After finishing the grassland tour in Xilinhot, we rested for a week, and we couldn’t stop planning a small barbecue on the weekend. The time was approaching, the weather forecast was rainy, and the original plan was cancelled. No matter what, I couldn’t stand the lonely people. Early in the morning Opening his eyes, Brother Tao made a phone call and left as soon as he said. The target this time is Mentougou. Speaking of Mentougou District, it is located in the west of Beijing, covered with huge forests, including vast virgin forests and ancient villages. On the journey, go straight along the 109 National Highway. A few people in the car Discussing where to go, a thought suddenly came to my mind. I thought that the first time I went off-road was to drive the Sagitar bravely into the sky, but I hit a wall and returned, and a set of oil pan was damaged for this. . . With “Dabai” today, let’s revisit the old place, choose a viewing platform to stay, simply plan the route, and then set off to start the journey.
Different from the previous route, this time I chose to take a small road. In addition to enjoying the natural scenery, I also wanted to visit several ancient villages.
The first stop of the journey – Jieshi Village
The stone plaque at the gate of the village entrance looks quite old in color. It is even more ancient and vicissitudes against the backdrop of rainy clouds and mist. (The specific year of Libian is unknown)
The origin of the village name of Jieshi Village, the various guide signs of the small ancient village are very delicate, and the map guides are all available. Here I can’t help feeling the great achievements of new rural construction, vigorously developing rural tourism culture, and helping people in these deep mountains get rich.
The panoramic guide map of Jieshi Village, here is also a photo, as a reference for later friends.
Park your car on the side of the road, and there are multiple entrances to enter the village. Each house has a numbered house number, which is clean and standardized.
Walking in the streets of the village, there is an atmosphere of culture everywhere. I call this place the “Cultural Corner”. A stone mill, a stone wall, and a piece of calligraphy are typical Chinese elements! It was only after taking pictures that I noticed the words “best photo spot” in the corner.
It is also a cultural experience to walk along the trails in the village and watch as you go. The thick old trees convey its age, and the mottled brick walls retain their original style.
Shimen piers, wooden thresholds, architectural elements that have been gradually eliminated in urban construction are still playing their residual heat here, and they also tell children that “this is the Chinese culture left by the ancestors”.
Sitting on the ground at the threshold, full of ancient rhyme.
Children are always full of curiosity about new things, they look and ask questions as they go, and look up at “good luck always comes”.
The plank road along the river at the entrance of the village is very suitable for enjoying the shade in summer. It is a leisurely and peaceful scene. It is definitely a good choice to get rid of the busy urban life and bring your family here to spend a leisurely weekend! However, it is not as poor as you can see here. High-end folk houses cost 500-700 yuan per night, and even ordinary farmhouses cost about 200 yuan. As for the environment, interested friends can refer to it on Baidu.
The cultural relics of wells full of age are no strangers to children. They have seen them as early as one year old when they visited Xiangtun (the most beautiful village in Changping). Children have a strong memory and will never forget these ancient cultural relics. .
It seems that playing with water is an indispensable part of every child’s fun. Looking at the water in the wooden basin, the little guy was eager to try, but I decisively stopped it here.
Visiting the village for a week has yielded a lot. On the way back, I did not forget the ditch I was thinking about. I always wanted to flip through the guardrail and jump into the ditch.
The short stay in Jieshi Village has been full of rewards. When I leave, I will attach the most beautiful picture! Travel and play, environmental protection first!
Don’t leave anything but footprints and smiles, and here I also extend, “Take nothing but photos and trash!”
Say goodbye to Jieshi Village and continue the journey. The flat asphalt road gradually turns into a mottled cement trail. As the altitude gradually climbs, the weather gradually improves. There are many beautiful scenery here.
The sky is clear.
a list of small hills.
“Dabai” has a shot!
Walking through the path, I arrived at Yanhe City, and found a high ground to get a panoramic view of Yanhe City. The river running below is the Yongding River, which is also the source of the Yongding River.
Adjust the focus and click another shot.
Yanhe City is under the jurisdiction of Zijingguan, one of the three passes in the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty. To rush. According to the “Yanhe City Garrison Mansion Stele”: “The mountain is the city along the river, and the river is the pond, which is the throat of the capital.” Simply put, it is the earliest garrison pass and later became a village.
The city along the river is built on the hillside. It is a four-sided city wall structure. The length of the city is about 420 meters from east to west, and about 300 meters from north to south. There are two gates in the east and west. stone structure. The city wall was built with strip stones and cobblestones (now most of them have collapsed). In the city, there is a stone tablet “The Story of Building the City along the Estuary”, which records the whole process of building the city defense by Zhang Lu, the imperial censor in the sixth year of Wanli in the Ming Dynasty (1578). Friends who are interested in history can come here for a deep tour and explore the ancient sites.
When the clock reaches 11 o’clock, the stomachs of everyone who have not eaten breakfast start to growl. Let’s eat in advance. As a person who is ready to go out at any time, snacks and water will always be prepared in the car for emergencies. This has become a Our living habits, so stop and resupply at any time!
Don’t eat too well. According to Sister Xue’s standards, the meat must be cooked by yourself, and it must be fresh ingredients. Then I have to thank Brother Tao for his craftsmanship, but they definitely came prepared when they saw the elbow! Delicious and not greasy, I contracted this dish.
Due to the flood discharge of the Guanting Reservoir, the Yongding River has a strong flow, and more than half of the forest on the river bank has been submerged. After discussing with several people, they continued to set off and headed straight for Longmenkou—a line of sky.
When it comes to Longmenkou, we have to mention Longmengou. Longmenkou is located at the mouth of Longmengou. To the north is Shiyanggou. The mouth of Shiyanggou is Yanhekou. The convergence point is Yongding River, and the convergence point happens to be Yanhecheng Village. As two classic off-road routes in the suburbs of Beijing, this place also attracts many off-road enthusiasts to experience. The route map is not provided here. Friends who are interested can find a lot of road books on Baidu. One thing that needs to be explained is Longmengou. The line has been cut off and cannot pass through, and we were lucky to avoid the inspectors this time and enter Shiyanggou to complete the crossing. There are countless scenery along the way, let’s enjoy it below.
