Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village is located at the foot of Leigong Mountain in the northeast of Leishan County, Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, Guizhou Province. It is said that it is the result of living in more than 1000 Miao residents. It is a place that preserves the cultural integrity of Miao "primitive ecology". It is connected by more than ten natural villages built on mountains. It is the largest Miao village in China and even in the world. Go to the viewing platform in the morning to welcome the dawn of Miaozhai. When I went out at about 5 a.m., the sky was still dark, and only the stars and the full moon were shining like the lamps in the sky. Along the mountain road to the sightseeing platform, the dawn of the eastern sky is slightly dew. Overlooking the Miao Village, the morning mist, quiet and quiet.
As the largest Miao Village in the world, Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village has naturally received a lot of attention. So it also became the first scenic spot that I decided to come to during my trip to Guizhou. Its very noticeable is the local Miao culture and wind-rain bridge, suspension tower and these architectural cultures. [Ticket Price] The full-price ticket for a thousand Miao villages in Xijiang is 100 yuan per person, and the half-price ticket for a thousand Miao villages in Xijiang is 50 yuan. In the scenic spot, you can also buy 20 yuan of scenic spot fare. There are four roundtrips from the ticket office to the gate of the scenic spot and from the No. 1 Wind and Rain Bridge to the viewing platform. If you can choose to buy tickets + tickets online, the package can be 105 yuan. [Open Time] All day long, we saw many tour groups arriving at 1000 Miao Village in the evening when we visited. [Play time] 2 days. In fact, if it's just a simple circle, one day is enough. But if there is enough time, it is suggested to take a two-day tour, because at the same time, you can see the most beautiful sunset and brilliant night scenery, as well as the early morning smoke of the Miaozhai scenery. Traffic to thousands of Miao villages is still a lot of traffic, mainly from Kaili directly to thousands of Miao villages and Leishan directly to thousands of Miao villages. We are a thousand Miao villages directly from Kaili City, where there are normal tourist buses. The local taxi we chose, 30 yuan each, was pulled directly to the entrance of the scenic spot. [Tourist route] See the chart below. In fact, the whole Miao Village is not as big as you imagined. If you want to really go through every street well, it is really very, very huge. However, from the entrance of the scenic area to the No. 1 Wind and Rain Bridge, then turning point to the viewing platform is a straight line, during which you can visit the Museum of thousands of Miao Village, not far from the museum, Baishui River is a stage where you can see performances. [Accommodation Information] We chose a place of accommodation which is about 100 meters behind the museum. This place is very convenient for traveling. You can come back when you are tired of visiting. The whole Miao Village is basically full of accommodation. Since August, the online accommodation prices of thousands of Miao villages have generally ranged from 100 to 200, requiring early booking. Of course, the price of the viewing room is basically over 400, and it is not very cheap in off-peak season. [Warm reminder] 1. In the parking lot at the entrance of the scenic spot, there is a car directly back to Carey, so there is no need to make the scenic spot bus to the ticket office at all. 2. Battery cars can also be purchased in scenic spots, 5 yuan for each section. Because of point 1, it is more appropriate to buy battery cars in segments. 3. In fact, the distance of each battery car is not very long, so it's about 1 kilometer. I'm not tired at all. So if I want to save money, I can actually walk. 4. There is no ticket-checking place in the scenic spot anymore, but the museums and performances in the scenic spot need ticket-checking, and a ticket can only be visited once. But it's worth seeing. 5. There are usually two performances in the scenic area. The ticket is free at 12 noon. Night performances need to be purchased separately. Legend has it that they are better than noon performances. In addition, you can pay more attention to the information at that time. In the peak season, there will be an extra show. We will have an extra show at 2 p.m.
Xijiang 1000 Miaozhai Scenic Area, 100 yuan for admission tickets, 30 yuan for battery cars, parking fees by the hour. Battery car on two stations, viewing platform and No. 1 Wind and Rain Bridge, viewing platform can overlook the whole Miaozhai, very spectacular. Thousands of Miao villages are said to have visited the whole scenic area from Wind and Rain Bridge No. 1 to No. 7. In fact, the scenic area is very large. Besides those bridges, there are some beautiful alleys, Gage, Yedong, Houjiazhuang and so on. In addition, there are some places to see, museums, singing and dancing performances, ancient paper making, Miao ancient paper making and so on. God.
