Leiqiong Geopark

Leiqiong Geopark in Haikou, Hainan China Leiqiong (雷琼) Haikou Crater Cluster World Geopark lies in southwest Haikou City, merely 15km from Haikou downtown. The Park gives a great insight into the early formation of Hainan Island. It covers 180 square kilometers and consists of over 40 Quaternary volcanoes with a number of lava landscapes and some 30 volcanic caves. Shishan (石山) is one of the dormant volcano clusters erupting about 10,000 years ago, which is rare in China. It has unique geographic landscape and rich geological resources (Spa and hot waters)

The eruption of the ancient Qiongbei Volcano left the most intact volcano craters here. According to geologists, the last eruption happened about 13,000 year ago. And now, 36 relics of the craters can be seen here. Among them the highest one is the Saddle Hill which is about 222.8 meters up.

Today, the park has the volcano cultural garden, ecological garden, the green corridor, and the crater’s garden, attracting visitors from both home and abroad. Visitors can also enjoy the rustic flavor of the local people, try the country house food, and purchase the local handiworks too.
