Shennongjia Forestry District Hubei China——The stone Hall in Natural Museum
Hubei Province

Shennongjia Forestry District is a county-level administrative unit (a "forestry district") in northwestern Hubei province, People's Republic of China, directly subordinated to the provincial government. It occupies 3,253 square kilometres in western Hubei, and, as of 2007 had the resident population estimated at 74,000.The population is

predominantly Han Chinese, the remaining 5% being mostly Tujia.

Shennongjia Forestry District is named after the Shennongjia mountainous massif, which is usually considered to be the eastern (and the highest) section of the Daba Mountains. It lies within the Daba Mountains evergreen forests ecoregion. Some of Hubei's highest mountains - which are also the highest mountains of the Daba Shan - are located within the district. The three tallest peaks, located west of Muyu town, are Shennong Deng (3,105 metres elevation), Da Shennongjia (3,052 metres , and Xiao Shennongjia (3,005 metres, on the border with Badong County). Laojun Shan, 2,936 metres tall, is located northeast of Muyu.

There are a number of conservation areas in the district's mountains and wetlands, in particular the world-famous Shennongjia National Nature Reserve, listed

on UNESCO's World Network of Biosphere Reserves. The reserve includes 2,618 square kilometres of forest, and, due to a variety of natural conditions at different elevations, has high plant diversity. One survey by Chinese botanists reports 3,479 higher plant species found in a certain area. The protected animal species include Golden Snub-nosed Monkey, whose population in the district was reported to have grown between 1990 and 2005 from 500 to over 1200. A specially protected 100-square-km area is designated for this endangered primate species.