There is a shuttle bus from Kaili bus station to the entrance, sixteen yuan, an hour to come back, and also at the entrance of the scenic spot to buy tickets back to Kaili. In addition, there is a station inside the scenic spot, to Leishan, Taikeng, 90 tickets, just arriving at the entrance, many people asked this and asked that, the second Wind and Rain Bridge opposite the 6 inn, said to take his home to live, and then was pitted, opened a single room of 100 yuan to his home, The room is small, and the air conditioner is not given the remote control. The next morning I went out. I came back at 11:30 and checked out my room. I still had everything in my room and the door was open. I was happy to play. I didn't have any mood. I suggest that you order online. Those who are puzzled at the door are more puzzled. If you enter the room, you can reserve a large number of rooms. There is nothing to see. Play, go once or can, do not recommend to go the second time, are commercial streets, inns and hotels, I heard that almost all the people who open this shop are from other places.
Qianhu Miaozhai, the third station of colorful Guizhou, is an important part of the Miao people in southeastern Guizhou. So far, the traditional Miao village buildings, Miao clothes, silver ornaments and food culture have been preserved. The parking lot in the scenic spot is very large, and the car is parked in the ecological parking lot according to the guide plate. From the parking lot to the gate, the sewage from the roadside restaurants is running across the street, smelling stench. I hope the scenic spot will be corrected properly. It's really dark for thousands of Miao villages. Entering the scenic spot, the commercial atmosphere is very strong. Rows of businessmen are selling special products of Datong Xiaoyi Miaozhai. The viewing platform is full of visitors who change their seedling clothes to take photos. They are not in a hurry. They will rent more beautiful and reasonable seedling clothes to take photos by the Wind and Rain Bridge. The singing and dancing performances have time intervals. The venues are very hot and there are many tourists. Fortunately, the performances are very wonderful and the people of Miaozhai feel the colorful singing and dancing. Miaozhai Long Table Banquet has high mountains and running water. We went to Yedongzhai Long Table Banquet. We had a good meal. Everyone had a good time. We deeply appreciated Miaozhai's sister's hospitality and hospitality. Coming to thousands of Miao villages in Xijiang to explore the ancient Miao villages adds a colorful touch to Guizhou's trip.
(1) 100 yuan for tickets, 20 yuan for sightseeing buses (only four rides), 3 yuan for parking, 30 yuan for 24 hours a day, more than one day to start accumulating again by the hour. (2) Tourist tickets can actually be purchased without buying, from the ticket office to the core scenic spot on foot. The first impression of the whole scenic area is very impressive. In fact, the core scenic area is not big enough to walk along the main road. If you want to climb the mountain and take some paths that tourists don't go to, it may take some time. The night view of Miaozhai is a bright spot, so most of them will stay overnight. (3) Self-driving cars can only park outside the scenic area. We should first bring the things we stay in at night into the scenic spots, so as to avoid wrongdoing. When I first went there, I watched a lot of people coming in and out of the scenic area carrying suitcases. In fact, if you live in a hotel on the main road, if you live in a hotel halfway up the hill, then the suitcase is not very convenient. The slate roads are not irregular, they are all climbing slopes. (4) The scenic spot is divided on both sides along the river course. In view of the panoramic view of the top of the mountain, the development is not very good. Living here can see the opposite panoramic view, the mountain is not very high, the observation platform on foot can not climb many slopes, it does not take much time, you can not take a sightseeing bus. (5) There are a lot of newly built houses in the scenic area. The scale is really shocking, but the scenic area is full of local cars, which run rampantly, and it doesn't feel very good. (6) Thousands of Miao villages in Xijiang are the largest Miao villages in China and even in the world. Mountains surrounded on all sides, mountains overlapping, rain and mist lingering like a natural ink painting scroll. Terraces are directly connected to the clouds in accordance with the mountain situation. The clear water of the Baihe River runs through the village like a jade belt. Wind and rain bridges cross the river. Suspended foot towers built in accordance with the mountain extend from the foot of the river.
