About Shennongjia

Shennongjia (神农架) is located in northwestern Hubei Province. Legend has it that the Chinese civilization’s earliest ancestor, Emperor Yan, also known as Shennong (神农), once used ladders (“jia”) to collect medicinal herbs here. Hence its name of Shennongjia. Shennongjia is a forestry district encompassing several large scenic areas. Its dense forests, unchanged from primitive times, are teeming with plant and animal life. The area is a World Natural Heritage Site. Shennongjia is home to the Shennongjia Savage, one of the Four Unsolved Mysteries of the World and a source of great fascination to many.

The Shennongtan Scenic Area combines the hustle and bustle, the Austrian, the secluded and the beautiful. It has both the rough and the majestic nature of the north and the beauty and femininity of the south. It brings together the essence of the Taihang Mountains, the peaks and peaks, the caves and the greenery, and the fairyland wins Penglai. is the southern gate of Shennongjia Tourism, and Xiangxi is slowly flowing southward. Surrounded by green hills throughout the scenic area, beautiful and quiet. Standing between the green mountains, the statue is driven by the earth, and the eyes are slightly closed, which seems to be thinking about the mysteries of the universe. In the sacrificial area, stepping on the foot is a circular and square pattern representing the heavens and the earth. In the square pattern of the representative place, the five-color stone is the gold, wood, water, fire and earth in the five elements of the doctrine. The characteristic tourist project of the Shenong altar is the local campfire barbecue party. Therefore, there are many jars and torches piled up under the altar. It is said that in addition to the local special performances, you can taste the game barbecue at night. During the period, there are local girls who pay tribute to Shennong Yellow Wine. If you dont drink alcohol, you can show that you dont drink. Unfortunately, we didnt experience the trip when we went. Next time we have the opportunity to experience the bonfire party of Shennongjia. What is it like. The millennium shirt king, already more than 1200 years old, still stands tall and straight, carrying the various kinds of blessings of people, watching the tree full of wishing ropes hanging, I also silently made a wish. Tiansheng Bridge is a new scenic spot just developed by Shennongjia. Here, the waterfall sounds like a thunder, and the bridge is between the two mountains. It is understood that this bridge is named after the long-term scouring of the stream, and it is a combination of bridges, waterfalls, lakes, mountains and trees. It is like a paradise.

Shennongding Scenic Area is a national-level nature reserve with a total area of about 883.6 square kilometers. It is a natural eco-tourism area featuring a well-preserved forest natural ecosystem and characterized by ecological diversity, embodying the main theme of harmonious coexistence between man and nature. It is one of the key scenic spots in Shennongjia. Shennongding Scenic Area is located in the nature reserve in the south of Shennongjia. It is located at the junction of Sichuan and Hubei between the Yangtze River and Hanshui River in China. The peaks are all above 3,000 meters above sea level, which is called Huazhong Roof. The area is 3,250 square kilometers, and the forest land accounts for more than 85%. With an average elevation of 1,700 meters and a maximum of 3,105 meters, there are many climate types. In fact, I began to hear that I had to climb the 2,999 steps on the top of the roof of Huazhong. I refused, but I still want to challenge myself. The clouds on the top of the mountain are like a veil. Every time Shennongding climbs 100 steps, there will be a number. To climb the top, you need 2999. In fact, I think it is easy to take 2999 steps, but the mountain road here is very steep and it is very tired, so it is a test. Human perseverance. I want to give up on the way, I also feel that it is a pity to give up at this time, but for the sake of not regretting myself, comfort yourself and stick to it. Every time you climb a little higher, the forests and plants around you will change~~ When you see the last 47 steps, the excitement in your heart is finally coming. Because of the different altitudes, you can spend all seasons at the foot of the mountain and the top of the mountain. In the words of the locals, there are four seasons and ten different days. Therefore, you should pay more attention to dressing.

Jinhualing is connected to Hongyan Cave in the south, Xiaolongtan in the north, Turf Bay in the east, Changyanwu in the west, 3019 meters above sea level, 107 kilometers away from Songxiangping. The mountain is golden and cold, the climate is cold, the rainfall is abundant, and the forest is dense. The arrow bamboo is like the sea and has beautiful scenery. The golden monkey, which is listed as a national first-class protected animal, has been here to attract many experts to visit. This mountain has become a rare golden monkey and white bear protection area. Also fortunate to see the golden monkey's style. On the car to Jinhualing, the tour guide and we have always said: You must take a deep breath to the Golden Monkey Ridge! Because this is the best spot for Shennongjia air, negative oxygen ions are several times in the city~~~ Frequently smoked friends must come to wash the lungs! ~ Before entering the golden monkey base, everyone should wear the base-sterilized clothes, because this will prevent humans from transmitting the germs to the monkeys, and the monkeys will not scratch the tourists' clothes. (At the same time as the visit, don't throw some snacks of fruits or toys for the monkeys, the administrators will give them a full meal every day.) After half an hour of intimate contact with the monkeys at the golden monkey base, we will go to the next destination. Land: Xiaolongtan. Xiaolongtan and Dalongtan are all looking at rare animals. What is different from Dalongtan is that there are more wild animals in Xiaolongtan, but they are all in cages, otherwise the bears are easy to hurt people. PS: You can also experience a five-star toilet in Shennongjia in Xiaolongtan. You can try it, haha. "Golden Monkey Flying Waterfall" is a model of Shennongjia Waterfall. It is above the cliffs of Wanzhang, passing through the jungle and plunging down.

You don't have to go to Japan to shoot a Japanese blockbuster movie, "The most complete snowy photo guide" 1 Find a nice tree, it is recommended not to be too high, just to be part of the composition. Under the tree, touch your hair to sort out your hair or other movements, then turn on continuous shooting and choose the most natural and beautiful. 2 Don't be afraid of cold! Look for a piece of clean snow to lie down, because the snow sky may be glaring, you can cite your hands to block the glasses slightly, and then compare. Its okay to lie down and close your eyes. 3 Kneading a small snowball to play. Put it in your hand and put it on your head! Small can support the cuteness of people. If it's enough, just pile it up, haha. 4 and the forest photo, this mountain I contracted! There are a lot of actions that can be done here. Jump up and put your hands together so that everyone can use their imagination. 5 Seeing such spectacular scenery, I suddenly remembered "Love Letter": How are you? I'm very good! Shout it out! 6 Gently grab a handful of snow and throw it at the lens. Note that the amount of snow is small, too much to block yourself when it is spread out, and too much will get to the camera and the photographer 7 interact with brightly colored things. For example, equipment on the playground, skis on the ski slopes, or buy some props yourself. 8 The foot is also moving. Kicking and kicking snow is a good choice, but to play new snow, the snow will be very hard, not only can you kick the foot 9 walk forward and smile back. Believe in the snow and ice, your smile is the most beautiful and warmest sun above is some of my little advice on taking pictures in the snow! Ask for a favorite collection
