Tachuan is a small Hui village built on the mountain in Yixian County, Anhui Province. It is a charming mountain village among many natural villages in southern Anhui. It is best known for its autumn scenery, and is as famous as Xiangshan in Beijing and Jiuzhaigou in Sichuan. It is "one of the three major autumn colors in China" and is a place where photographers and painters alike. The small mountain village was originally quiet and beautiful. With the increasing number of tourists coming, it has become a hot spot for the Internet to appreciate autumn.
The bumps along the way reached Gulingtou Farmhouse on the side slope of Tachuan Road, which was almost nine o'clock in the evening. The misty night was full of stars and moons, and you could see Hongcun with flashing lights not far away. The accommodation room was settled, and the farm owner prepared dinner for us. As a result of hunger, hot steaming fresh dishes came to the table, and soon they were swept away. The farmer's brewed pharmaceutical wine stretched mellowly, pushing the cup to change the room, and he felt a little embarrassed.
The dwellings of Tachuan are built on the mountain. The pink-walled Dewama head wall and eaves are angled and distributed on uneven hillsides. They are layered and scattered. As far as I can see, the layers of forests are soaked and colorful, and the quaint and elegant villages, rolling hills, and colorful woods form a bright and moving picture.
It has been cascaded down from the camphor tree at the entrance of Tachuan Village for more than 300 years. The trees are densely shaded and colorful, and the roadside is dotted with ancient trees such as maple, lime tree, and maple scent. Green, yellow, and red leaves are intertwined. The black cypress tree is a major feature of the village. The leaves of the same tree will show different colors from yellow, light red to fiery red. Different leaves are like lovers, interdependent and inseparable, and they are very layered.
The vendors in Tachuan are nearby villagers. They sell small red persimmons, mountain grapes, green tofu, pancakes and other specialty products. The taste is sour and sweet, the fragrance is crunchy, and there is an aftertaste after taste. Waterwheels, bamboo baskets, haystacks, corn skewers, etc. are also distributed along the roadsides in the village, making people born in the countryside inadvertently recall the good times of childhood.
Yiyi reluctantly bid farewell to Tachuan and drove to Qiyun Mountain, the second stop of Taoist shrine. As soon as I entered the scenic area, I saw the gilded word "dao" on the stone monument below the roadside tower. It is said that the Taoist history of Qiyun Mountain belongs to the Quanzhen School. Before the Jin Dynasty, there were no people. Before the Tang Dynasty, there were Taoist activities. There is a four-month Chaoshan incense society every year. There is also a Guanyin meeting. On the fifteenth of the first month of each year, the Yanlong Lantern Festival will be held in Yanqian Town under the mountain. Villagers carry the fragrant pavilion, dance the dragon lanterns, ascend the Qiyun Mountain, and dance in front of Taisu Palace.
Starting from the visitor center, shortly after walking, I arrived at the Dengfeng Bridge, which rested on the Hengjiang River. The river under the bridge was clear and the flocks of ducks were swimming freely on the water. This is also the starting point of the ancient mountain trail in Qiyun Mountain. It is said that the bridge was built by the ancient Zhixian of Huizhou prefecture in the 15th year of Wanli in the Ming Dynasty. It is a stone arch bridge with nine holes and ten piers. When the stone bridge was completed, it was suitable for the promotion of the Guangdong Provincial Government. "Dengfeng Bridge" means "pingbuqingyun, ascending step by step".
Crossing the Dengfeng Bridge, passing through Yanjiao Village, and stepping into the Xia Ke ancient trail of Jiuli 13 Pavilions, "Nine" and "Thirteen" imply the meaning of Yin Yang, Yang Shun and healthy longevity. I went up the stairs and went all the way up. When I was tired, I rested in the pavilion. The 13 pavilions had different shapes and different names. Look at them carefully, try to figure out carefully, and read carefully the allusions and legends of each pavilion.
After walking around for a while, I didn't feel that I had come to the "Shandian Miaoguo" stone carving, climbed the last steepest step, and finally saw the "Wangxian Tower" at the entrance of Qiyun Mountain Scenic Area, with Qianlong Yuci hanging high on both sides of the gate The title "The First Mountain in the South of the Yangtze River, the World's Unparalleled Victory", the gold plaque on the black background is sacred and solemn under the sun. When you entered the gate, you officially entered the Qiyun Mountain Scenic Area. You walked hurriedly, passing Mengzhen Bridge, Shouzi Rock, and passing through the one-day gate naturally formed by the Danxia rock mass. Tianmen, towering ancient trees along the way, caves lined with cliffs and stone carvings are breathtaking. Feeling all the way, taking pictures all the way, when there are more market shops and inn restaurants nearby, it has reached Yuehua Street. Because it is located on the top of the mountain, it is also called Yunshangtian Street. It is also a Huipai building with white walls and black tiles. There are both tourists and pilgrims.
In the teahouse on the roadside, I also saw an elder with a good eyebrow. In the cigarette, I saw that he was ruddy and spirited. He drank tea and talked about life. Throughout the past and the present, he was quite immortal. bone. According to the Taoist Chief, he has a fragile life and a lot of fate, because after going through the vicissitudes of life, he has been living and living in Qiyun Mountain alone for 13 years. With a few words, the Tao is full of life. Perhaps meeting the Taoist leader is also a meditation arrangement, admonishing us that life is impermanent and cherish the present.