Xu Xiake is my idol. Once a year long distance and three short trips are my small goals in life. This year, I chose Damei Guizhou, the mode of travel is still aircraft + car rental, self-driving throughout the motherland Dahao River and Mountains. Xijiang Qianhu Miaozhai is the first stop of Guizhou's trip. Here we can really understand what is green water, green mountains and beautiful rivers and mountains. I also felt the pride of Tianjin people for the first time. Because, here Tianjin people can enjoy half price tickets, children under 14 years old are also free, a big compliment. Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village is a place to preserve the cultural integrity of the Miao "primitive ecology", which is connected by more than 10 natural villages built by mountains, and is the largest Miao village in China and even in the world. Miao people can be traced back to the legendary age of Yanhuang five or six thousand years ago. At that time, there was Jiuli tribal alliance in the lower reaches of the Yellow River and the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. On the Gansu-Shaanxi Loess Plateau, two other tribal groups headed by Yandi Shennong and Huangdi Xuanyuan were formed. Later, Yandi and Huangdi united to defeat Chiyou. After the defeat of Jiuli group in Chiyou, most of them migrated southward, and began the migration history of the Miao people. The legend of Chiyou is still widely spread among the Miao people. They always believe in Chiyou, especially its ancestor. There are two distinctive buildings in Xijiang Qianhu Miaozhai. One is the Wind-Rain Bridge, also known as the Flower Bridge, which is built on the rivers of major traffic routes. It is usually composed of bridges, towers and pavilions. It is built of wood. Because pedestrians can take shelter from the wind and rain in the past, it is called the Wind-Rain Bridge. Traditional Wind and Rain Bridge does not need a nail. It only cuts through numerous holes of different sizes on the pillars. It connects with mortise and tenon, obliquely crosses the straight sleeve, crisscrosses vertically and horizontally. Its structure is very precise and firm. There are towers and pavilions on the top of Fengyuqiao. They have many layers. The cornices of each layer are raised. They are painted with Phoenix and carved dragons. On the top of the pavilion are some mascots, such as precious gourds and Millennium cranes. There are fences and benches on both sides of the bridge deck to form corridors. Wind and Rain Bridge is convenient for pedestrians to take shelter from the wind and rain to rest their feet. It is also a welcoming place for Zhuang, Dong, Yao and Miao nationalities. There are now five wind and rain bridges connecting the banks of the Baishui River in the thousands of Miao villages in Xijiang River. Another characteristic building should be the hanging-feet building. For a long time, people in Xijiang Miao Village have never occupied their own good fields to build houses because of their large population and scarcity of good fields. In order not to occupy good fields but to build more houses, the Miao people give full play to their wisdom and build houses according to the mountains. The Miao people in Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village mainly build wooden hanging-feet buildings. The structure is a bucket-piercing Xieshan Peak. It can be divided into two categories: flat floor suspension tower and slope suspension tower, which are generally three-storey, four-storey, three-storey or five-storey, four-storey structures. The bottom layer is used to store production tools, keep poultry and livestock, store fertilizers or use toilets. The second floor is used as living room, hall, bedroom and kitchen. The outside of the hall is built with a unique "Beauty Reliance", which is called "Stage Interest" in Miao language. It is mainly used for cooling and rest. It is a major feature of Miao architecture. The third layer is mainly used for storing grain, feed and other production and living materials. Reading ten thousand volumes of books is better than traveling ten thousand miles. This trip to Guizhou can be said to be an encyclopedic trip. I will come back to Guizhou.
The world's largest natural Miao village, but with the development of tourism, it has become more and more commercialized. The houses in Xijiang Miao Village are characteristic. They are all hanging-feet buildings. The whole Miao Village is built according to the mountains. They are naturally integrated. The houses on the hills and the streams under the hills shine together, forming a beautiful landscape painting with ethnic minorities'characteristics, and the countryside scenery is very eye-catching. To get a panoramic view of the Miao Village, you need to go to the high viewing platform inside the village, and you can get a full view of the whole village. The tourist ticket is 20 yuan, which is used to take the bus between Miaozhai Street and Miaozhai Street at the gate of the scenic spot, as well as the battery car between the main street and the mountaintop viewing station. In fact, the ticket can not be bought, there is not much time for walking, the road is better, and the mountain road to the viewing platform is not very high.
I went in to see the night scene, so I stayed there for a night. There are several good inns in the scenic area. It is suggested to stay in the inn near the viewing platform. Business streets and museums during the day, night view is great, and in the morning, I went to the viewing platform to take pictures, which is worth visiting for the scenery.
At present, the thousands of Miao villages in Xijiang are not too commercialized. Compared with Lijiang, Yunnan, Dali, Zhejiang, Jiaxing and other places, most of the original folk customs and customs are still preserved here, but more business is done here from other places. The local people live in them, and often see their original special customs such as red and white festivals and National festivals. In fact, the night scenes are beautifully decorated with lights. Personally, I think it's better to look at it during the day.
