You will have chance to enjoy the sunrise in the early morning (according to weather condition) before get down the Yellow Mountain. Later, transfer to Hongcun Village, first built in South Song dynasty. The creative and intelligent ancestors of the villagers made an efficient water system imitating the digestion system of a buffalo in the village: water channels flow by the doors of every house, leading to a semilunar pond, which can be regarded as the buffalo's stomach. The four bridges over the rivers and pond form the four feet of the cattle. Therefore, Hongcun Village is also nicknamed as Buffalo-like Village.

If time permits, we will also arrange the Chengkan Village before your trip ends.

  • Chengkan Village - First built in the early times of the Three Kingdoms Period (220-280), Chengkan Village is famous for its well-preserved and amazingly designed residential architecture of Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.). Additionally, it is a wonder among the ancient villages in China for its special layout. It's said it was constructed according to the theory of the Eight Trigramkan in I Ching (the Book of Changes). It can be inferred from the name of the village, Cheng & Kan, which are the two most basic elements (Ying and Yang).
