Experience the thrill of a hike through a waterfall, relax within warm mineral springs, and explore a mellow side of China.

Here, villagers continue to live life as they have for 3,000 years, preserving important cultural practices such as weaving, folk music, pottery making and cooking techniques.Learn More
