Mengding Mountain, located in Ya'an City, Sichuan Province, is not only a world-class tea culture sacred mountain, but also a good place for leisure and summer. When you are away from leisure every year, you will go to the mountains and this year is no exception. After entering the mountain gate, take the cableway up the mountain. The low and slow viewing cableway is suitable for watching the tea garden.

Mengding Mountain is a scenic spot with a very high degree of experience. In addition to the Buddha worship and the fresh air, you can also walk in the canopy to go through the jungle. However, since Mengding Mountain is a sacred mountain of tea culture, it is natural to have a tea-related experience. Here you can watch kung fu tea techniques and tea performances. Baiwen is worse than seeing it. Its better to have a try. How can you enjoy it? Its interesting to learn how to make straw shoes and experience tea in the Song Dynasty. It is said that Japanese matcha is also learned from this time, so we have to know more about it.

There are two museums on the Mengding Mountain. One is on the mountain. It is a red museum. It records the hard years and history of the year. The friends who like it can find out. The other is at the foot of the mountain. It is a tea culture museum. I also like it. Museum. Although I have to give another ticket, it is only 10 yuan. Not only can you learn a lot of tea-related knowledge, such as tea classification, etc., you can also see a lot of tea, tea, tea and other related equipment, as well as small exhibitions of tea rooms in various countries, quite fun. This money does not lose money What is your favorite tea room?
