Guangdong Guanyin Mountain National Forest Park, located in Zhangmutou Town of Dongguan City, is the first national forest park of Dongguan authorized by the Bureau of Forestry of China. With a gross area of 18 square kilometers and the forestry coverage rate above 99%, it is a comprehensive scenic spot integrating ecological sightseeing, entertainment, bodybuilding and religious and cultural tourism. It is titled “Holy place of South China and the secret territory of Hundred Canton”. In October of 2006, Guangdong Guanyin Mountain National Forest Park was established as the second “model foundation of international ecological traveling” in China by the International Eco-Safety Cooperative Organization of UN.
Guanyin Mountain has a long history, quiet environment, pretty view and clear air, in which rare birds and strange beasts appear with various flowers and other unfamiliar plants being seen everywhere. Grandly seated on top of this mountain, with a height of 33 meters and a weight of more than 3,000 tons, stands the most colossal granite Guanyin Buddhist sculpture. It is a rare stone art sculpture masterpiece in the style of the prosperous Tang Dynasty. It is gigantic, grand, skillfully-sculpted, elegant and vivid. In the park there is an International Exhibition Center of 50,000 m2, a large-scale exhibition hall of 12,000 m2 and a comprehensive stage of 600 m2, all of which make it the best place for all kinds of exhibitions and activities. The Ancient Tree Museum of Guanyin Mountain in the park is the first ancient tree museum in China. It has a collection of more than 50 recently-unearthed ancient trees of great research and appreciative value. It is titled “Popular Science Education Foundation” of the first batch of Dongguan and “Guangdong Province Youth Science Education Foundation” successively.
