“Mountains are gifts from the nature to which our hearts belong. Embracing the mountains is a way of life while protecting the mountains is a social responsibility.” In order to further protect mountain ecosystems and promote civilized camping, the All-China Environment Federation, the (China) Mountain Tourism Alliance, the China International Camping Congress, and the Jinhua Shuanglong Scenic Area Management Committee jointly issued the “No Littering, Beautiful Mountains” initiative to the public.

Thanks to its rich camping resources and excellent natural conditions, the camping industry in Jinhua Mountain has flourished in recent years. According to a research report from the CMA Public Meteorological Service Center, Jinhua Mountain boasts unique meteorological conditions, excelling in various indicators such as climate comfort, low meteorological risks, oxygen balance index, and beautiful sky. With the highest proportion of days with comfortable weather conditions throughout the year, it is a favorite destination for camping enthusiasts. At this congress, Jinhua Mountain was officially designated as China’s first pilot meteorological service site for mountain camping. By providing precise meteorological services for tourism, efforts are being made to enhance the disaster prevention and reduction capabilities and tourism security of Jinhua Mountain, with a view to improving visitors’ experience.
