Background
A legend goes that Shennong, Emperor Yandi, once erected a hatch at a beautiful and mysterious place to gather medicinal herbs, and this place was later named Shennongjia.

Shennongjia consists of a group of mountains and hills in the western part of Hubei Province and between the Yangtze River and the Hanshui River. Shennongjia is famous for its high mountains. At Shennong Peak, the main peak, there is snow, storm, cloud and mist, as well as shooting stone forest and ground covered with mosses all year round, which constitute a perfect picture of primitive scenery. The mountain slope is divided into three levels: the lower level is the green bamboo belt, the middle level is the dark green fir belt, and the upper level is the bright azalea forest belt with bright and adorable flowers. Shennongjia is also famous for its gorges and valleys. The numerous gorges and valleys, with streams running at the bottom, form a flawless painting of the mountain and water. Shennongjia, with beautiful scenery, is also called a "green treasure house" and a "forest park". Here roam hundreds of rare, precious and strange animals, grow such trees as dove trees and bare firs in the primeval forest, under Grade 1 State Protection and also golden monkeys, deer and whitened animals such as white bears and white turtles. As a state-level forests and wildlife reservation, Shennongjia is called the "amiable home of man and the nature" with its unique mountains, rivers and valleys, abundant animal and plant resources as well as numerous mysterious natural phenomena.
