Yangchun Lingxiaoyan National Geopark is located in Yangchun, Guangdong. In March 2004, it was approved by the Ministry of Land and Resources as one of the third group of national geoparks. The geopark has two scenic districts, called Lingxiao and Chunwan, and is dominated by karst landforms. The major attractions include karst caves, such as Lingxiao Cave, Longgong Cave, Kongtong Cave, and Yuxi Cave, and subsurface streams. The Yuxi Fault Escarpment, Longgong Fault Cliff, Beigua Fault Zone, compound folds, and the Dushizai Ancient Human Site are also geological attractions. Its cultural charm lies in the ancient Tongling County and the iron and coin mould relics.
