9. Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art Cultural Landscape
Located on the steep cliffs in the border regions of southwest China, these 38 sites of rock art illustrate the life and rituals of the Luoyue people.
In a surrounding landscape of karst, rivers and plateaux, they depict ceremonies which have been interpreted as portraying the bronze drum culture once prevalent across southern China.
This cultural landscape is the only trace left of this culture today.
It was added into the list on July 15, 2016.
