[Objective] The purpose of the study was to explore the impacts of the tourism on nature reserves by exterminating the soil physical and chemical properties,fertility indicators and analyzing those characteristics.[Method] The belt transects method was adopted.[Result] The amount of surface litter was reduced 1/2,organic matter content was reduced 7%,the soil total nitrogen content was reduced 0.04 g/kg,and the contents of the other matters such as soil total phosphorus content were all reduced in various degree by human trampling and tourism disturbance.[Conclusion] The soil fertility showed a decrease trend with the increasing intensity of human disturbance,obviously in 0-20 cm soil layer.
