|Huaping National Nature Reserve|
Huaping National Nature Reserve, 60 kilometers (about 37 miles) from Guilin, occupies an area of 140 square kilometers (about 54 square miles). As the first natural reserve set up in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, it is established mainly to protect the living fossil, silver firs and the ecosystem of typical evergreen broadleaf forest.
Huaping is worthy of the name 'kingdom of flowers' as flowers blossom all year round. In spring, cherry flowers, camellias, peach blossoms and azaleas vie with each other for glamour; whilst in summer, nandins, lilies and honeysuckles are in a riot of colors. On the other hand in autumn, wild chrysanthemums, sweet-scented acanthuses, oleanders and hydrangeas try to be the first to show off their beauties and in winter, plum blossoms, wild loquats and oil-tea camellias grow vigorously in the wind and frost.
As a paradise for living creatures, there are immense virgin forest, grand waterfalls, steep ridges and attractive dingles in Huaping. It is a must see for nature lovers.
