China, People's Republic of
The Committee inscribed the core zone (first class, second class and third class conservation sections) of this site on the World Heritage List and encouraged the efforts of the Chinese authorities to manage the buffer zone for conservation objectives and maximise the natural characteristics of the site. The Committee noted that pressure due to tourism is likely to increase and urged the management to be vigilant and protect the integrity of the site. The Committee recommended that the Chinese authorities prepare a species conservation status report in order to study the possibility of proposing that the site may also qualify under natural heritage criterion (iv).
