If the "The mountains cover an area of 60 km²" how come that "The world heritage site has an area of 999.75 square kilometres within an additional buffer zone of 278.88 km²"? I admit that those numbers were taken from UNESCO site, but this does make sense, especially after reading in the only reference in the article (Britannica Educational Publishing (2010). The Geography of China: Sacred and Historic Places) the following sentence: "A protected area of about 38 square miles (100 square km) was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999." Could it be that all the UNESCO site numbers should be divided be 10? Avihu (talk) 18:38, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
The UNESCO numbers, i.e., around 1,000 km² appear to match the extent of the area on the map better than the unsourced 60 km², so I suggest using the UNESCO numbers rm (talk) 13:49, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
