Shi Ling brand

According to the Record of Donghu County, there are huge stones in the south of the Yangtze River, which are about sixty or seventy feet across, such as rafts, so they are called stone tokens and hence stone place names. The stone token is 32 meters high, 12 meters wide at the top, 13 meters wide at the bottom, 4 meters thick and weighs more than 4300 tons. It is magnificent and magnificent from a distance. In the later Zhou Dynasty of the Five Dynasties, Xiazhou Prefecture was once established in Shipai. In Jianyan of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1130 A.D.), Yiling County of Xiazhou moved to Shibishan and Shaoxing recovered for five years (1135 A.D.) and established Shipai for six or seven years.

Dengshi stone

Four marvelous stones on the top of Wuli Mountain resemble the image of Tang monks and apprentices taking sutras from the West in Journey to the West. Whenever the sunset shines and the sunset sets set against the top of the peak, they can be seen from afar, as if they were the figures on the screen of lanterns and shadows. They are vivid and vivid, hence the name "Lantern Shadow Stone". When Mr. Guo Moruo visited the Dengying gorge, he once wrote a poem: "the monk of the Tang Dynasty is the head of the mountain, and the shadow is the pig and the monkey."

The most famous lampstone is Sha Monk Stone, which is known as "the first stone of the Yangtze River in ten thousand miles". It stands on the top of the cliff, mushroom-shaped, weighing more than 100 tons, the bottom of the load-bearing section is only 200 square centimeters, carrying an average weight of nearly half a ton per square centimeter, can be called a world wonder.

Mingyue Bay

When the Haohao Yangtze River rushed to the Shipai reach, it made a sharp left turn of 110 degrees and turned eastward, forming a huge crescent shape, which is called the First Bay of the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River.

The boat crosses Mingyue Bay, sits on the cruise ship and looks over the river in the distance. It will be found that the continuous hills on both sides of the river seem to block the rolling Yangtze River, but the boat enters and retreats into the mountains, and the road turns around peaks and turns suddenly and opens up. Therefore, when Mr. Guo Moruo crossed the Shipai overlooking the First Bay, he expressed the sigh of "there is no way out in the mountain, there is no other day in the Bay".

Dengying cave

The Lantern Shadow Cave is deep and narrow with a length of about 1500 meters. The karst landform in the cave is peculiar and the topography of the cave is changeable. The "Five-color Qiyin Stone" in the cave is the most wonderful landscape of the Lantern Shadow Cave. It is rich in color and interwoven with black, white, yellow, grey and green. The color boundary is clear. It can hear the sound of gongs and drums when it is struck by hand. It is amazing. There is an underground river with a drop of up to 30 meters in the cave. The water flows slowly and silently, or in the shape of a flood bell or a ripple. Ears, or the sound of piano, walking in this dreamlike underground world, fascinating.

Toad spring

At the foot of Fanzi Mountain on the South Bank of Dengying Gorge, there was a big stone standing suddenly, like a clam with open mouth and open eyes. Behind it, a spring is flowing all the year round, and the water is delicious. It is a good source of water for cooking tea and wine. This is the famous clam spring. "Tea Saint" Lu Yu in Tang Dynasty was known as "the fourth spring in the world", and Lu You also praised it as "the fourth spring in the world". In addition to Erlu, Su Zhi, Huang Tingjian, Wang Shizhen and Zhang Zhidong all left poems and essays on Yongquan.

Yang Jia Xi

Yang Jiaxi was named after the descendants of the Yang generals of the Song Dynasty who emigrated there. Mysterious Yangjiaxi drifting takes military drifting as its theme and is full of strong military training color. It is divided into dynamic drifting and static drifting. Here drifting, tourists ride military cars, wear military uniforms, sing military songs, kayak, like water military training, all the way to the rapids, across the dangerous beach, you can not only appreciate the excitement of surfing and rushing the beach, but also feel the leisure of boating in Pinghu Lake.

Main attractions

Water family

Watermen are at the junction of Longjin River and Yangtze River. Several ancient sailing boats stand up against the wind. Small fishing boats scatter fishing nets. The Pavilion in the first gorge is exquisite and unique. On the other side of the stream, a dam has been built to intercept the quiet Longxi River, raising the river by 1-2 meters. The river is green, the trees are verdant, and the mottled Longxi Bridge crosses it. Several small fishing boats moored quietly under the bridge. "Spring waves are green under the Longxi Bridge, and the shocks are shining like a dream, which is fascinating and intly intoxicating."

