Wuyishan City (Chinese: ?; pinyin: W?yísh?n Shì) is a county-level city in the municipal region of Nanping, in the northwest of Fujian province, People's Republic of China, bordering Jiangxi province to the northwest. It corresponds to the former Chong'an County.[1]

Natural and cultural heritage

A local subsection of the Wuyishan Mountain range, which forms the entirety of the geological and political divide between the provinces of Fujian and Jiangxi, is a front-rank national park called simply Wuyi Mountains. Since 1999 the park zone has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the world's natural and cultural heritage.

Cultural sites within the zone include the original cultivation ground of the Dahongpao tea variety, and a villa retreat used by Zhu Xi, a Confucian revivalist scholar-official of the rump or Southern Song Empire.

South of the zone, just short of the City's border with Jianyang District, is a major archaeological excavation of the vanished State of Yue (Template:Linnktext).

Not far from Wuyishan, the Jiyufang Laolong kiln (), located in a village near the town of Shuiji, has been able to restart production of Jian ware using original clay.[2][3][4]
