The Yandangshan Geopark receives tourists of over 180,000 persons-times during the Mid-autumn Festival and National Day holiday.

Mid-autumn and National Day


During the Mid-autumn Festival and National Day holiday, the Yandangshan Geopark received tourists of 184,500 persons-times, with an increase of 56.43% over the same period last year, which created the highest historical economic and social benefits.
Compared with the past, the number of tourists who drove cars by themselves, traveled with own families and toured for relaxation and leisure increased visibly during this holiday, including the tourists not only from the Zhejiang Province and its surrounding areas but also from the regions in middle and long distances such as the North China and the Shandong, Henan and Sichuan Provinces.

Mid-autumn and National Day


The number of tourists visiting the Yandangshan Geopark reached 10,000 persons-times on the first day of this holiday (the Mid-autumn Festival) when the Geopark was comparatively quiet, continued to increase on October 1, climaxed to 29,000 persons-times per day on October 2~4, and declined to 24,000 and 8000 persons-times respectively on October 5 and 6.
In response to the tourist climax in the Geopark, the Yandangshan Geopark Management Committee strengthened the traffic guidance to dredge cars and tourists, and increased 9 temporary free parking lots and more than 2000 parking spaces in the Geopark. A traffic management team consisting of over 200 policemen, traffic polices, transportation managers, police assistants and public security assurers administered all traffic accesses and main roads in the Geopark in order to avoid the traffic jam. In the same time, a team comprising over 80 student volunteers from the Yandangshan Tourism School offered tourists the consultancy service at each crossing of the Geopark in order to serve tourists better.
