In this vast country - the third largest in the world - varied climate conditions produce an array of habitat types, from the snowy wastelands of the frigid northeast to the tropical paradises of the far south.
Spectacular scenery - much of it unique - includes breath-taking karst stone forests, multiple columnar peaks, dramatic caves and solitary pines clinging precariously to bare rocky peaks reminiscent of a Chinese ink-brush painting. Heather has had unusual access to little-known parts of China for many years. Over 26 million foreign tourists visited China in 2007, up 17% on the previous year, and the numbers continue to increase.
