Genheyuan National Wetland Park is located on the northern slopes of the Greater Hinggan Mountains in the county-level city of Genhe, Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia autonomous region. Integrating sightseeing, catering, business receptions and scientific adventures, it's an ideal place to get in touch with nature.

The park is 5 kilometers east of downtown Genhe and covers 59,060 hectares with a wetland coverage ratio of 34.36%. Boasting multiple ecological systems, including forest, wetland and lake, the park is well protected and home to numerous waterfowl, as well as primitive vegetation such as larix gmelinii and betula platyphylla .
