That makes Qingyuan county in Lishui the south gate of Baishanzu National Park. When you come to Qingyuan, you must visit Baishanzu.
Baishanzu sits at an altitude of 1,856.7 meters and is the second-highest peak in Zhejiang province. The scenic spot has rich biological resources, varied vegetation, special geographical conditions and complex landforms, which all form its unique natural landscape.
