The simple and charming style of Langde Shangzhai
came to Langde Shangzhai, which is more primitive and more quaint. It followed the villagers on the wind and rain bridge, and cocked in the field. I caught the fish in the rice fields... I was so happy, I didnt expect to catch a few. Entering the village to drink 12 channels of wine, all the way along the stone road to the reed field in the center of the stockade, to appreciate the traditional performance brought by the enthusiastic villagers.
Langde Shangzhai, there is a very original shock!
Compared with Xijiang Miao Village, there is a very original shock. This is a Miao village with only a hundred families. The Langde Shangzhai is a free translation of the Miao language. With the guests visiting, the whole village, men, women and children will be grandly hosted, and will present you with authentic 12-door wine. The village is not very big, you can slowly go shopping and buy some pure handicrafts of Miaojia Amei. In the afternoon, the sun is hot and hot, eating watermelon and immersing your feet in the cold stream to hydrolyze the heat, and then seeing friends catching fish in the rice fields, playing all kinds of fun! Isn't this the yearning pastoral life? After the rain, Langde Miao Village, the mountains are covered with a layer of foggy yarn, adding a mystery ~ more unexpected, waiting for you to discover!

The Langde Shangzhai is a free translation of the Miao language "can fight against the entanglement", "can be exchanged" means the meaning of the lower reaches of the river, the village name, " Angqian" is Shangzhai, Langde Shangzhai is named above the Langde plot. Since ancient times, the Miao nationality has been a nation that can sing and dance. Everyone will sing and everyone will dance. With the history and thousands of years of inheritance, the song and dance vividly played the living conditions of the Miao people. I am used to the modern dance of the songs, not to enter Langde Shangzhai, to listen to the most rich and wild, wild and rough Miao songs and dances. From their sincere and simple eyes, they can feel the true, kind and beautiful of the local residents.
This Miao Village has a unique "12-way block wine", this Miao Village is the lower village of Langde Miao Village. When entering this ancient Langde Xiazhai, the rustic village appeared in front of you. The house inside the stockade is a typical slinged ancient building. It is tall and tall. It is built according to the mountain trend. It is a little more unique.
Most of the hanging-legged buildings are half-covered by the lush trees in the mountains. There is a feeling of still holding a half-faced face, giving a faint mystery and walking into the stockade along the path of the stockade. All around are covered with rice, which has already been autumn, and there is a hint of grassy fragrance. From time to time, I can see the old uncle bending over the field and working hard. It is really too grounded.
First enter the village, must pass the test of Langde Xiazhai "Twelve Road Bars", this is a kind of toasting way that people can not refuse, almost all the tourists who come here I want to drink. However, everyone should not think that this is deliberately embarrassing to you. In fact, this is a way of expressing a warm welcome to the Zhaizhai people.
Here is the "Twelve Roads", which has been deeply rooted in the Miaozhai people as a wine culture. In the 12 wines, the road is full of blessings, a congratulation, Two roads are prosperous, three are hardworking, four are kind, five are liberal, six are rich, seven bright, eight beautiful, nine longevity, ten heroes, eleven wisdom, and twelve noble. You can get all the blessings only if you drink these twelve.
