Liujiang Ancient Town
LIUJIANG Town is located in Hongya County of Southwest China's Sichuan Province. Before the country's liberation in 1949, the town was dominated by a few rich families. Their big houses perfectly match the beautiful mountains in the distance, giving the impression of a traditional Chinese painting.
Zengjia Dayuan (Zeng's Garden) is located in the north of the ancient town. It was first built during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), with an exquisite design. A bird's-eye view over the whole garden would show that it looks like the Chinese character "Shou" (long life).
To build the "shou" house, lots of zig-zag lanes and eaves were designed to make the house look quite mysterious.
|No one lives in the house anymore, except for a few hens wandering around searching for pests to eat. Old walls stand quietly in the wind. The house is very quiet.
The old street is not far from Zeng's Garden. A narrow lane opens out into a tidy and pretty town. Wooden doors and windows, black tiles and lichen on the walls makes the small town look like an ancient poem.
|Sometimes, warmhearted old people will invite visitors into their homes to look around.
Walking eastwards through the town reveals a large banyan tree alongside the Huaxi River. People have used paving stones to build a crossing over the river, which is used by local women as a place to wash clothes, as well as providing a beautiful picture for us.
|Ever fewer people live in the town these days, and those who do are often away working. Women sit in the doorways making shoes, while men play cards and children complete their homework with dog sleeping beside them. Everyone seems happy and calm, with the only noise coming from the admiring tourists.
|Because every year, thousands of tourists come to visit the town, local people are used to receiving throngs of guests and make cautious inquiries about them, asking whether they are looking for guides.
|An old man sat fishing intently in the middle of the river, although actually there are few fish in the river during the winter. But the old man didn't care, still working hard in the cold water. A white aigrette flew over him soundlessly, as if it couldn't endure waiting ay longer.
Wild fish are a local delicacy in Liujiang and taste wonderful. Don't miss it.
|Wawu Hill because of its special geographical location, air humidity, wind direction and other conditions, appear vulnerable to the sea of clouds, sunrise, Buddha, and other magical shengdeng Sky landscape, the landscape appears probability be even more significant than the Emeishan Jinding, the Peak as Seoul Rock is the best viewing position.
|Hill Wawu dense vegetation diversity. The mountains, many animals in the fall and winter seasons in the "Maverick Street" Watch sumatraensis cattle spectacular scenes activities.

Wawu mountains are the birthplace of Chinese Taoism. Taishang Senior legend was riding Tinospora exit "Qingyang find in the market", from the old course of the Sichuan grasslands along the Qingyi River Hill came Wawu missionary sermons, and finally ascended to heaven in Wawu Hill, Yuanyang pool now too old Eagle wood carving statues, although exposed to the elements after the millennium, are still vivid.
