Fu kou waterfall, also have been known as biggest yellow waterfall in the world and according its height and occupied area as second big waterfall in China. The raging Huanghe! This place really deserves its reputation. The scenic area is decided our several parts. Untamed water is grabbing attention by magnifying power. It leads to wish to stand and meditate watching this spectacular landscape. We came there in mid of June during the rain season. The waterfall was in full power. If you want to see it in real power, come in Summer time, but, please, take a note. During rain the spot could be flooded and as a result some parts will be not available for visiting. For instance, the cave was closed for visitors during our travelling. So, everyone should make decision when to come. #tripaway#triplocal

Ding Village Folk Culture Museum is located 5 kilometers south of Jixian County, west of the river, east of Dongshan Mountain. The residential buildings here are buildings of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. They have a history of more than 400 years. From the name of Ding Village, it is not difficult to see that the people living here are basically Ding family. Into the Ding Village Folk Museum, there are dozens of ancient buildings in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The earliest is the Ming Wanli twenty-one to forty years, and the later is the Qing Emperor Kangxi Xianfeng years. This is also the first museum in China that reflects the folk customs of the Han nationality. The courtyard of the Ding Village Folk Museum was originally a private residence, a courtyard where the brothers of the Ding family live together. According to the records of "Ding's Genealogy", at the end of the Yuan Dynasty and the beginning of Ming Dynasty, the ancestor Ding Fu led the tribes from Yucheng County, Henan Province, and turned to the village for generations. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the Ding Clan relied on trafficking in medicinal materials, and their business spread throughout Henan, Shandong, and Shaanxi provinces. As the business is booming, it has strong financial resources. The beautiful wood carvings such as the stencils in the houses, the birds and the arches, the stone carvings such as the pillars, the pierstones and the stepping stones all show the artistic beauty of that era. Such as Xilu Feng Hou, even the three yuan, Sanyang Kaitai, , Wufu holding life, from different angles to show Ding Village people's yearning for art and good life.

If you encounter such a place in the village, the ancient village, the wild chrysanthemums in front of the cave, the persimmon trees with golden persimmons, sitting under the tree and eating a very reasonable Jiugongge nutritious breakfast, will you feel this fall? Very beautiful. The cave dwelling in Yunqiu Mountain in Shanxi Province is warm in winter and cool in summer. Because the air in the mountains is moist and fresh, return to nature to find a quiet, let the tired heart rest here for a few days. The old and ridiculous village has now become a beautiful little village. The ancient memories are still there, just a few more beautiful.

Exploring the millions of years of natural ice caves, the world's rare ah Shanxi Yunqiushan ice cave, with the shock that can be felt in it. In addition to the visual, the physical stimulation brought by the hot springs all year round is also amazing. The frozen group is 3 million years old and is naturally formed and naturally gifted. The locals said that the ice cave is also a scene in the summer, and there are two days in and outside the ice cave. It is no exaggeration. The day we went to the ice cave, the outdoor is the early autumn warm sun, and the cotton clothes before entering the ice cave were smashed by me. Walking through the promenade and entering an ice cave for sightseeing, it was instantly shocked by the sights in front of you. The largest ice cave is more than ten meters high, and the surrounding icicles are thick and white. The scene in the fantasy novel is exactly the same. Follow the trail forward, explore the ice cave, explore the mysterious world, the mystery of the white world. Feeling the language is slightly pale in front of these landscapes. 1. Tickets: 80 yuan / person 2. Nearby attractions: Shen Xian, Talpo Ancient Village 3. Accommodation: overnight Picking Kangjiaping Ancient Village B&B 4.

The Yunqiu Mountain Ice Cave Group is like a crystal palace deep in the depths of Yunqiu Mountain. It was discovered by local farmers and gradually developed. Now we only see one of the first holes open to the outside world, icicles, ice, crystal clear, beautiful appearance, the cave is very shocking, it is worth a look. Yunqiushan Ice Cave Group is one of the world's three largest ice cave spectacles, and it is also the largest natural ice cave group found in China. You must wear a cotton coat before entering the ice hole. The inside of the hole is minus 5 degrees, which is really cold. Taking photos in the ice cave is very beautiful. Going deeper, there is a big ice cave hall. It is very beautiful to sit on the steps and you can take a spectacular view of the ice cave.

Shanxi has such a good ancient village B&B, it is really amazing! A few days ago, I went home to see the ice cave in Yunqiu Mountain, Linyi, and visited the ancient village. Living in Kangjiaping Ancient Village B&B, I experienced the morning, evening and night of this century-old village. When leaving the store, the housekeeper Xia Chen was waving in the car. She said that she had time to come back. The tone was moving. Service: It is very gratifying to see that in the 100-year-old village B&B in Ning County, Linyi Township, Shanxi Province, the housekeepers sister was not only the housewife in the village, but now they are generous. Courteous, warm and welcoming. Different from the sense of service in the South, the enthusiasm of the housekeepers reveals the warmth and sincerity of the northerners. I have walked through many places, and this is a rare and memorable experience. I don't know if it is related to the identity of my hometown. Design: I was fortunate enough to meet the owner of the hotel, Mr. Chen Yongwei, a designer from Taiwan. In order to avoid being overly disturbed by the outside world, people who still use non-smart phones, adhering to the cherished love of ancient villages, have carefully designed and transformed them here. At the same time, he also arranged the garden landscaping part of the hotel, and part of his service concept naturally penetrated into the daily life of the hotel. There is a new part, and the old part of the village is preserved. The old and new harmony is very attractive. We have walked several times a day along the village road, there are small stage, stove, and a small temple still with incense, these hundreds of years of architecture have been preserved. There are also people, those who are passionate like old friends, make the difference here. Gourmet: Unforgettable B&B Shanzhen Restaurant specializes in nourishing hot pot at night. In the autumn and winter, the mountain is cold and the little partner is eating a hot health pot. It is warm and warm all the time. While eating hot pot, you can talk freely. After the hot pot, there are corn thick paste, tea, small desserts, fruits... The life of the mountain house is embarrassing. and I love the evening here, standing in the heights of the scattered villages, watching the lights of the paths and houses light up until the night falls, and everything is silent. I think it should be like this for thousands of years. Some writers wrote: "The place I lived in was my hometown. I met in the evening and met each other. Just like my neighbor in the country, although I am not a relative, I sometimes miss him later." I will not think of wearing a blue calico dress at some time in the future, Xia Chen, who is always laughing, and her good kitchen with a wonderful pen. Address: Shanxi, Linyi, Yunqiupeng Ancient Village, Yunqiu Mountain, recommended to travel by car. Nearby attractions: Yunqiu Mountain Ice Cave, Talgu Folk Village, Shenxian Temple, it is recommended to stay for two nights.

What happens when you meet a favorite hotel on the road? When I came to Yunqiushan, I was so impressed by the Kangjiaping B&B here. I really liked the hotel with such charm and temperament in such a place like Shanxi. I really like it. B&B is a remodeled ancient village in Yunqiu Mountain. The stone room is designed with a full texture. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is a paradise. No matter where you stand, you can find it is not the same beauty. If you come, you don't want to leave, you will miss if you leave.
