The ancient village at junction of Sichuan and Yunnan has been isolated from world for 300 years. The roofs of entire village are connected, and each household is connected.
Cities step by step develop from villages, and there are many more villages that have some very unique customs, and what we are going to mention today is such a village. His name is Eya, which sounds very exotic, but he is from a village with a long history in our country.
Located at junction of Sichuan and Yunnan, with little contact with outside world, this way of life has existed for three hundred years. When building houses, roofs of entire village are connected together, and they sleep together, you do not need to close door, let's consider it's detailed.
1. History of Russia and Asia
Eya, this place is located in Sichuan and belongs to Liangshan Prefecture. According to local people living in Lijiang, this village was once a relatively ordinary village, but later a group of people dragged their families and brought their mouths to settle here, and they also brought some unique customs with them, so this is place gradually became special.
The group of people who migrated is said to be manager of Lijiang City Musi Tuxi. He brought some people to Oia, and since then they live here and have little contact with local population. outside world., self-sufficient and relatively primitive in cultural terms, retaining custom of one wife with several husbands or one husband with several wives. This is roughly their story.
Second, a trip to Russia and Asia
Location Eyi is indeed very different, as it is hidden in a deep canyon and also located in a deep mountain on edge of county, but in fact, its neighbors are not too few.
If you want to get to Éii, in addition to winding paths you have to take, you also need to ride horseback and take cable car. With such a difficult route, it is clear that it has been isolated from world for hundreds of years, it is too difficult to get out or in.
Moreover, when road is not paved, people leave village for outside world, sliding on iron cables and crossing a large river from above. People are worried.
After crossing this river, we have to go another eight hours, and not only on foot, but also on horseback, we must hurry and reach Eia by evening. These steep cliff roads are result of hard work of generation after generation of Russians and Asians.
3. Life in Russia and Asia
When I arrived at Eriya Village, I had to marvel at wisdom of my ancestors. The first thing that caught my eye was shape of buildings in village, similar to a beehive, close to each other, but after a long time eyes get a little tired. But small building is very beautiful in evening.
Under setting sun, small buildings lined with houses seem to be covered with a new layer, which is quite beautiful. The roofs of houses are connected to each other and are usually relatively flat. This is done to prevent attacks by some gangsters. Nowadays, the roofs are used to dry corn and other grains.
The adults in village are shy, but children are very lively and hospitable. Most of kids would run up to say hello when they saw us. The villagers also warmly invited them to look inside villa. In fact, house is nothing special. It looks like an ordinary house, and area is even larger. It is also full of people's love of life.
The houses in palisade are built close to each other. Outsiders can hardly get here. The lanes in middle are also very narrow. The walls are not only made of stone, but also some pebbles to make house look prettier.
People do not need to lock their doors at night, they are neighbors for many years, even relatives, and trust each other very much. In addition, house also has a supply of water, I am worried that roofs will be connected together, and if one of houses catches fire and spreads, stored water can be used to quickly extinguish fire.
Marriage customs here are still relatively old, and now there is more and more contact with outside world. Having received a new education, they began to live same life as outside world, and they are older. The family is older marriage customs.
Standing on mountain opposite village, looking from afar, green trees and loess are also dotted with small black stone buildings.
There are hilly mountains behind village, crops are grown in fields. The sky is blue and white clouds drift slowly like a scroll of Xanadu pictures.
The shock that Aya causes in people is far from being in photographs. It is better to go to this village in person, climb over mountains and stand on land of Aya. Everything is worth it. The combination of natural scenery and humanistic landscape is sure to give you a new experience. We also invite you to try local delicacies and feel measured life here. I think you will not be disappointed. Greetings to all. I wish you all a pleasant trip!
