   Xiangxi Geopark is located in Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in Hunan Province of China, covering a total area of 2,710 km2.The geopark lies on the marginal slope in the east of Yunnan-Guizhou Karst Plateau. It is noted for the two GSSPs in the Cambrian system- the GSSP for Guzhangian Stage and the GSSP for Paibian Stage. The geopark also features some geosites, including the world's largest red carbonate rock Stone Forest and spectacular plateau incised platform-canyon group. These geosites are complemented by many other typical geological phenomena, such as typical geological tectonic events, the paleoglacier climate events and paleontological relics, which completely record the evolutionary history of the Yangtze Platform and the incision, fragmentation and disintegration process at the edge of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau. The geopark's traditional ethnic minority culture perfectly combines with the natural ecology of platform-canyon to form a beautiful and harmonious living environment. The geopark has created a mysterious and unique ethnic cultural ecosystem in the Wuling mountainous area, which has attracted tourists from all over the world. A detailed introduction of Xiang Geopark is provied at the website

   With the establishment of sister geoparks between Zhangjiajie UGGp and Xiangxi Geopark, the two geoparks will organize a series of mutual communications and learning on the effective approaches for geopark development and managment in a fixed or flexible time. In addition, cooperation, commuinication and mutual visits will be strengthened, particularly on the aspects of scientific communications, geological investigations, science popularization and education, sustainable development, so-sharing of scientific research results, staff training, and tourism markets development. By conducting these cooperations, the two geoaprks will be developed into the first-class ones and can achieve a more bright future.
