Hongyuan Wonderland is one of famous scenic spots and forest parks in Jiangxi province. It is also known as top ten sceneries in Jingdezhen. The park is 50 kilometers away from downtown Jingdezhen, featuring limestone cave landscape. The land was developed as a tourist attraction as early as in Ming Dynasty. It was once bestowed by Yongzheng Emperor (Qing dynasty, 1678—1735) as being lasting and inspiring scenery.
Hongyuan cave is close to the homeland of Hong Hao, a famous minister of Song Dynasty. When he visited Hongyuan cave, he wrote down a line: “Who would have thought the wonderland could be found in the mortal world”, that accounts for the origin of the name“Hongyuan wonderland”.
The cave is more than 2,000 meters long full of stalactites, which sparkle and is scattered in various shapes. The most magnificent and unique sceneries in the cave are flying waterfall, ringing crackers, immortal farmland and sky under the water. Besides, there are more than 200 scenic spots characterized by figures and locations in Chinese fairy tales.
In addition to Hongyuan cave, there are South Star Cave (Nanxing Cave), Fairy Lady Cave (Xiangu Cave), Pearl Cave(Zhenzhu Cave) and Yelling Lion Peak(Shihou Peak)etc. The cave is not only a tourist attraction but also a place for human activities. It was ancient residence for primitive human beings. In Song Dynasty, Hong Hao, then famous minster, built a academy here. In recent years, Sino-American agricultural archaeological team has paid visit to the wonderland for research.
