History

The territory of today’s Xianning belonged to Jing Chu in the Xia and Shang Dynasties ( about 2200-1100 BC), Nan County in the Qin Dynasty(221-206 BC ), [more]

  Located in the southwest of Chongyang County, with Caidun to the east, Xiaoling to the south, Linxiang and Puqi to the west, Guikou to the north, Shaping Town is the third largest town in Chongyang. Situated in the southwest of Shaping Town, Fengjiping is also called Boar Woods as there are always boars here; what’s more, it’s hailed as “Jiuzhaigou Valley in south Hubei” for its beautiful scenery.

  You will never be feeling hot when walking into the verdant forest of Fengjiping. Stream chanted in the forest, and the clear water appeared white-waved. The cool and beautiful pool had sweet water quality. The weeping vines on the stone bridge were like silk, and the lush branches of ancient camphor tree were like a huge umbrella at the foot of mountain, giving shade to the village.

  The broiling sunshine became warm and brisk after penetrating green leaves, making the sound of cicadas more moist and languid. We would have the natural feeling of birds singing in ravine described in poetry, when we saw the high mountains, emerald gullies, dancing butterflies, as well as the liquid, musical note of twitter from the peaceful valley that was also pleasant to ear. With cliffs on both sides embracing each other, the steep Xiafei Rock looked very dangerous. According to the local people, the Xiafei Rock had the original meaning of impassable rock. Just in the dry season, trickling stream flew through the steep mountain straight down. And it would be a magnificent view for mountain torrent running straight down in rainy season.

  Fengjiping meets Linxiang County of Hunan province to the south, and the deeper you walked into the hill, the harder it would be to walk through it. Deep in the forest, there was bushy and gloomy grass, and in the deep and dangerous gully lay a plank road which could only let one person pass in the narrow place. In city, the most indispensable vehicle was the car, while in the hill, it was the horse. And we have seen several caravans along the way. In the hill, they needed horses to carry lumber, to build house, and to transport sand and bricks, thus making horses the necessary member of households in the hill, and horse carried the hope of them.

  The beauty of Fengjiping was more than what pens could describe. The reporter deeply understood that photographs cannot present its special dynamic and that even photographing could hardly reproduce its limitless vibrancy. And you can enjoy its charm only by experiencing it in person.
