China to build world’s largest national park in XinjiangNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:09 am ICT by admin
The national park is expected to replace America’s Yellowstone National Park, covering an area of about 9000 square kilometres, as the world’s largest park.
The local government has invested over eight million yuan (1.06 million dollars) for the project, reports The China Daily.
The Kanas Geological Park, which is almost a thousand kilometres north of Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, boasts a range of landscapes, including the Kanas Lake, China’s deepest alpine lake, snow-capped mountains and grassland.
The park received 917,000 tourists in the first 10 months this year, a 32 percent growth over the same period of last year. (ANI)
