Known for its karst landscapes and a 50-hectare canyon, the five-square-kilometer Anlong Limestone Resort is China’s first national outdoor extreme sports park.
Opened in 2016 with an investment of $42 million from the government, it’s hosted various national and international sports events. it offers access to several extreme sports activities including rock climbing, paragliding, cave exploration, kayaking, mountain biking and hiking.
There’s also a via ferrata on the side of a 165-meter-high cliffside, offering breathtaking views of the Haiwei Canyon. The Anlong Limestone Resort Tourist Center sits at the bottom of that canyon.
