The only province in China without plains, houses are built on rocks, and every scenery is beautiful
With development of various video software, we can also see beautiful scenery around world from comfort of our homes. As for country, some provinces unknown to us began to leave circle, they, with their unique charm, attracted a large wave of people who wanted to go there. One of provinces is Guizhou province, in our opinion, it is a remote province from which there is nowhere to go.
But, having got to know him for real, I will call him really fragrant. Mountains, rivers and lakes are only ones here that you can't go around whole country, and customs of local minorities cannot be fully understood, even if you read poetry and books. Therefore, only when you actually come here and observe with your own eyes, you will be able to understand this charming area.
(1) Surrounded by mountains
There are many landforms all over country, and Guizhou is one of them. This is a province full of mountains. Wherever you go, you need to climb mountains. But mountains also create a lot of beauty here.
First of all, this is method of terraced farming, which we should study in geography textbooks. Layer upon layer of fields stretch out like steps. Whenever irrigation is needed, fields are covered with water like mirrors reflecting one after other.
Secondly, because there are too many mountains and rivers, there are also many isolated places with many rocks. Cliffs have always been a relatively sacred creature in our mythology. The top of mountain here is often surrounded by clouds and mist. Many gods are said to live there.
With development of aerial photography technology, we can also use drones to take pictures from top of mountain. On tops of towering mountains and rivers stand characteristic houses, surrounded by clouds and mists, it seems that they are really infected with a magical spirit.
Where there are mountains, there must be water, because most mountains and rivers are a source of water. There must be rivers or lakes at foot of many mountains. There are many large rivers, such as Beipanjiang.
Sometimes waves are rough, mixed with angry sounds, which scares people away. Sometimes quiet and quiet, without ripples. In some parts of river, older brothers and younger sisters can also be seen rowing bamboo boats, singing folk songs and playing in water.
(2) Cultural wealth
Because mountain roads are difficult to walk, this place was not influenced by culture of Central Plains in ancient times. On contrary, there are many ethnic minorities that have multiplied at expense of mountains and rivers in mountains. This ethnic minority culture, developed from mountains and rivers, is also slightly different.
Because of barrier of mountains, ethnic minorities are not really united, but individual. Due to slightly different residential areas, different cultures naturally differ from each other. But since they all originated from mountains and rivers, there are common features at some levels.
Currently, According to actual situation, there are many ethnic minorities living here, but each ethnic group has many subordinate ethnic groups. For example, Miao nationality is divided into many branches, such as Baiwang Miao nationality, Chiayi Miao nationality, and so on. Because of different species, there are also differences in customs, dress, and so on.
Especially when it comes to clothing, we know that Miao people usually like to use silverware to decorate their clothes. But different Miao people have differences in how particular clothes should be worn, how to wear them, and what shape they are.
People can often tell who is a Miao resident by clothes they wear. You can also tell by their clothes that they live in roughly what region.
Furthermore, the differences between various Miao ethnic groups also lead to emergence of different cultures here. Cultural differences are also reflected in various aspects. First, there are buildings, some of which are drum towers, some are stilt buildings, and appearance and decoration are slightly different.
Secondly, there are customs, especially marriage customs. Some Miao people have to get married in morning and some Miao people have to get married in evening. There are also differences in sacrifices. Also, there are differences in language, songs, etc.
The language is easy to understand and different dialects are used in different regions. Different regions also have different folk songs, such as different folk songs about young men caring for younger sisters. In this way, different cultures come together, making this province rich in minority cultures.
(3) Rich food
Because of excellent natural environment, biodiversity here is also very high, so there are many delicacies that we cannot eat elsewhere. Meat is eaten at almost every meal, all kinds of pork and lamb, and smoked lard is hung in front of every household.
Among all kinds of delicacies, there is one that is very difficult for us outsiders to accept: cow dung roast. The locals are so ferocious that they can eat raw after directly killing livestock.
This kind of cow is last meal before they come to life. They will be fed various fresh herbs and Chinese medicinal herbs and killed just before they are digested.
After a simple cleaning, it can be immediately turned into a hot pot. But in order to preserve original taste, chef may even leave leftover food.
Such an interesting Guizhou, such a beautiful scenery, such an intricate cow dung pot, would you like to come and see it?
