GUIYANG — The legislature in China’s southwestern province of Guizhou passed regulations to further protect Mount Fanjing, a newly-inscribed world heritage site.
Fireworks, barbecue, camping and swimming are banned, the regulations said. Administrations that fail to hire adequate safety staff or install enough safety equipment shall be punished. Tourists who damage the environment shall also be punished.
According to the regulations, the Fanjing Mountain National Nature Reserve and its neighboring provincial-level nature reserves and scenic areas are within the scope of conservation.
Fanjing Mountain was inscribed to the World Heritage List in July at the 42nd World Heritage Committee meeting in Bahrain.
