Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen: Welcome to Zhangjiajie for sightseeing. I'm very glad to be your tour guide. Today the scenic spot we are going to visit is the largest view platform of Zhang Jiajie called Huangshi Village. It is also one of the concentrate scenic spots here. People always say: "It is no avail of your trip to Zhangjiajie, unless you come to the summit of Huangshi Village. "A famous poem said :"For a better view of a further distance, ascend one more level. "So, to appreciate the fantastic scenery, please follow me to climb up the mountain through a narrow and zigzag way. There was only one way to come to the top of the mountain in ancient time, today the road we are going was paved about 10 years ago.
Now, Please pay attention and listen！Have you heard a piece of beautiful music coming from ahead? That's the local Tujia girls' singing folk song. Standing on the singing platform, the beautiful and well-dressed girls are singing and dancing to greet the guests from all over the country. Their sweet songs will make you feel interested in the local customs, and the kindness and hospitality of the local girls will make you feel relaxed and cheerful than ever. at this time ,Have you know the truth of the warmth of the honest natives?
Now please look at the mountain on the right side.There is a round pillar about 20 meters high, and there is a stone case on it. The case is about 3 meters long, 1.5 meters wide with a stone slab covering half of it. 5 green pine trees are standing surround it.There is a tale about the scenic spot .Zhang Liang, with the official title Liuhou, had ever hidden 3 heavenly books in the case. Which were given by his master named Huangshi Taoist. After the war ended Zhangliang took out the books and put them on another place. But he forgot to shut off the case. That’s why we can see a case half opened. Because the case had once hidden the heavenly books, it is called Treasure Case of Heavenly Books.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Please look forward. there is a narrow way between two mountains, just like the saying goes“If one man guards the pass, then a thousand are unable to get through”That is the Southern Gate to Heaven. This way, please. From the direction of my hand, you can see the Magic Sea-suppressing Needle. The rock pops up from the level ground, As if using its strong body to rise up the whole mountain. The Golden Whip Rock and the Magic Sea-suppressing Needle stands nearby, forming a graceful and magnificent scene.
But what’s the single pillar standing in front of us? It’s rising high from the level ground up to the sky, about 300 meters high. That’s the famous “Southern Pillar of Heaven .It stands under the Southern Gate to Heaven, Hence the name.It is the symbol of the Forest Protecting Festival in Zhang Jiajie. It is the miniature of the whole scenery here and also the essence of the peculiar quartz peak landform in Zhang Jiajie.
You may wanna ask, how does quartz sandstone peak landform come into being? According to scientific research, more than three hundred million years ago, there used to be a vast ocean, about a million year ago, as a result of the shock of the waves, the quartz sandstone laid about five hundred meters deep at the bottom of sea. Later, due to the movement of earth’s crust, the land rise out of the water. After that, a lot of tiny sandstone was carried away by the constant flow of water; With the aid of gravity, the rocks crumbled. Then after many years of combined effects of rains and streams, the peculiar quartz sandstone peak physiognomy gradually formed in Wulingyuan area.
Now we have climbed up to the Star Gathering Stage successfully. As the ancient poem goes: "When you ascend to the summit, all other mountains are inferior" The imposing tower is so high, that you can almost gather the stars in the sky. What a romantic place! Especially at night, standing on the stage you can't help but stretch out your hands to gather the twinkling stars encircling on your head.
This man-made pavilion is called Six Wonders Pavilion. Why it is named "Six Wonder Pavilion"? the"Six wonders" refer to the special mountains, springs, rocks, clouds, plants and animals.
That’s all for today .Welcome to Huangshi Village again. Thank you.