From generation to generation, people living in the Xiajiang River have formed a unique way of living and working habits with the persistence of relying on mountains to eat mountains and water to eat water. Among them, the most distinctive one is the fisherman's home.

Many people in the Three Gorges have lived on boats for generations. They live on fishing all the year round. They move on the water and fight against the wind and waves. They are accompanied by fishing boats, thus forming a "water family".

Today, although fishermen's lives have improved, this ancient custom has been preserved for a long time. The younger generation still cast nets to catch fish, and the old fishing culture continues in the wind and rain.

Three Gorges people "carry two dams on one shoulder and two streams on one river". Stones, waterfalls, caves and springs are here... A variety of landscape elements are ingeniously combined. The mountains have great banks of mountains, the water is soft and beautiful, the caves have magic caves, the waterfalls have magnificent waterfalls, and the rocks have stone temperament.

The ultimate nature of nature, there is the beauty of floods and desolation, there is the beauty of desolation, there is the beauty of tenderness, here is more powerful beauty.

White wall Qingwa stone slab road, small bridge water suspension tower, withered vine old tree magpie nest, machine gun fortress old trench, Qishi karst cave ancient castle, in the moment you enter the scenic area, your heart will be destined to stay here for a long time, the whole scenic area is filled with fairyland-like dream scenery, the beauty here is palpitating, the beauty here is suffocating!

Stream side family

The people near the stream, half landed and half entered the water, surrounded by mountains, accompanied by green hills, green waters, sunset grass trees, mist and mist, like pictures.

Garlic, grain, chili pepper, castor-coat and hat hang from the hanging-feet building. Smoke curled from the roof, ducks and geese frolicked in the stream in front of the door, and the dog "Wang Wang" barked downstairs from the hanging feet, as if to say "Welcome". On the big stone in front of the hanging-feet building, several mountain girls were beating and washing clothes, singing enthusiastic love songs, banging sticks on the slate, making a crisp and melodious sound, as if playing a love song.

Mountain family

The "hanging-feet building" of the people on the hill is called "balustrade architecture" by modern architects. The Xiajiang area is a steep terrain, with many houses built by the people of the Three Gorges according to the mountain situation, wooden structure, bamboo forests and bananas clustered in front of and behind the houses.

When encountering high ridges, it is necessary to erect columns or build walls in order to run into the eaves of the main house, so it is called "suspension tower".

Its unique features are low front and high back, with corridors on the side and balconies on the back, commonly known as the "turning tower on horseback".

Generally divided into two or three layers, upper layer ventilation, dry, moistureproof, * is the living room, the lower layer is pig cowshed ring or stacked debris, but also to prevent the attack of poisonous snake and beast.

The suspension building is large or small. Generally speaking, it is a four-row fan, three-room, or six-row fan, five-room, while the big family has seven pillars, four-horse courtyard. There is a winding corridor in the suspension building, and the winding corridor is also equipped with railings.

Because of the dangerous terrain of Linjiang River, a family's house often has three or four levels, like steps.

Step into the mountain house, a few steps, you will be introduced to a primitive simple house, into the house, through a door, another step to lead you into another room, as if hide-and-seek, the corridor is tortuous, hide-and-seek, outsiders can enter, but it is difficult to walk out.

Walking in these old houses, one can appreciate the Xiajiang people's individuality of conforming to nature, constantly struggling with nature, persistently creating life and desperately enjoying life.

And the roof coverings, there are also a lot of exquisite, there are mud tiles, there are thatched grass, slate and green tiles, they have their own preferences, also have their own views.

People who build mud tiles will say "loess on the house, family are happy"; people who build grass will say "bacon incense in the thatched house"; people who build slate will say "beneath the slate is blessed".

But it all reflects the optimism, fun and love of life of the people of the Xiajiang River.

Walking up to the hanging-feet tower, the cornices are high, the winding corridors are winding, looking around, the scenery is picturesque, and there are many poems and paintings of the castles in the air. There are poems and exclamations: "Wonderful mountains, beautiful waters, wonderful balls, people on the mountains are beautiful. Hanging foot upstairs for a night, ten years of dreaming is also romantic.

They won a brilliant victory known as "China's Stalingrad Defence War", shattered the Japanese invaders'dream of coveting Chongqing and successfully blocked the Japanese invaders' iron hooves in the southwest of China.
