Zhuzhou, which borders Changsha in the north and Mount Hengshan in the south, is the eastern gateway of Hunan Province. Legend has it that Emperor Yan (Shennong in Chinese) once grew crops, tasted all kind of herbal medicines, taught people to plough the fields, and created farming culture - the source of Chinese civilization - in this area. Now Emperor Yan's mausoleum still exists here for Chinese people to worship. Yanling County, known as the "first mausoleum of the divine land", is a Mecca for Chinese people to seek ancestors. The wonderful Danxia landform in Chaling County, the karst caves in the Jiubujiang National Geopark and the ancient biological fossils are all time-honored gifts of great nature. The Xiannong Altar, Lujiang Academy and the former residence of Li Lisan (1899.3-1967.6) remind people of Zhuzhou's revolutionary enthusiasm in the past.

Zhuzhou is also the cradle of electric locomotives, as well as the base of aero-generators, lead and zinc in China. Pottery and porcelain wares produced in Liling County enjoy a high reputation throughout the world, crowned the "top of pottery and porcelain art in the East". Pop into the town – you’re welcome to visit – and take home a unique piece of art or pottery. Thanks to long-term development, a Hongguan Kiln tour in Liling as the representative of this industry has become a highlight of any visit to Zhuzhou.
