Bama, therefore has often been reputably referred to as the “Village of Longevity, Sanctuary of China.”

Bama terrain is mostly rocky and mountainous; farmland is very sacred and precious to the locals. The highest peak of Bama extends as far as 1,216 meters off of sea level, while the lowest point is 221 meters above. About the height of 600 to 800 meters, Bama is severed by the BanYang River, known to locals as the River of Life, running from north to south.

Bama is located in a tropical area, with an annual temperature of 20.4 C. and weather relatively mild and gentle throughout the year. Proven by studies, the air of Bama is especially natural and refreshing.

With 2,500 in every cubic centimeter, and thirty plus thousand in the upper atmospheres of the Banyang River and the villages, it is 100 to 750 times the amount of Beijing City.

Bama is also home to great historic events. During the 20's and 30's, it was headquarters for many of the most renowned revolutionary leaders, like Deng XiaoPing, Zhang YungMing, and Dian PuoQuen.

Due to Bama's mountainous terrains, living conditions are very poor. However, in the village of BaTun, a population of 515, is now home to amazingly 7 hundred year old seniors, exceeding the United Nation's longevity mark by 200 times. (UN requires an longevity village to have 7 hundred year old seniors out of a population of 20,000) Due to the lack of educational funding and facilities, children in Bama start school at a late age of 10. Only when they reach the stage of high school, would they be expose to T.V., radios, or other mediums of communication. But statistics show a level of educational success that is unmatchable by many metropolitans; there is practically a teacher in every household, two kids accepted into the world renowned Qinghua University, four others are currently studying abroad, etc.
