CHINA, Nanping – The Wuyi Mountains is regarded as among China’s most spectacular mountain ranges, offering visitors a chance to soak in unparalleled vistas of unspoiled nature. It’s deep canyons, lush forests and alluring waterfalls house a large variety of flora and fauna, creating an idyllic natural paradise.
The mountain range occupies an important place in Chinese culture, being a leading producer of beloved teas such as Da Hong Pao, Tie Luo Han and Lapsang souchong. The close intertwining of tea cultivation and native culture led to the creation of the Tea Picking Opera, a humorous performance depicting everyday life that strongly reflects the rural nature of Hakka culture.
