The Main Soils in Huguangyan scenic area are weathered residual laterite of volcanic platform and brown-red, brown-yellow sub-sandy soil and sub-clay of eroded platform, as well as grey-black muddy clay, sub-sandy soil and silty fine sand of coastal zone. The lithology of laterite distributed on volcanic platform is brown red-brick red clay and sub-clay. Under the condition of vegetation of tropical rain forest or monsoon rain forest, latosol is formed by high temperature and rainy leaching and serialization of organic matter.

Huguangyan Scenic Area is located in the northern margin of the tropics. Its vegetation type has the transitional nature from the south subtropics to the North tropics. It not only preserves some floristic characteristics of the South subtropics, but also has the species composition of the North tropics. Due to the influence of natural environment and human factors such as topography and climate, the plant growth is quite flourishing and the plant resources are very rich.

The main vegetation in the scenic spot can be divided into eight types: tropical rain forest, tropical monsoon rain forest and subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forest, including monsoon evergreen broad-leaved forest, moss evergreen broad-leaved forest, deciduous broad-leaved forest, mangrove, bamboo forest, shrub and grassland.

The tropical seasonal rain forest and mangrove forest are the main protected objects in the region. There are many kinds of forest plants, with remarkable development of plate roots, abundant woody vines, widespread strangulation of plants, and the phenomenon of old stem flowering is more prominent.

Wildlife resources

The fauna of Huguangyan Scenic Area belongs to Leiqiong area in geographical division, and has typical tropical and subtropical characteristics. Complex and diverse natural conditions, abundant plant species, complete forest ecosystem and superior ecological environment provide rich food and ideal habitat for all kinds of cave-dwelling, arboreal and terrestrial wildlife, with abundant animal species. There are more than 100 species of vertebrate wildlife in the park. Among them, reptiles such as turtles, turtles, clams, horsehair snakes, golden ring snakes, southern snakes, silver ring snakes, cobras, pythons and other 7 families and 9 species; animal birds such as grass sparrows, hawks, turtledoves, sparrows, pheasants, partridges, owls, kingfishes and other 6 families and 7 species.

Layout of scenic spots

Maar Lake is the core scenic spot of Huguangyan Scenic Area, with a core area of 13.6 square kilometers and a lake area of 2.3 square kilometers. It is a Maar-type volcanic lake formed by cooling and sinking after the explosion of flat volcano 140,000 to 160,000 years ago. The lake is more than 400 meters deep. Under the protection of the surrounding volcanic heaps, the lake water is not disturbed by the external water system. The lake bottom sediment layer formed by long-term natural deposition is a "natural yearbook" and "natural museum" left over from the evolution of the earth for more than 100,000 years. The road around the lake is paved with bluestone slabs, which realizes the diversion of people and vehicles, and makes the design and layout of the whole scenic area more humanized.

Huguangyan Scenic Spot is surrounded by volcanic plains. Cliffs and steep walls around the lake are clear in stratigraphy and rhythm of volcanic rocks. The water of the lake is as clear as a mirror, and its roots are grabbing stones to make a scene. There are abundant tourist resources in the scenic area, such as Lion Ridge, natural volcanic sites, cliff stone carving "Huguangyan" inscribed by Li Gang, Prime Minister of the Song Dynasty, and Leiqiong World Geopark Museum, Seismology Hall, Wanghai Tower, Leizhou Ancient Courtyard, Folk Customs Park, Bainiu Fairy Statue, Dongmen Ecological Square, Chazhuang, etc.

On the west side of Mar Lake, Baiyi'an is built on the hill and across the lake from the thousand-year-old Lingyan Temple. It is an excellent viewing point and oxygen-absorbing point to appreciate the lake scenery. There are many ancient trees, vines and lush vegetation in the scenic area. There is a high-density negative air ion area along the lakeside with a negative ion content of 105688/cubic centimeter, which can be called "Natural Oxygen Bar". On the Hunan side, there is a Poetry Gallery in the Cultural and Art Gallery. Its clear water flows downstream along the mountainside, winding and winding, forming the origin of winding water.

After the founding of the People's Republic of China, Deng Xiaoping, Dong Biwu, Guo Moruo and Chen Yi, the leaders of the Party and the state, also visited Huguangyan, leaving many precious poems and ink treasures all over the scenic spots.
