An ancient stone town by Li River, Guilin

2012-02-14 | Life in Guilin | Comments(0) |   Views:(759)

 
At the Yangmeiling (杨梅岭) of Putao (葡萄) Town of Yangshuo County there hides a small stone town with four stone gates, which need 3-4 hours to walk through all of them. Embraced by continuous mountains, this ancient stone town is apparently isolated from the bustling and hustling outside world. Thanks to that, it still looks like an unaffected Shangri-la where the local live a simple and autarkical life and remains a wonderful destination for hiking lovers.

Known as a section of the scenic water system of "two river and four lakes" in Guilin, the Mulong Lake (木龙湖), literally Wooden Dragon Lake, is an artificial lake connecting the Li River in the east and channeling the water into the downtown area of the city. Leaning against the several hundreds old Song city wall and the Diecai Hill, the lake was named after the Mulong Hole on the upper part of the hill, and so is the 45-meter-high Mulong Tower and the Mulong Arch Bridge stretching over the Mulong Lake. On the other and of the bridge there are waterside pavilions where actresses in Chinese ancient dress perform classic Chinese music show in the evening.

The winter in Guilin fells with rain finally in December. The sharply dropping temperature (4 Celsius degree) at the last week of the month colored some trees such as maples and maidenhair trees and is decorating the city with colorful leaves. Thank goodness, it cleared up again and a blue sky of spring contrasted vividly with the leaves, creating an extraordinarily beautiful scene. To catch the masterpieces of the nature, I went out to take some pictures of that specially.
