Taoyuanjian is most famous for its ten thousand mu of azaleas. It is located on the top of Taoyuanjian Mountain in Chashuping Village, Gaoping Township, in the north of Suichang County (the highest point is 1438 meters). The azaleas naturally grow on high mountains of 1200-1400 meters and stretch for more than 30 miles. Rhododendrons are in full bloom around the beginning of the month. There is a sea of flowers in a radius of ten miles. They are known as 10,000 mu of azaleas, but the flowering period is only about two weeks. Other trees naturally grow on the mountain, which affects the growth and viewing of azaleas.
Chashuping Village is about 60 kilometers away from the county seat. Take the shuttle bus from the county seat to Gaoping (1 hour, 1 hour, 40 minutes, 17 yuan), get off at Chashuping Village, then walk or take a taxi to Taoyuan Village (3.5 kilometers, 10 yuan/person, over 5 There are farmhouses in Chashuping Village or Taoyuan Village. There are no tickets to Gaoping's 10,000-mu Rhododendron Scenic Area, but there is a charge for self-driving parking. Taoyuan Village is about 1,100 meters above sea level. From here as the starting point, there is a drop of more than 300 meters from the top of Taoyuanjian Mountain. A single trek takes more than 1 hour and a round trip is about 9,000 steps.
Every year in May, many people come here to see the azaleas, most of them are self-driving, traveling friends and photography enthusiasts. In summer, many people come here to escape the heat from the farmhouse.
The flower status in 2018 is obviously not as good as in previous years. Due to the azalea seedlings that were damaged by the cold stream during the Qingming Festival, I hope that the prosperity will resume in the coming year.
Well, just in time for the Azalea, which is the season when the azaleas bloom, I found a route that is said to be the least possible to see the azaleas. As a result, I climbed a Jinmao building back and forth. I really admire those hiking lovers. I can climb the mountain for 8 hours, but I finally saw the azalea and I was very pleased. By the way, a sister who lives in the middle of the mountain said that she would not go climbing, because where she lives, you can see Azalea in the distance, but this year's drive is not as vigorous as in previous years. In previous years, the ridges were like rainbows. All beautiful
Taoyuanjian azaleas are beautiful when they are in bloom. During the May 1st holiday, I went to the green lake in Quzhou to enjoy the flowers. It was a pity that I could not walk from the lake to the tip of Taoyuan.
The azaleas were damaged by the cold weather last winter. The flowers are less than half of previous years.
Going up from Chashuping, I feel good. Mountain climbing...Three hours round trip.
The road up the mountain is not very smooth. I did not expect that there will be so many people. There are people and cars everywhere, which is unexpected. Maybe it was climbing at noon and crowded people. After only half an hour of climbing, it was obviously uncomfortable. The thought of giving up flashed through my mind from time to time. I just walked and stopped. It took 1 and a half hours to finally climb the Taoyuan Peak. . Taoyuanjian is 1,438 meters above sea level, with a magnificent azalea forest of 10,000 mu. The eyes lit up, and all the exhaustion was quickly dispersed by the azaleas all over the mountains and plains, and I had never seen such a magnificent sea of flowers. Finally saw the ten miles of flowers, fortunately I did not give up!
