芳草碧连天sjxWe went to the Longji terraces by car on October 5, 2021. I saw everyone's recommendation and went directly to the Jinkeng Red Jujube terraces. There are many tourists on the National Day holiday. The road is rugged and serious congestion. It is about an hour to walk 3 kilometers from the scenic spot. The parking space is not easy to find, but the scenery is very good. Going in early October is the best. The rice is confiscated, the golden rice spike 🌾 and the green rice leaves are very photogenic. However, the environment of the homestay is good, the sound insulation of the room is not good, affecting the rest. I got up at 5 o'clock in the morning on the 6th, and went down at 6 o'clock. I was going to get up early to see the sunrise, afraid of the traffic jam, and we can't see more beautiful scenery. It's a little regret. All the photos have not been processed.

Ancient Villages
139***13Huangluo Yaozhai Pass Huangluo Yaozhai on the way back to the gate of the scenic spot from the thousand-story ladder view point. The owner of the inn said that this is a traditional village of the Yao people. It is worth seeing the traditional performances of the Yao people every day. Huangluo Yaozhai is the only Yao village among the 13 Longji villages, and it is inhabited by the Hong Yao nationality. Since ancient times, Hongyao women have the traditional habit of storing long hair. Among the 60 households in the village, 60 have hair longer than one meter, and the longest one is 1.7 meters. It is known as the world's number one Changfa Village. The unmarried woman’s hair is wrapped around her head and wrapped in black cloth. Only her family can see her long hair. If outsiders want to see their hair, they must marry her home. Every villager here can sing, dance, and be hospitable. It is said that when tourists came to Huangluo Yao Village, Yao girls dressed in strong national costumes sang sweet folk songs to welcome them and presented their unique dances and traditional sports competitions. There are also the fragrant scented tea oil and the long black hair of Yao women, which amazes tourists even more. Due to the epidemic, when we came to Huangluo Yaozhai, we were deserted and there were few visitors. The performance hall was empty, but this allowed us to better appreciate the original Yaozhai. Huangluo Hongyao Village is backed by Longji Mountain and faces Jinjiang River. It is at the place where the Longji terraces begin to spiral upward. Hongyao women’s costumes are beautiful and exquisite. It takes three years for a set of clothes to be embroidered by hand. The clothes are embroidered with various patterns and patterns, colorful flowers and trees, and lifelike birds and animals. The most special There is a pair of bright red tiger paw prints on the waist. Speaking of this tiger paw print, there is an unusual story. Legend has it that one day the emperor went up the mountain to hunt and was in danger, and was almost eaten by a tiger. It was a Hongyao girl who saved him. To thank her for saving his life, the emperor cut off the tiger's claws and dipped the tiger blood on the back of the Yao girl's clothes like a seal. , Chuanzhi said that you don’t need to kneel down. When officials at all levels meet her, those who sit on the sedan chair will get off the sedan chair, and those who ride a horse will get off the horse. After returning home, this Yao girl embroidered tiger paw prints on all her clothes with silk thread. It was passed down from generation to generation, and you can still see the tiger paw prints. You only need to observe carefully that the Yao women wear silver jewelry on their ears and hands. The most conspicuous ones are the two- or three-fold earrings, and the bracelets on the hands are all folk silversmiths. Finely carved. In an open house on the side of the road, there are several old mothers embroidering. Their dresses are very ethnic, as if they were a harmonious and beautiful picture. On the road in the stockade, an old hen was playing with her children, looking so warm and peaceful. Huangluo Yaozhai is worth stopping to watch her traditions and appreciate her natural beauty.
