Two Chinese Geoparks Enter UNESCO’s Global Geoparks Network
Arxan National Geopark (pictured above) is characterized by its landscape of volcanoes and hot springs and a large variety of lava formations, such as rocks and volcanic crater lakes.
Koktokay National Geopark (pictured above) is well-known for its granite landscapes and an earthquake fault zone. The Global Geoparks Network was established in 1998 with support from the UNESCO.
The network’s goal is to encourage sustainable research and development, as well as international cooperation in geology.
