. The forest fraction of coverage is 69.5%. It borders on Xiangfan, Shiyan, Yichang, and Wanxian County of Chongqing City. The ridge extends from southwest to northeast. Shennong Peak, 3105.meters in altitude, is named "the first peak of Central China ". The inner part of mountain area is covered by dense woods which seem to be isolated from the outer world. Not only is the scene of primitive society preserved well but also the source of plants and animals is rich. In 1990, Shennongjia is listed as a member of Man and Biosphere Program by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. In 1995, Shennongjia is also listed as "biodiversity conservation demonstration" by WWF.

There are more than ten famous attractions in its forest area , such as Partition Rock, Nine Great Lakes, Xiangxiyuan, Xiaodangyang, Tianmenya, Swallow Ya, Songluo River and many marvelous natural spectacles, such as Cold hole, Hot hole, and Tidewater hole and so on. The most attractive is the discovery of ‘uncivilized man’. It is said that there are more than two hundred persons who have seen the appearance of ‘uncivilized man’ in the area, which makes Shennongjia more mysterious. Shennongjia is the only green area well preserved not only in the inland of China but also in the middle latitude zone of the world. Shennongjia, the last well preserved subtropical forest zone ecosystem in middle latitude zone in the world, is the most characteristic and monopolized traveling resource.

A panorama taken on July 7, 2014 shows the Dajiuhu Lake in the Dajiuhu Lake Wetland Park, Shennongjia Natural Conservation Region of Hubei province. Located in the southeast region of Shennongjia, Dajiuhu Lake is the largest and highest wetland in central China. It is surrounded by mountains and a total of nine different lakes are connected by a flowing stream. The nine lakes compose the Dajiuhu Lake, which means “nine big lakes” in Chinese.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
