Location: Central China's Hubei province

Total area: 1,170 square kilometers

Shennongjia is situated in the west of the province, not far from the entrance to the Three Gorges. It's part of a number of mountain ranges that close to the Sichuan Basin on its eastern side.

All the mountains are karstic, a kind of lime that turns into a gigantic sponge-like form with cavities that range from the size of your finger to those of caves.
