Yunqing Terrace, Wulingyuan



I have a number of cards from the Wulingyuan scenic and historic interest area, to give it its full UNESCO World Heritage title.  This one shows the Yunqing Terrace.  The area extends over a large part of Hunan Province in China.  It's not only interesting because of the outstanding scenery, but also because the area has always been remote and inaccessible.  As a result it is virtually untouched and now protected.  It shelters a number of endangered species of plants and animals.



The stamp didn't arrive on the same postcard but does seem to show the same scenery.

This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"

  6. Very mystical landscape. The stamp really captured the "vibe" well. Thanks for sharing!
