Discover the Real Cangyuan With a Local Expert

Standing on the bottom of the pit, looking up at the sky, the rock mass at the mouth of the pit is like a natural frame, which transforms the beautiful world outside and transforms it into the most fascinating work. Looking up at the bottom of the pit towards the sky, although there are fewer floating clouds and white clouds companionship, the waterfall that falls from the air, like a pillar of the sky, is magnificently down. Dive, add a dynamic to the original quiet picture. Into the depths of the bottom of the pit, I thought it would be a deadly thing that is hard to live with, but I never thought that if I really entered, I saw a booming life. All kinds of green plants embellish the entire tiankeng with a garden-like greenery.

When I was traveling in Wuyuan, I watched a unique performance of the Dai Shigangli style performance. The visual shock from beginning to end was full of wildness and enjoyment. The origin of the Yi people, the myths and legends of "Sigori" are widely circulated. According to the interpretation of the Yiyuan Yi people, Siegang is Hulu and Li is Out, meaning the person who comes out of the Hulu; according to the interpretation of the Ximeng Yi people, Sigang is Shidong. "Li" is "out", meaning "people come out of the cave." Although the Yi people in different places have different interpretations of "Shi Gangli", they all regard the Mount Ayi as the birthplace of human beings. In the central area of Mount Ayi, although the private ownership of production materials has been established, it still retains the remains of the original rural communes. Each village has a certain geographical scope, including one to several natural villages. The arable land of each village is generally 10% to 20% publicly owned by the village. Most of the cultivated land and production tools, houses, livestock, weapons, and daily necessities are owned by individual families and individuals. The most worshipped by the Yi people is the "Mu Yi Ji" god, which is regarded as the highest god "ghost" who dominates everything and creates everything on earth. The larger religious activities carried out by the Yi people, such as the Lamu drum, the chopping of the tail of the cow and the head of the hunter, were held to sacrifice it. Near each Yi village, there is a dense forest with towering trees. The Yi people call it "Long Meiji", which is "Ghost Woodland". TIPS: 1, there is already an airport direct flight in Wuyuan County, and there is no need to fly to Linyi. 2, the show only has one game per week and starts at 7pm. In the case of major festivals, it may be added.
In Wuyuan County, Linyi City, Yunnan Province, there is a small village called Manghe, hidden in the mountains. Wuyuan County is bordered by Myanmar. It is a concentrated area of the Yi people. 85% of the county is a Yi people. The Yi people in this county account for 40% of the national Yi population. To experience the true national customs, you must work hard and go to the countryside. This is not a tourist attraction in the traditional sense. There is no tourist at all. The nearest scenic spot to this village is the Nangunhe Nature Reserve if it can be called a scenic spot. Beasts in the reserve are infested, tourists must be very cautious when they want to get off the bus, and the mountain roads are not easy to walk. Very few people will find it here. The road in the village is very narrow, the car can't enter, the road is about 500 meters away from the entrance to the village. The open space on the roadside is the parking lot, and you must walk into the village. The villagers are good at using local resources. The mountain spring water is led down by bamboo, and it becomes a natural tap water with clear water quality. There is a temple in the village. Most of the monks are small children and young adults. This is very common in temples in Yunnan. Temples are not only a place to practice, but also a school. The branches of the village are leafy, even in the cold winter, it will not be cold here. It is green and oily all the year round, and the village is natural and simple. The mountains are neat terraces. Yunnan's mountainous area, Wuyuan County is even more so, there is not much arable land, local people are experts who are good at using the mountains.
Weng Ding Village, Wuyuan County, Yunnan Province, is known as the last primitive tribe in China. Wuyuan County and Myanmar's Shan State border, Weng Ding is about 33 kilometers away from Wuyuan County. This is a village that has entered the modern society directly from the primitive society. There are more than 100 households with a history of more than 400 years. The sky of Yunnan, the purity of blue. The Yi people live here. This ethnic group has a small population. A "Auntie singing new songs" let us know that such a minority is living in the Ayi Mountain. When entering the village, there are local people at the gate of the stockade, ringing the wooden drum, pointing a little black paint on your eyebrows, and singing and welcoming. The wooden drum has a special status in the Yi village. The Yi people's Lamu drum was a major ritual in the past and has gradually become a performance project. The village wall in the center of the village is a symbol of this village. The house is the most traditional bamboo and wood structure, the roof is covered with thatch, the building is made from local materials, and there is a large bamboo forest next to the village. The house is usually a two-story structure with people living on the upper floor. is the largest house in the village. Into the king's palace, the fire in the fire pond is burning. The locals treat guests with a large leafy tea that tastes bitter, and of course drops a few drops on the ground before drinking. The fire in the fire pond is endless all year round. The locals believe that the extinction of the fire pit symbolizes unlucky. On the side of the village, there is a row of heads.
In Wuyuan County, Yunnan Province, China, there is a Yonghe Port, which used to be the Shan State of Myanmar. There are not many people who cross the border from this port, and to some extent become a tourist attraction. Get out of the port on the Chinese side, and there is still a long way to go to the port of entry for Myanmar. Visitors can take a look at this section. The original blue sky and white clouds, the rolling green hills, the environment here is enviable. Due to the altitude, this place in Wuyuan is covered in a white mist every morning. After the afternoon, the clouds begin to disperse. The buildings at the port have an obvious Southeast Asian style. China and Myanmar are separated by a valley. This is the boundary pillar of the port, and it is also a place where tourists compete for a group photo. I saw the floating five-star red flag, very kind. The sea of clouds in the mountains appears almost every day, this is a beautiful place.
Wuyuan Wending, a Yi women sitting in their own courtyard brocade, Jin is the legend of the beautiful and beautiful of the Ayi Mountain. According to legend, the "King" of the brocade is borrowed from the "Jin" of the beautiful scenery, which means to use the natural scenery. Rich and varied beauty to describe the colorful beauty of the brocade. People who have seen the Yi brocade in the Ayi Mountain almost have a feeling that the brocade is like a rainbow, beautiful and natural. Each pattern is like a picture of the environment and life of the Yi people. Never forget. The Yu people in the old saying mean "people living in the mountains." Because the Yi people are located in remote areas of China, they have been in the slash-and-burn stage of primitive society before liberation. After liberation, they have transitioned to modern society, leaving many imprints of primitive society. It is not difficult to see that Weng Dingzhai retains the original Yi folk house architecture style and the original Dai ethnic customs. It is the best preserved original group village so far, and it has been praised as the last primitive tribe in China by National Geographic magazine.
