Shennong Peak Scenic AreaNearby City
Shennong Peak Scenic Area is the core scenic area of the Shennongjia Forestry District. The main attractions in the area include the Shennong Valley, Jinhou (“golden snub-nosed monkey”) Mountain, Yeren (Bigfoot-like “wild man”) Research Station, the alpine rock forest of Banbiyan, and Liaowang (“Lookout”) Tower. Many rare and precious wild animals and plants, including snub-nosed monkeys, live in the pristine alpine meadows, wetlands, and rock forests here. When you get to the top of Shennong Peak, you can enjoy a majestic panoramic view of the land stretching away from the mountain. If you’re lucky, you may even see the “cloud sea” effect.
