Description   EN   


The Great Smoky Mountains National Park straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains here on the Tennessee and North Carolina State line. It also covers parts of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a large part of the Appalachian Mountain. The park was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1934 and dedicated by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940.

Within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are sixteen peaks over 6,000 feet, of which the tallest is Clingmans Dome, at 6,643 ft. It is home to 200 species of birds, 66 species of mammals, 50 species of fish, 39 species of reptiles and 43 species of amphibians. There are also almost as many species of trees in the national park as in the whole of Europe.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 7th session of the World Heritage Committee held in Florence, Italy, on 5 - 9 December, 1983.

The coordinates are to a memorial plaque, to log this listing as a find, enter as the code phrase the seventh word on top of the plaque.
