Geological relics resources rich variety, intact, large scale, broad study connotation, for parsing tethys peripheral basin, Qinling orogenic belt (central) and the Sichuan basin, the geological evolution history, and the whole development of the evolution of the Yangtze massif has important scientific significance, studies the Yangzi massif north rim and Qinling orogenic belt, the Longmenshan tectonic transformation relationship between orogenic belt, and continental dynamics and critical areas of karst north-south divide in China. Park humanities has a long history, began in the qin dynasty, ancient rice, prospering in han from Qinba mountains, north integrating ecology of rivers, connected to the central plains of the Yellow River civilization and the southwest Bashu culture, Qin and Han dynasties of the ancient city of peace officer positions MouYang humanities such as historical landscape preservation is good, the weeding gongs, Bashan shadow play, Maoshan, of Bashan back two songs, and many other folk song culture in the inheritance.
