Spectacular views from Ma'anshan Forest Park
Situated in an eastern suburb of Wuhan near the Optics Valley of China (OVC), and located within East Lake Ecotourism Scenic Area, Ma'anshan Forest Park is blessed with lush forests, stunning mountains, and large wetlands. The park is known as "the back garden of Wuhan" and is the perfect place to visit during Spring Festival.
The park was founded in 1993 and covers an area of 713 hectares, with its forest coverage rate reaching 80 percent. Ma'anshan, the main park's main peak, is 136.02 meters high and possesses a shape similar to a saddle (which is called "Ma'an in Chinese"), hence its name.
