The lush, verdant forest of Ganshan Mountain makes it a perfect recreational retreat for visitors. There are more than 1,500 species of plants, with a 1,000 year old live oak trea, the oldest in China. Over 100 species of wild animals call the park home and have maintained the ecological balance of the park over the years. Distinct seasons can be seen by the changing of the foliage. With a coverage of 95%, the forest has a reputation as being called a "natural oxygen bar."
