42-meter-high crosswalk with a glass floor, and grass sliding facility have been built over a tea plantation on Sujia Mountain. 

Su Wenda who runs the tea plantation has told CRI reporters that a bungee jump is going to be established on the site in the near future.  "We hope to attract more young people by combining the beauty of nature with the excitement," said Su.

Ecotourism is being touted in Zhouning as a green and sustainable way for economic development. It's become a buzzword in the wake of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC, has promised to promote green development and intensify the protection of ecosystems as part of his report at the 19th CPC National Congress.
