I never found out the name of this village.But it was very peaceful there and for sure there have not been so many foreigners there.Nice hike to go up there and very good view over the city.Unfortunately I lost a lot of fotos from this peaceful place...At the top of the mountain there is the lovely temple and behind this temple leads a small walkway towards the village.There is a small park with tables were you can sit and overview the fields and look down the valley.
Many people visit Guoqing temple.But there are 2 more very interesting and beautiful temples.There is a street and a walkway behind Guoqing temple which leads up the mountain.I used to hike up (besides,great canyon and interesting spots)and discovered on top of the mountain a very lovely village and a lovely small temple .I spoke with the monks there(some spoke English) and was stunned and pleasantly surprised by their welcoming,warm,friendly behaviour.Spent some afternoons relaxing at this area.
While teaching at the Tiantai experimental primary school in the summer of 2005, I was taken to The Fairy Valley, so called because of it's extream beauty. It begins with a slow accent and climbs to great heights. All the way along you will walk on a stone walk way passing many waterfalls. I find myself at a loss for words .
Ask the locals how to get there or better yet ask someone to take you.
On the wall, it writes: Jiao Guan Zhong Chi
People are passing by, but no one ever stops and raises the question of what it means. Do all Chinese people ever understand its meaning? I doubt.
Here is the explanation of first two essential words(read from right to left side):
* Jiao means truth of things
* Guan means practice
Ancient Chinese buddism already told people to first understand the truth of everything on our planet and then to pratice according to the truth.
